Here it is — the first trailer for the new Star Trek series!
During CBS’ upfront presentation at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, the network showed off the first teaser for the new Star Trek series on CBS All Access, which includes a new Star Trek logo. An interesting new take on the familiar Star Trek branding we’ve known for decades, the words “Star Trek” glisten on top of a distressed Starfleet insignia.
In addition to the updated branding, the teaser concluded with the words: “New Crews. New Villains. New Heroes. New Worlds.”
An interesting takeaway from that final line is the pluralization of “crews”, which may or may not fuel the rumors that each season of the new series will showcase a different crew — a totally new take on the Star Trek television concept.
We’ll have more on this breaking story as information comes available.
Tell us what you think of the new Star Trek logo and what the last line could potentially mean in the comments below.
CBS has launch a website to promote the new series. We’ve included a screenshot below, but you can visit the site here.
The first episode of the new series will premiere with a broadcast TV special on CBS. That episode and all subsequent episodes will be exclusively shown in the US on the video streaming service CBS All Access.
Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller and Rod Roddenberry have been announced as executive producers, with Nicholas Meyer (director of The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country and co-writer of The Voyage Home) is serving as a writer and consulting producer.

We had goosebumps watching it. I’m optimistic about this, but still have severe worries about the CBS All Access delivery method, it won’t affect me outside the US but it’s not foreign ratings they go by.

lol awesome sauce! I had goosebumps as well. I too am optimistic. If it is indeed an anthology series there are pros and cons to it. Con, its takes more than a year for the characters to develop and actors to get into the groove. TNG, DS9 and VOY all took about three seasons to become something really good. Switching to a different crew and era each season would not allow for that 7 year development. Pro, it would allow us to continue exploring eras we do not know much about and beyond. Post Archer/Pre Kirk era and the Romulan War. Post Kirk/Pre Picard with the Khitomer Accords and the Tomed Incident. As well as the many centuries post Voyager/Nemesis. All of that excites me!
My only worry about the All Access delivery system is that it wont get the viewer numbers it would on cable. And viewer numbers are make or break. It wont effect me either as I am outside the US in Canada, unless CBS releases an All Access service for Canada. But as of now in Canada Star Trek can only be viewed on the Space cable channel or the CraveTV streaming service, both of which are owned by Bell Media. All the Star Trek series from TOS to Enterprise, including the animated series can be found on CraveTV, so I assume Bell Media has distribution rights for Star Trek here in Canada. If I had to subscribe to All Access, I would not complain and I have no idea why people are. Its dirt cheap, less than 2 bucks an episode for Star Trek (and there will be other content) and you can end your service when you choose, you’re not locked in for a year. I cut cable, I subscribe to three different streaming services, Netflix, CraveTV and Shomi. A total of about $30 (Canadian) a month. And I get way more TV shows and movie options at that price than I did with my cable package which cost more. Again, All Access is dirt cheap, people should not be complaining.

Lots of great observations there, many conclusions I’ve come to as well, your views would be really welcome on the Disqus Sci-Fi & Fantasy Channel that I run.

I can’t believe CBS is being so greedy as to make the U.S. Star Trek fans pay to see all but the first episode of the new 2017 Star Trek series when it airs in January. You’ll have to pay for “CBS All Access” in addition to your cable/satellite service if you want to see all the episodes after the first one. CBS will rake in even more money than they would normally receive for this new series. Just another example of greedy monopolizing by corporate America at the expense of the little people. Why should we think they would value all the fans who make Star Trek shows, movies, & commercial items so successful and profitable.

Im also calling it, (wish I could post a comparison photo) Romulus supernova. That planet which looks very much like Romulus close to a raging sun. When Bryan Fuller said “easter eggs” it was my first thought. Prime universe, post Nemesis.

“Crews” would seem to fit with the rumor of this being an anthology show. I still need to see more to be sold.

I love that they are continuing the look and feel of the last two movies. I was worried this was going to be another “Voyager” or “Enterprise” or, god forbid, the first season of TNG.
