Zachary Quinto as Spock and Anton Yelchin as Chekov beam in to see all the advanced tech details. The other Trek connected commercial was the teaser for the re-launch of Carl Sagan’s beloved edutainment series Cosmos on Fox. Trek alumni Brannon Braga along with Seth MacFarlane are producers, with astrophysicist, and pretty cool guy who makes science fun and interesting, Neil deGrasse Tyson as host.
