The first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery was just dropped out of warp. And it looks epic as hell.
On Wednesday, during the CBS “Fall Upfronts” presentation, the first Discovery trailer finally emerged. With a look and feel similar to the J.J. Abrams Trek films, the show delivers on a promise to be cinematic and big. The trailer also confirms that the show is a prequel, set exactly ten years before the original Star Trek.
War with the Klingons looms large in the trailer. This lends credence to fan specualtion that the show will center on a secret peace mission between the Federation and the Klingons. Because Discovery writer Nicholas Meyer also directed 1991’s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, this makes a certain amount of sense. That film was about peace between those two outer space governments finally happening after several decades of a cold war.
Watch the trailer in its boldly going glory right here.
