To face the unknown, one has to time travel a few hundred years into the future.
On Star Trek Day, all the Trekkies got a surprise when CBS released the official trailer for the upcoming third season of Star Trek: Discovery. After waiting a year and a half following the end of season 2, fans got a look into what was ahead for the crew of Discovery after the season finale ended with them getting flung into a time wormhole: a whole new future. The crew jumps 930 years into the future where they find themselves crash landing on a strange planet and happening upon new, hopefully friendly, faces.
It is not all new and exciting things as Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) soon realizes when she learns about the mysterious event, “the Burn,” which caused devastation and as new character Cleveland “Book” Bookland (portrayed by David Ajala) states in the trailer, “was the day the galaxy took a hard left.” Nothing else is said about it, but it sets up the season to be an exhilarating one. The trailer also shows Michael falling into the leader role naturally and unafraid for what may be coming their way.
Watch the trailer below and be ready for the new season of Star Trek: Discovery premieres on October 15th on CBS All Access.
Bringing hope to the future.
