The New Star Trek: Discovery Trailer Depicts A Final Frontier Of Danger

The newest trailer for Start Trek: Discovery dropped at San Diego Comic-Con as CBS introduced a final frontier on the brink of war. While it’s a little hard to tell what’s going on, the focus of Discovery seems to be centered on the burgeoning war between the Klingons and the Federation. The trailer starts with Micahael Burnham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green, talking to her Sarek (Spock’s father) about the Klingon Empire.

“The Klingons have been in disarray for generations”, Sarek insists as we see a rapid reveal of the redesigned intergalactic conquerors. Replete with new star ships, the honor bound warriors are looking to declare open season on Starfleet.  Even so, with the looming Klingon war, the producers of insist that this new series with be a hopeful vision of the future, not a dystopia. While I think that message is a little muddy in the trailer, the excitement level is crystal clear: this will be a new vision of Star Trek.

The trailer also reveals a few moments of Jason Issacs’  as Gabriel Lorca, captain of the USS Discovery and Michelle Yeoh as Philippa Georgiou, captain of the USS Shenzhou. Heck, we even get some teases of the legendary con man Harry Mudd, played by Rainn Wilson. Despite all of this though, the most intriguing take away is that Martin-Green’s protagonist is not only the lead but Spock’s adoptive sister! Say what?!
