  • Star Trek Discovery Trailer Breakdown 13

From what we know, Star Trek: Discovery will happen a decade before the U.S.S. Enterprise took off with Captain Kirk and his right hand man, Spock. Details concerning Star Trek: Discovery had remained relatively scarce, just like the lack of water in the trailer shown on a desert planet.

"Discovery" takes place 10 years before the original series, and if the trailer is any indication, the aforementioned Klingons will be the primary foe (at least in the beginning), perhaps giving us an idea of how the conflict started.

While Sonequa and her captain, Michelle Yeoh are completely new to the Star Trek franchise, the new trailer doesn't seem a far cry from the Star Trek we know and love. Also, the CGI on this show looks absolutely spectacular. Martin-Green is a great actress and will be missed on The Walking Dead.

Star Trek: Discovery is coming to us this fall. A human who has been raised by Vulcans, who stumble upon Klingons, are the flawless ingredients to serve up a storm of a TV series. The series will premiere on the CBS Television Network with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access, the Network's digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, and will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV. Do expect newer trailers to be released in the months to come, which ought to be able to increase anticipation among viewers and hopefully translate to blockbuster viewership figures.
