Star Trek: Discovery Trailer: Watch First Footage From CBS All Access Series

We still don’t know exactly when Star Trek: Discovery will take flight, but CBS has released the first trailer from its highly anticipated All Access offshoot.

The dazzling promo was first unveiled at the network’s upfront presentation Wednesday, shortly after it was announced that Season 1 will consist of 15 episodes, up from 13.

The forthcoming Discovery — slated to bow this fall — will be told from the perspective of Michael Burnham (The Walking Dead‘s Sonequa Martin-Green), First Officer of the Starship Discovery. Additional characters include Captain Lorca (The OA‘s Jason Isaacs), Spock’s dad Sarek (True Blood‘s James Frain), Dr. Nambue (30 Rock‘s Maulik Pancholy) and Philippa Georgiou (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon‘s Michelle Yeoh) as captain of the U.S.S. Shenzhou. The series will also feature Harry Mudd (The Office‘s Rainn Wilson), the interglacial criminal first portrayed in the original Star Trek series by actor Roger C. Carmel.

Have at it, Trekkies: Does the first footage whet your appetite for Discovery, or has it done the reverse and made you less excited about the CBS All Access series? Also, what do you think of the official key art below?
