The SDCC 2017 trailer for Star Trek: Discovery turns the wistful I’d Love to Change the World into a dirge.
This new, explosive trailer features space battles; Cmdr Burnham in the brig; Klingons speaking Klingon (we’re told there will be sub-titles); and Captain Lorca addressing Burnham, ‘You helped start a war. Don’t you want to help me end it?’ All this and Harry Mudd!
Star Trek: Discovery premieres Sunday, Sept. 24 at 8:30/7:30c, on both CBS and its streaming arm CBS All Access. Subsequent episodes will stream exclusively on CBS Access.
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.
