Star Trek: Discovery In Production
The series has already started production in Toronto according to Variety and from the looks of this behind-the-scenes trailer, it looks like the series will not disappoint.
Starting with a tribute to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, the trailer takes us back to the beginning of the franchise with nostalgic photographs of our favorite Trek actors and make-up artists.
We then cut to a massive set piece which looks like it could be the inside of a ship. Soon after, we are shown photographs and a 3D render of the Discovery starship and even get a glimpse at what appears to be the Klingon and Starfleet uniforms.
We also see the Captain's Chair, which has become a Trek icon of its own with a long an rich tradition.

The essence of Star Trek is present in every second of the new teaser and this sneak peek has our anticipation for the new series running at warp speed! The groundbreaking #scifi franchise has been missed on the small screen.
Star Trek: Discovery will be available on CBS and CBS All Access.
