‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Promo Heralds Beginning of Production

CBS today released a revealing new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery to the theme of “Star Trek is…,” the first three words Gene Roddenberry wrote in 1964. This is our first glimpse at the show’s sets, costumes, uniforms, and ships.

After slightly altering the delta shield in the Star Trek: Discovery logo yesterday, CBS today released a behind the scenes trailer that shows off sets under construction, costumes, ship designs, uniforms, and a closing shot of the captain’s chair.

Take a look at the full video, followed by stills of the aforementioned elements:

A cleaner shot of the new Starfleet uniforms (thanks Karl!) from the promo as seen on Netflix, where Discovery will air internationally. Check out what is clearly a pip on the lower left of the delta insignia.

EDITOR’S NOTE: For those curious, this ship appears to be derived from a John Eaves design from a few years ago as a possible ship for Star Trek Online.
