During Comic-Con, CBS launched their latest Star Trek: Discovery trailer for fans both in attendance at their panel and around the world. The newest edition of the Star Trek franchise is set to premiere in the U.S. on CBS All Access Sunday, September 24th, following a broadcast premiere on the CBS Television Network.
The series boasts a fantastic cast and out-of-this-world production quality, but man am I questioning either their take on the Star Trek mythology. The subtitle of “Discovery” suggests a throwback to the exploratory missions of fan-favorite Trek stories, but the trailer showcases doom, gloom, and more starship destruction. Is this what the CBS audience wants? And will it be enough to entice people to pay for the network’s subscription service? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments.
The Star Trek: Discovery panel, moderated by series guest star Rainn Wilson (“Harry Mudd”), featured a conversation with cast members including Sonequa Martin-Green (“First Officer Michael Burnham”), Jason Isaacs (“Captain Gabriel Lorca”), Doug Jones (“Lt. Saru”), Shazad Latif (“Lt. Ash Tyler”), Mary Wiseman (“Cadet Sylvia Tilly”), Anthony Rapp (“Lt. Paul Stamets”) and James Frain (“Ambassador Sarek”). They were joined by executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Heather Kadin and Akiva Goldsman.
