This is a world of Star Trek we haven't explored and we get to go on this journey with an incredible woman played by Sonequa Martin-Green.

We just got our first look at the trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, and there's a lot to unpack for fans eager to return to the final frontier.

It will be a prequel, taking place 10 years before 1966's original "Star Trek" series.

Star Trek Discovery is going to be a game-changing show for several reasons, but with the release of the trailer it seems that we'll be adding to that list, at least if we can believe what we're seeing.

From what we know, Star Trek: Discovery will happen a decade before the U.S.S. Enterprise took off with Captain Kirk and his right hand man, Spock. Star Trek: Discovery will star Michelle Yeoh (of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame) as the captain of the Shenzhou. Also, the CGI on this show looks absolutely spectacular. First, there were no scenes with the Discovery or Captain Lorca. One or more of them could have been one of the focal points in this new series besides the Vulcans.

A section of opinion makers argues that the President's behaviour constitutes obstruction of justice and he must be impeached. The White House said the memo was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal" of the conversation.

"Star Trek" is back on their original platform and it is looking good. The production is movie-quality, with typical "Trek" attention to costumes, from the new Star Fleet uniforms to the believable aliens.

The streaming service has said the series will "feature a new ship, new characters, and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers". Gene Roddenberry intended Star Trek to exist in a world where racism, sexism, homophobia, and just general xenophobia (defined as "fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is unusual or foreign") didn't exist anymore.

CBS also announced that Star Trek: Discovery has been expanded to 15 episodes and will be accompanied by an after-show Talking Trek.

Following a bunch of delays, the series is finally set to debut this fall.
