The First Trailer For Star Trek: Discovery Is Here To Boldly Go To Beautiful New Worlds

Video: After a brief tease this morning, CBS have just revealed our first full look at Star Trek: Discovery, giving us our best glimpse at what's to come in the future of Star Trek's past.

Revealed at the network's ongoing Upfronts presentation, the trailer marks the first footage from Discovery beyond the initial ship reveal back at San Diego Comic Con last year. Set before the events of the original series, Discovery follows the crew of the titular Federation starship, helmed by Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs), from the perspective of its First Officer, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin Green).

As well as a better look at the ship, we have glimpses of the new uniforms worn by a pre-Kirk Starfleet, a better look at the Discovery herself, and even a brief hint at the Klingons and Spock's father, Sarek. Star Trek: Discovery — which has also been announced as now having 15 episodes in its first season, up from 13, as well as an accompanying aftershow called Talking Trek — is expected to debut on Netflix this spring.

    Looks an awful lot like JJ Abrams' Star Trek films, right down to the bridge design and lens flares! Hopefully the plot(s) are better.

    Also Klingons dressed up as insects? Please be a in-universe explanation like they are a special cult or something.

    All that being said, I'll still watch it with an open mind and hope for the best - first seasons of Trek often suck after all (I'm looking at you TNG!)

      The ship shown in the trailer is not the Discovery, it is the USS Shenzouh captained by Michelle Yeouh's character.

      The Klingons are from what was called in the concept art that leaked last year, a sarcophagus ship, but since it's been established that Klingons believe the body is just a shell and dont bury their dead, it is probably a Sleeper ship. Which could mean these are Klingons from the distant past of the empire.

        I'd be totally cool with that for an in-universe explaination, even if I'm still not sure about the costumes.

        Klingon appearances have been established in existing canon back to Kahless, 1500 years ago, and they haven't changed significantly in that time (TOS makeup limitations aside). The Klingon design in that trailer is straight up Kelvin-style bullshit. I really hope there's a good explanation for it because this show is supposed to be in the main timeline.

          We've only seen Kahless's clone - which the monks on Boreth weren't sure if it was his DNA, it could have been anyone's clone they programmed with the stories of Kahless

            This moderation bug is getting ridiculous.

            Kahless' clone was created from thousand-year-old blood taken from the Knife of Kirom. If the blood wasn't ancient it would have been detected during Crusher's analysis. The clone's resulting appearance also matched the ancient paintings. He definitely had the correct appearance of Kahless.

    I'll have to watch it several times, not sure what to make of it at the moment, certainly different looking, I'm a long time trek fan so will give it a go.

    Doesn't make me any more or any less interested than simply knowing there is a new Trek series.

    What. Even.
    I love Star Trek, but I'm not sure what to make of this at all.

    Had to search for it on youtube to get to it, but anyway... looks good, interestingly on the clip, I saw there was a coming to Netflix flash, so that good too.

      It's on Netflix outside of the US, from what I understand. They provided a huge chunk of the funding.

    the more it changes the more it stays the same...

    Regarding Michael, here's my theory:
    the child shown is a boy (at such a young age, in unisex clothes and a vulcan unisex haircut,
    gender is very difficult to determine). The chamber is a medical operation device
    which changes Michael's Y-chromosomes to X-chromosomes (there might even be some transporter
    technology involved, it has been used in ST before to change somebody's body/cure an illness/
    remove a parasite). Now that would be a nifty sci-fi technique for gender reassignment surgery :)
