Star Trek: Discovery beams in from the far reaches of Federation space

Star Trek returns to TV with Star Trek: Discovery offering up the first new Trek adventures on the small screen in more than 20 years.

Netflix 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 (Walking Dead) and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), 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.

In another tense moment in the trailer, Yeoh says, "Starfleet doesn't fire first." Martin-Green responds, "We have to." There seems to be plenty of action and tough decisions on the Discovery.
