After months and months of waiting, CBS finally released the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery yesterday and one aspect stood out above all the rest, the Klingon’s new look.
One other interesting aspect about the ancient group of Klingons that should be acknowledged is how religious they were. In the trailer, it seems like the Klingons have gathered together for a religious ceremony.
Georgiou is the captain of the Starship U.S.S Shenzhou. Is that the Shenzou we see coming through the clouds? Georgiou tells Burnham “It’s hard to imagine you’ve served under me for seven years,” as they trek across a desert planet.
I think these two clips are from the first two episodes of Discovery, where the U.S.S Shenzhou finds a mysterious object floating in space. Inside this ship they discovery a race of Klingons which has been asleep for a long time only to be awakened when Burnham boards the ship.
We also get some shots of the inside of the U.S.S Shenzhou and her crew.
These new starfleet uniforms look great and the U.S.S Shenzhou looks very big from inside, also the bridge looks like its on the bottom of the ship which is very unusual.
Sarek also makes appearance in the video clip, and has some words of wisdom for Burnham
“Great unifies are few and far between, but they do come. Often such leaders will need a profound cause for their followers to rally around,”
If Sarek and Burnham are BFFs, this presents some interesting questions about her character… Was Burnham raised on Vulcan? Because that what it looks like from the trailer and that is… pretty awesome.
We also get to see the new communicator which Starfleet use and looks very much like a flip phone.
I have watched these two clips several times and i must admit I am looking forward to Discovery when it finally comes out.
CBS have also added three more episodes to Discovery, it was originally going to have 12 episodes but this has now been changed to 15.
