The new trailer for “Star Trek: Discovery” is finally here, and it’s out of this world.
The series faced some bumps along the way, having its premiere delayed, but CBS finally released the trailer at its upfront presentation on Wednesday. From the teaser, we learn that 10 years before Captain Kirk there was First Officer Michael Burnham, aka Sonequa Martin-Green from “The Walking Dead.” And she kicks butt.
In addition to Martin-Green, “Star Trek: Discovery” features a solid cast, including Michelle Yeoh (”Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”) as Captain Philippa Georgiou, Jason Isaacs (aka Lucius Malfoy from “Harry Potter”) as Captain Lorca, and James Frain (”Gotham”) as Spock’s father.
The network seems to have a lot of confidence in the show, as it already bumped up a Season 1 order from 13 to 15 episodes. From this trailer, we can see why.
You can watch “Star Trek: Discovery” on CBS All Access this fall.
