This afternoon in New York, CBS held their annual ‘Upfront’ presentation to affiliates and advertisers. During their presentation they showed a brand new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, the first with actual show footage since production began in January.
Region-locked trailer for USA from CBS

Obviously there is a lot to analyze, so check back later for a TrekMovie deep dive into the trailer.
Season 1 extended to 15 episodes, ‘Talking Trek’ announced
Besides the trailer, the other big news item from the Upfronts is that CBS has upped the first season episode order from the originally planned 13 to 15. In addition CBS announced a new aftershow called Talking Trek. There are no other details available at this time on that show, such as who will host.
Still set for fall
As for a premiere date all that was said is what we have already heard. The show will premiere in the fall with the pilot airing on the CBS Television Network and subsequent episodes will be available on the CBS All Access streaming service. However, we still don’t have a specific date.
UPDATE 2 – New photos
CBS has released a new poster revealing the tagline “At the edge of the universe, discovery begins.”
