Discovery releases new trailer featuring Burnham and Lorca


CBS Entertainment released a new Star Trek: Discovery trailer Thursday afternoon featuring Klingons and plenty of action. Check it out.

CBS Entertainment has been putting out video and information on a daily basis since Star Trek Las Vegas, and that streak continued Thursday afternoon. They released yet another action-packed trailer featuring Klingons, space suits, warp speed and stunning exterior ship visuals.

You can check out the trailer below via the official @startrekcbs twitter account:

Note: it appears this trailer can only be viewed in the United States. If you’re viewing internationally, you can go to our Facebook page to see it.

We’ve got observations. First and foremost, it appears the show will be rated MA. According to, that means the following:

"This program is specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for children under 17. This program may contain one or more of the following: crude indecent language (L), explicit sexual activity (S), or graphic violence (V)."

Whether that proves to be the final rating for the show remains to be seen, but certainly none of these three elements tend to be common in the Star Trek universe. That said, given the modernization that the franchise is about to undergo, it stands to reason that aspects of some or all of these may occur.

So, be aware of that rating, but don’t be intimidated by it.

Aside from that, the trailer itself looks fantastic. The scope of space behind a Klingon ship and a Federation ship is magnificent. Warp speed looks great. The Klingon costumes are remarkable.

We also get our best look so far at Captain Gabriel Lorca, played by Jason Isaacs. In a voiceover, he says “The work we do is hard, and it’s not without sacrifice. We are a long way from home. But I know, it is a sacrifice worth making.”

Being a long way from “home” is a new concept to Discovery. How far from home are they? Why is this the case? What role will that play in the show, or will it play a significant part at all?

Next: Discovery is set to arrive at the perfect time

In the trailer’s final scene, Lorca asks First Officer Michael Burnham: “You know what we need to do?” Burnham firmly replies, “We need to win.”

Star Trek Discovery will launch on September 24th.
