Discovery is the sixth live-action Star Trek television series and the first to air in over 10 years! The story takes place before the events of the original Star Trek series, which made its debut in 1966. The original portrayed a vision of humanity’s future as it would look in the 23rd century. Many celebrities attended the premiere, including William Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original series and Nichelle Nichols, who played Lt. Nyota Uhura. Members of the media also attended, as well as the stars and creators of the show, and they were greeted by a line of fans dressed in costumes of many of the Star Trek franchise’s characters. The characters included Trek aliens like Klingons, Andolians, and more.
If you’re a huge Star Trek fan, and want to watch the premiere, you’ll have to wait a few more days! But in the meantime, check out the official Star Trek: Discovery trailer for a sneak peek below! (If it doesn’t make you immediately want to turn into a Trekkie yourself, we don’t know what will!)
