The wait is over, Star Trek fans! At least, the wait for photos and a video clip.
CBS Wednesday released the first cast photos and a video teaser for CBS All Access's Star Trek: Discovery, the latest series entry in the beloved franchise. The series, originally scheduled to launch early this year, will premiere in the fall.
The new program, which will premiere on CBS with following episodes available at the subscription streaming site, will be set about 10 years before Capt. James T. Kirk's famed "five-year mission" in the original 1960s Star Trek series.
Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead), who plays First Officer Michael Burnham, and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), who plays Capt. Philippa Georgiou, are featured in newly released photos.
The video clip features Georgiou and Burnham, who has served under Georgiou for seven years, walking in a desert before beaming up to the starship. The clip also gives the first glimpse of a Vulcan, some cool-looking Klingons and some new alien species. A confrontation with the Klingons appears imminent.
Other cast members include: Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter franchise) as Captain Lorca, Doug Jones (The Strain, Falling Skies) as science officer Lt. Saru; Rapp (A Beautiful Mind) as Lt. Stamets, an astromycologist and science officer on the Discovery; and Rainn Wilson (The Office) as Harry Mudd.
