STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Previews the Rest of Season 1

Star Trek: Discovery premiered its first two episodes this week, and back to back, they could be viewed together as the pilot for this series. We really liked it, as you can read here. But they are unlike any of the previous five pilots the franchise has ever had, and paved a whole new path for this, the sixth live-action Star Trek series. Now, CBS All Access has released a trailer for the remainder of season one, which you can view down below.

Massive spoiler warning though – if you have not seen the first two episodes of Discovery, be sure that you do before you watch this trailer, or continue reading!

This trailer really elaborates how different this iteration of Star Trek is from the previous entries in the franchise. Almost every Trek show up to now started out with a pretty similar premise — we are introduced to a ship (or space station), we meet the Captain and they explain how he/she assembled their crew, they have an adventure that’s self contained, and then they warp off to the next adventure for which you must tune in next week. Discovery throws that formula right out the window, using their first two hours to create an elaborate and tragic backstory for its main character, Lt. Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green).

From the looks of this trailer for the rest of season one, Burnham will become a pariah in Starfleet, seen as being responsible for getting the Federation into a war with the Klingon Empire. But it would appear that the Captain of the Discovery (Jason Isaacs) sends her on a path to redemption over the course of the series. Although Deep Space Nine eventually became serialized, this would be the first Star Trek show to be serialized from the word “go,” and based on this new trailer, we are excited for everything that Discovery is going to throw at us.

Are you as excited as we are for the future of Star Trek? Be sure to let us know your thoughts on Discovery in the comments down below.
