Star Trek: Discovery’s season 3 trailer steps into a bold new future

1 min read

You have to give credit to CBS and the creative team behind Star Trek: Discovery, for a bold and innovative storyline that has truly taken the Star Trek franchise to new and exciting places. With a sci-fi franchise that has been running for over 40 years across many different TV series and movies, you think it would be difficult to find not only new stories to tell but also exciting ways to tie all that narrative into an existing timeline. Star Trek Discovery has done just that and has proved to be extremely popular with fans who have enjoyed the rollercoaster adventures of Commander Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery.

After season 2 ended on a massive cliffhanger which saw the crew travel through a wormhole and 938 years into the future to save the Universe, we finally have the first trailer for the latest season:

PS: If the link below doesn’t work because CBS decided to geofence a trailer for an internationally-beloved series that has been seen worldwide, click here.

After following Commander Burnham into the wormhole in the second season finale, season three of Star Trek: Discovery finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery landing in an unknown future far from the home they once knew. Now living in a time filled with uncertainty, the U.S.S. Discovery crew, along with the help of some new friends, must work together to restore hope to the Federation.

The third season sees the return of the core cast, with Doug Jones (Commander Saru), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Commander Paul Stamets), Mary Wiseman (Ensign Sylvia Tilly), Wilson Cruz (Dr Hugh Culber), and Michelle Yeoh (Philippa Georgiou). New cast members include David Ajala (Cleveland β€œBook” Booker) and Blu del Barrio (Adira). The show premieres on October 15, with a Netflix arrival coming shortly thereafter.

    Can’t be worse than the first two seasons…. Or Picard. Damn you Alex Kurtzman!

      I skipped Picard because of Discovery, and I doubt I’ll bother with it.

      Yeah, I’ll admit, Saru is pretty cool, and Jones has really done wonders with the character.

        He does wonders with any character he plays.
        If they ever bring out awards for “Best Performance whilst suffocating in Prosthetics”, he’ll end up getting a lifetime achievement award.

          I think both Doug Jones and Andy Serkis deserve more credit for their acting. It’s like they’re in a class of their own….

            Serkis is the king of mo-cap. Jones is the king of prosthetics.

            Yes, fully agree, they deserve way more credit than they get.

    I hate watched the first two seasons (with the second one really being one of the worst things I’ve seen in years). I’ll definitely skip this season.

    Luckily, this will be the last season of Discovery, because it’s basically cancelled. It’s not official yet, but there definitely won’t be a season 4.

            That saddens me Gavin. It would have actually defused the situation completely, and shown a nuanced understanding of not only interpersonal relationships but also conflict resolution.

            Why would you want to escalate a situation? I don’t quite get your logic. Or do you mean I like to escalate a situation? If so, are you sure you’re not just blinded by bias? A case of friends of friends getting preferential treatment, and thus leeway during moderation, whereas those that you personally dislike are deemed “harmful people”?

            Hey, it’s your site to moderate as you like, but you should know that sort of moderation just makes situations even more toxic. After all, snide remarks may be passive aggressive, but they’re still an attack, and if it seems that some people can get away with that…

            September 9, 2020 at 14:53

            I was hesitant with him in the role at first, but only because my only reference for him was Inhumans.
            After his first appearance, I was sold. Damn fine actor.

            September 9, 2020 at 14:53

            Yeah, Inhumans was really bad, and there really wasn’t much that he could do with a character like Black Bolt. :/ But at least, now he’s going to have his own Star Trek Show. It’s going to pay homage to classic Trek and I can already feel it in my bones… it’s going to be awesome.

            September 9, 2020 at 15:13

            Seeing how good Anson Mount is as Pike upsets me so much because it shows how he was wasted on Inhumans.

            Rumour has it that when Marvel reboots the inhumans into the MCU properly in Ms. Marvel, it’s going to be hinted at that the show we saw was actually just a bad TV series people watch in the MCU.

            When I read that he had issues with someone on the production side of Discovery (and that there was an altercation), I almost thought he’d never get a chance to return to the role. The fact that Star Trek Strange New Worlds is going to happen. Brings tears of joy to my crusty old man eyes…..

        Have you watched the animated one yet? Star Trek Lower Decks? I could only stomach two episodes. It’s really… really…. really… bad and unfunny. It’s like Rick and Morty for people with room-temperature IQ.

          My viewing timetable is quite limited. I generally have 10 minute windows to watch things, then it’s back to the chaos.

            Tell me about it, I curate what I watch heavily now. It also means I’m even more critical. I used to give a show three or four episodes leeway, but if it doesn’t get me by my jellies after two episodes after the pilot, I won’t bother any more.

            I think you have to give a show a chance at least beyond the pilot. Pilots are usually not the best place to judge a show.

            Watchmen fell into that category for me. Took me ages to get through the first 3 episodes.

            I’ll say this for it.
            You HAVE to know the original source material.
            They added SO much nuance to it that could have been missed if you haven’t read the original graphic novel.
            I thought it was sublime.

            It’s weird, I felt the opposite, I thought it missed the nuance of the source material (the graphic novel) and rather opted to stick closer to the movie… But maybe it all changes after episode 7? I just can’t go back there… lol. It’ll just have to one of those things for me.

            And don’t get me wrong, I LOVED the movie. First time I saw it I thought it was one of the best things I’d ever watched.
            I only read the original afterwards, and then loved that even more.

            The events in this series were a logical step forward. Everything made sense.

      This is true, popcorn. I mean with Picard, he’s unrecognisable. He’s nothing like he was in the series. He’s a bumbling unsure guy that’s being talked down to half the time. Not the steadfast intelligent captain he portrayed for so many years.

        This was one of the reasons I skipped it, I didn’t think that he would be the Picard of old, and I was worried that the old man version would be portrayed as a broken shell of what he was, and thus sully the memory I had of him (even during Star Trek nemesis… which let’s face it, wasn’t a great movie to begin with).

        I like the idea of seeing where he ends up and his story continuing, but I didn’t like Discovery and since the same creative forces were involved, I knew I wouldn’t like Picard. Maybe, one day, I’ll watch. I might even be pleasantly surprised, but for now, I can just rewatch Star Trek Next Generation on Netflix.
