Star Trek Discovery Trailer and Fun Facts

What can we expect from Star Trek Discovery?

 1. Starfleet and Klingons clash in the first trailer for 'Star Trek: Discovery'
2. We see Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) and First Officer Michael Burnham "Number One"(Sonequa Martin-Green) trekking over sandy dunes on a remote planet, before beaming up to a Starfleet vessel.
3. We get a look at new Starfleet uniforms and new Klingons.

 The "new aliens" were preserved during a cryogenic sleep and now everyone knows they're Klingons except for one inescapable fact.....



Just look at his hands.......   Monsters! Agggghhhhh!!!!!!!!! 

4. A mysterious "object of unknown origin" on the far reaches of Federation space leads to an engaging encounter with Klingons...
5. What ship is Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) in charge of? For the first time ever, the lead character won’t be the captain. Its No 1. Take a good look because here's Sonequa Martin-Green in 3 leading action scenes.


NO 1

6. How many captains are there one or two?
7. Klingons don't take prisoners and Starfleet doesn't fire first. It seems the USS Discovery NCC 1031 will face inescapable conflict. The Federation is at war with Klingons.
8. How will hand to hand combat play out when aliens "beam aboard" and want to get physical?


9. No Worf. A theater critic expanded on statements made to Trekmovie that less than 1 percent of what Michael Dorn made in his last contract as Worf was offered for him to appear in the new show.
10. When asked whether the show will premiere in the fall, CBS Interactive President Marc DeBevoise simply said, “We’re not stating.”
11. Set 10 years before the original series “new crews,” “new villains,” “new heroes,” and “new worlds” We know Iconic characters like Kirk, Spock might appear, Sarek (James Frain) has been cast.  So that sets the year around 2255 with the new show bridging the gap between Enterprise and the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 crew.


12. Star Trek: Discovery has expanded its original series order to fifteen episodes continuing to push the boundaries where no aliens have gone before... Apparently, there's an incident in Star Trek history that's been talked about but never explored? Maybe the Redshirts know? A lot happens around the year 2255 in trek's timeline... Do you know what it is?

It's been confirmed that it's not Axanar, the Kobayashi Maru, or the Romulan war. So what sectors of alien space does that leave us in the galaxy to check out? Its a big place ain't it?

Live Long and Prosper.

I remember Picard saying something once about how first contact with the Klingons was a total disaster. This was alluded to on the other shows as well, and I seem to remember hints that the incident went so poorly it led to the creation of the Prime Directive. Maybe that's the story this new show will try to tell.

What a badass looking Klingon. And a badass trailer. I'm pretty hyped for this.

Me too guys. Picard is one of the few Federation captains to take part in the time-honored Klingon ritual at the request of his Klingon security officer Worf. While Picard realizes the Prime Directive isn't a perfect rule he doesn't turn a blind eye to K'mpecs plea when Duras poisoned him but the truth was too unbelievable. Picards oversaw Gowon's installation which avoided plunged the Klingons into civil war.

Did they just release the release date, or has that been known for a while?

Spacer Guy said...

Discovery has two dates now with the 2nd Sept for CBS fans in the USA and the 25th Sept for Netflix viewers in the UK (and presumably around the globe) for watching and uploading every Monday.

But no Worf? What is Star Trek without Warf?

"Monsters! Agggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!"... HA, Ha, make my day.

Spacer Guy said...

Worf is the Klingon you can count on since Star Trek got its second wind, now no Worf - Crystal.

Monsters! We need them, they're a part of Star Trek history, STC.

I hope that's the plan, Tammy.
