It opens with Georgiou telling Burnham, who has served under her for seven years, that it's time for her to lead her own ship, before the two are transported to another world.
The action ramps up as their ship engages with their most formidable Star Trek foe: the Klingons. "I'm trying to save you," Burnham insists to her crew during a dramatic moment in the trailer. "I'm trying to save all of you."
And the stellar new poster features a memorable tagline that teases the adventure that's about to come: "At the edge of the universe, discovery begins."
The first season of Star Trek: Discovery has been expanded to 15 episodes and will premiere this fall, first on CBS before debuting new installments on CBS All Access. A companion aftershow, Talking Trek, will stream on CBS All Access.
