Latest ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Promo Explores “Where No One Has Gone Before” [UPDATED w/ Analysis]

This morning CBS released another web promo on Twitter. Titled “Fortune Favors the Bold,” this one emphasizes exploration and has a good amount of new footage in it so it is worth a watch.

NOTE: Video is region-locked to USA only. Click here for video on Instagram which is unlocked.

UPDATE: Analysis of new shots and dialog

The TrekMovie team have combed through the new promo and identified 13 new shots not seen in previous trailers or promos, along with some new dialog.

Michael Burnham (Sonequa-Martin Green) emerges from U.S.S. Shenzhou on EV suit

Wider shot of the Burnham outside the Shenzhou as we hear her activate the suit’s communicator (which sounds very much like Star Trek: The Next Generation communicator chirp)

Dialog: “This is commander Burnham, commencing reconnaissance mission.”

Close-up of Burnham as we hear suit’s computer countdown: “Thruster ignition in 3, 2, 1…”

Lt. Saru (Doug Jones) and Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) on bridge of U.S.S. Discovery. Voiceover: “You are explorers…you chose to go where no one has gone before.”

Lorca speaking to another Starfleet captain says “Fortune favors the bold.” (Note: hair seems to match officer seen in bridge shot from earlier in trailer and not Capt. Georgiou)
