Michelle Yeoh's Captain Philippa Georgiou immediately exhibits a commanding presence, with The Walking Dead alumni Sonequa Martin-Green ready to take command as First Officer Michael Burnham.

Rumours have hinted that the show will involved some sort of ancient Klingon race arriving via 'a sarcophagus ship.' This thing, around 1m20s into the trailer certainly looks very sarcophagus-y.

The first images were beamed across the world at last year's San Diego Comic Con, showcasing a golden spacecraft and revealing a timeline set before the Enterprise had boldly gone with Captain Kirk at the helm.

Sonequa Martin-Green, star of Star Trek Discovery, unveiled the first look teaser trailer and key art for the new series.

The series will premiere on the CBS network, with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access. Additionally, Jason Isaacs, known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, will star as the captain of the Starship Discovery, Captain Lorca. It's hard to judge a show from a single trailer alone, particularly a Star Trek show, whose best moments likely won't be its action sequences. Star Trek: Discovery will air 15 episodes, expanding the initial order. Given the trailer, we can see why - between the special effects, diverse cast, and nostalgia, we're on the edge of our seats as we anticipate the CBS All Access original.

There are sequences and characters - like Spock's father - that will resonate with fans, but it's clear this isn't the same Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry launched in 1966.

Considering the huge pressure on this show-from Star Trek fanboys to network execs wanting to push CBS All Access-it's clear that no expense was spared on the new series. Taking place 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery looks poised to do some bold writing - or even rewriting - of the franchise's history books.
