Star Trek: Discovery is off to a roaring start, with the response from critics and fans being mostly positive, and the CBS broadcast of the premiere episode garnering almost 10 million viewers and a record number of sign-ups for the CBS All Access app, on which all subsequent episodes will be available. That’s pretty good, considering a lot of fans weren’t too happy with CBS’ decision to make the new series — the first time a Star Trek television series has graced our screens in 12 years — an exclusive series for its streaming service.
The first two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery have been released, and an exciting new trailer teasing what’s to come in the remainder of the show’s 15 episode debut season was shown following the second episode. For those of you not subscribed to CBS All Access, you can now watch the trailer online. Major Spoiler Warning, if you have not yet watched both of the episodes that have been released so far, “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars.”
Check out the trailer below:
Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green as Commander Michael Burnham, Doug Jones as Lieutenant Saru, Jason Isaacs as Captain Gabriel Lorca, Anthony Rapp as Lieutenant Stamets, Shazad Latif as Lieutenant Tyler, Maulik Pancholy as Dr. Nambue, Sam Vartholomeos as Ensign Connor, Mary Wiseman as Cadet Tilly, Rekha Sharma as Commander Landry, Wilson Cruz as Dr. Hugh Culber, Terry Serpico as Admiral Anderson, Clare McConnell as Dennas, Kenneth Mitchell as Kol, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, Damon Runyan as Ujilli, Chris Obi as T’Kuvma, James Frain as Sarek, Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou, and Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.
