As we continue to count down the days until Star Trek: Discovery premieres – nearly two long years since its original announcement in November 2015 – CBS has released yet another new thirty-second promotional video for the series, with some brand new footage included.
Included is an expanded bit of material from Michael Burnam’s (Sonequa Martin-Green) spacewalk, from her emergence and launch from the hull of the USS Shenzhou…
…and her time floating about the Klingon obelisk vessel parked near the binary star pairing seen so often in these promos.
Flashing back to the show’s visit to the desert planet, see Captain Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) using her Starfleet phaser rifle – with golden beam – towards something below her:
We also get to see some more from inside the USS Discovery, with Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) on the bridge — with Saru (Doug Jones):
…cadet Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman) expressing her excitement over their current mission…
With the expected time jump between Burnham’s time on the Shenzhou and Discovery, we don’t see this as the commander of the ill-fated USS Europa, seen destroyed in prior trailer’s during Georgiou’s time in command of that ship – so we’re not sure what ship she might be captain of quite yet.
Finally, this new preview gives Lorca a bit of action, as the Discovery captain is seen sliding across a dark corridor wielding a phaser rifle of his own:
It’s not clear who – or what – he’s aiming at, but wearing that tactical vest you can be sure Lorca means business.
