CBS has released the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery and I really like what I see! This looks a lot better than what I was expecting and I'm excited to watch it! The series has had a long road to production but it looks like it paid off. This first trailer made a great first impression.
Star Trek: Discovery is set on a new ship and will follow new characters who embark on new adventurous missions while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. The trailer came with the tagline, "Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery".
The cast for the series includes Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou. Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca, Doug Jones as science officer Saru, Anthony Rapp as fellow science officer Stamets, Terry Serpico as Starfleet admiral Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as chief medical officer Nambue, Sam Vartholomeos as junior Starfleet officer Connor, Mary Wiseman as Cadet Tilly, James Frain as Sarek, astrophysicist and father of Spock, Chris Obi as Klingon leader T’Kuvma, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, a Klingon commander, Shazad Latif as Lieutenant Tyler, Rekha Sharma as Commander Landry, Kenneth Mitchell as Kol, Clare McConnell as Dennas, Damon Runyan as Ujilli, and Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.
Star Trek: Discovery is set to premiere in May on CBS before going to CBS All Access. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think!
