This is the first official trailer for Star Trek: Discovery and I'm super excited for this new series.

This is glorious. I can't even tell anymore how often I looped this video. On a sadder note: I still haven't had the time to go and watch Star Trek Beyond 😔
Thanks to Delilah S. Dawson for linking to this.
This one really made me laugh out loud.

I have to say that up until now I wasn't particularly looking forward to new Star Trek movie. Even though I loved the previous two films, the first trailer for this next chapter of the Star Trek saga looked too much like The Fast and the Furious and not enough like Star Trek.
I realise that the new movies are more heavily focussed on action and entertainment—and I'm all for that—but it'd be sad to see the legacy of what made Star Trek such an amazing universe be ignored to create another action flick.
This second trailer gives me hope because we see a few glimpses of the character development the movie might bring with it, some manner of violent commentary about the Federation's expansion, and a plot that appears less straight-forward than the first trailer made it seem.
Take a look for yourself.
Neil deGrasse Tyson gives us the definitive answer:
I can't say I disagree with him.
