CBS has released a trailer for their upcoming show Star Trek: Discovery. The show had a lot of issues getting off the ground but is now scheduled for this fall. It is set ten years before the original Star Trek series.
Previously, they had announced Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca of The Discovery, but it does not appear that such is the case from the trailer, which never even shows him. Instead, the trailer shows us Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou and mentor of Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green).
The trailer also makes it seem like Burnham is the main character, of the show. We’re also clearly going to have some issues with the Klingons, in this series.
A curious part in the trailer has Sarek (James Frain), Spock’s father, telling Burnham that her “tongue is too human”. Does this mean she’s part Vulcan, was she simply raised on Vulcan, or was he just making a blunt comment to a human student?
Discovery also stars 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, 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.
