CBS has finally released the first full trailer for its hotly anticipated new Star Trek show, “Star Trek: Discovery.”
“Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, there was Discovery,” the opening reads, while dropping us into a desert scene with Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh, first officer and captain of the Discovery respectively.

As Variety points out, Martin-Green seems to be a human raised by Vulcans, based on her interactions in the trailer with Spock’s father Sarek, played by James Frain. “You will never learn Vulcan, your tongue is too human,” Frain says in what appears to be a flashback, featuring a younger Martin-Green.
