CBS has unveiled the first teaser trailer for their upcoming revival of Star Trek, along with a look at the new logo for the series. Focusing on the events taking place between of the sixth Star Trek movie, “The Undiscovered Country,” but before “The Next Generations”, the video promises: “New Crews. New Villains. New Heroes. New Worlds.”
The series will be under the tenure of Bryan Fuller and Nicholas Meyer. Mr. Fuller is better known for developing and show running the television series “Hannibal,” as well as working on two previous Star Trek projects, Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
Meyer is known for what is still considered the finest films of all time, The Wrath of Khan. Even the recent “Star Trek Into Darkness” was heavily influenced by this monumental film. Having these two powerhouses as show-runners will assuage concerns that the series will lose much of the heart and soul of the original series.
Nothing was revealed in relation to cast or general plot, as the footage showed several planets and celestial bodies in space. Though the quality of the special effects for these particular locations do offer some insight into what viewers will experience once the show is underway.
The show will be set to premier around January of 2017, and will be available exclusively online on CBS’s All Access streaming platform.
