This morning CBS released a new web promo for Star Trek: Discovery on Twitter with the message “We are a long way from home.” Unlike the promo released last week, this new one features some new footage from the show mixed in with previously seen footage from the two trailers. Check it out.
What’s new in the new promo
The new promo starts off with a new shot of Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham.
There is also some new voice over. It is unclear if it is dialog from the show but it appears Burnham is talking to T’Kuvma, the head of the Klingons saying:
We strive towards this dream of peace where all species can share common ground. Yet no dream will protect us from you.
This is accompanied by a new shot of T’Kuvma and some close-up shots of the Klingon armor and a Klingon hand grasping what appears to be a bat’leth.
Later in the promo we see a new shot of Jason Isaacs as Captain Gabriel Lorca. This includes dialog of him which is used as voice over:
The work we do is hard. It is not with out sacrifice. We are a long way from home. But I know it is sacrifice worth making.
We also see a new shot of Lorca and Burnham walking along a corridor of the U.S.S. Discovery with the exchange:
Lorca: “You know what we need to do…”
Burnham: “We need to win.”
Lorca: “That’s the spirit.”
- From the new promo we can see in the USA this will be rated TV-MA
- Note that Burnham has no insignia at all in her scene with Lorca, this seems to indicate she may not officially be back in Starfleet yet after her “fall from grace.” For more on how this fits together, check out our article on everything we think we know about Burnham.
