“We cannot let fear define us in this moment,” proclaims Sonequa Martin-Green in the explosive trailer for Star Trek: Discovery’s upcoming fourth season. “The future remains uncertain, but the captain in me knows anything is possible,” Martin-Green’s Captain Michael Burnham adds amidst images of loss and also of laughter for the Paramount+ series
Oh yeah, David Cronenberg and Tig Notaro appear too. The latter in her engineer Jett Reno role setting the stakes by deadpanning “I’ve lived a good life.” Check out the trailer above
Along with new key art, the latest look at the November 18 launching fourth season came during Discovery’s New York Comic-Con panel this morning. As well as, Martin-Green, co-stars Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz, Mary Wiseman, David Ajala, Blu del Barrio and EP Michelle Paradise were on hand on-stage at the Big Apple confab today too.
Having launched on September 24, 2017 on what was then CBS All Access, Discovery was the beginning of the massive franchise reboot that now sees almost half a dozen new series, including Star Trek: Picard, on the ViacomCBS-owned streamer. With Burman was a Starfleet captain, Discovery has actually broken away from the cannon of the Gene Roddenberry created Trekverse, opening up new timestreams, tales, and more for the show – as today’s trailer makes clear.
Star Trek kingpin Alex Kurtzman and Paradise serve as co-showrunners and executive produce Discovery with Heather Kadin, Jenny Lumet, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Olatunde Osunsanmi, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.
A blend of the in-person and the virtual, NYCC continues over the weekend.
