‘Star Trek Discovery’ Trailer Delivers Crazy Take On The Franchise

Star Trek Discovery is going to be a game-changing show for several reasons, but with the release of the trailer it seems that we’ll be adding to that list, at least if we can believe what we’re seeing. It’s already going to be a very interesting trip into the Star Trek universe, going pre-Kirk/Enterprise, and it’s a massive effort of a show that will air exclusively on CBS All Access, but now we learn that it’s also going a little weird with the timeline… apparently.

I’ll be honest, I’m not the most knowledgeable fan there is, and given what has happened with the franchise through the last few movies, I suppose anything is possible, but there are hints at some odd ideas here.

That said, we get to see quite a bit of flash and spectacle, so if you thought the plan for airing this one in less than traditional ways meant they were going to skimp, I don’t think you have to worry there.

Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t give us a lot when it comes to some of the show’s cooler notes, like the fact that Rainn Wilson will be around as Harry Mudd.

At any rate, we at least get more episodes. Check out the trailer below.


CBS All Access unveiled the first trailer for the long-delayed and highly anticipated reboot as part of CBS’ upfront presentation Wednesday in New York.

During the presentation, CBS Interactive president Marc DeBevoise announced that the episode order has been upped to 15 episodes for season one. The first episode will premiere on the linear CBS channel this fall with all subsequent episodes streaming exclusively on CBS All Access.

The series also stars Jason Isaacs as Lorca, the captain of the Starship Discovery; Rainn Wilson will play Harry Mudd, the charismatic conman and intergalactic criminal; Doug Jones plays science officer Saru; Anthony Rapp is set as fellow science officer Stamets; James Frain plays Sarek, a Vulcan astrophysicist and Spock’s father; with Michelle Yeoh set to recur as Georgiu, captain of another ship called the Shenzhou.
