Watch the first trailer for Netflix's 'Star Trek

CBS releases first photo of 'Star Trek: Discovery' characters

Star Trek: Discovery will premiere on CBS later this year before becoming a CBS All Access exclusive for the rest of its 15-episode first season.

The trailer opens with Sonequa Martin-Green's First Officer Michael Burnham and Michelle Yeoh's Captain Philippa Georgiou, captain of the starship Shenzou, walking through a desert planet.

But even if it's the case that it takes place in the Kelvin timeline, this doesn't look like a particularly good Star Trek show. The series will premiere on the CBS Television Network with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access.

A shiny new Star Trek: Discovery trailer has landed, which shows some extreme visual upgrades to the iconic franchise. Also of interest is James Frain's Sarek, father of Spock, who appears to mostly be a hologram and also a bit of a jerk.

Conspicuously absent from the trailer was Jason Isaacs, who is supposedly playing the captain of the U.S.S. "Discovery". Among what was shown in the trailer was a clip corresponding to the newly-released image from the show.

Above is a preview for Star Trek: Discovery.

Not for nothing either: when the show arrives on CBS All Access later this year, viewers will be paying a monthly access fee to catch the content in the USA and Canada. It's a promising sign that this show will find ways to tell new stories and show us something new in a series that's more than 50 years old.

Set a decade before the original Star Trek, Discovery will revisit the Federation's past, pointing to a time when intergalactic diplomacy may have been a shoot-first-ask-peaceful-questions-later affair.

CBS has yet to set a debut date for Star Trek: Discovery.

2009's Star Trek has a lot of problems, but it does something pretty smart with how it creates a new timeline.
