CBS Debuts STAR TREK TV Revival Teaser Trailer & Logo

Star Trek on TV is happening, people.

At the CBS Upfront presentation at Carnegie Hall in New York, CBS Studios released the first teaser trailer and logo for the 2017 revival of Star Trek, which will premiere on CBS before moving exclusively on digital platform CBS All Access.

The 50-second teaser is little more than rocketing through space with a Voiceover Guy, who simply says "CBS presents...a new adventure" as we spiral through the universe before coming across the familiar Starfleet logo.  And then, we're promised...

NEW CREWS (Crews, plural?)

So...something new, then.

The new series will reportedly be set between the final film featuring the original cast, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and Star Trek: The Next Generation's pilot episode "Encounter at Farpoint."  Bryan Fuller will serve as showrunner, while Nicholas Meyer, writer and director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI, will be a writer and executive producer for the series.

If you'd like to check out the 50-second teaser, you can view it below thanks to CBS' official YouTube account...

  1. So weird. The universe is trying to tell me something. I was just talking about Star Trek on TV yesterday and I said that we need Star Trek on TV. We should always have episodic Star Trek in transmission. And like an answer to my call... boom. Thanks Charles.
