The first full trailer for CBS All Access upcoming Star Trek: Discovery was just released:
The much maligned series has had all kinds of issues stemming from the loss of their announced showrunner (Bryan Fuller) to a seemingly uninterested mothership who can’t come to a decision on when exactly the series will appear on CBS’s streaming service.
All things considered, the trailer has everything we’d hoped for from early reports; good looking visuals, female characters (hopefully well written ones) and a sense of adventure.
It was announced also during the CBS Upfronts today that the series order has been increased and will now be a full 15 episodes rather than the previously announced dozen.

We also learned there will be a secondary show in addition to Discovery, called Talking Trek. Everyone is rightfully assuming this is a Star Trek copy of the AMC Walking Dead after show, Talking Dead but thankfully this one won’t be hosted by Chris Hardwick. Early indications are that Access Hollywood’s Scott Manz will be in the host’s seat.
And those Klingons, amirite?
