Watch “Star Trek: Discovery | Teaser [HD] | Netflix” on YouTube

When I first heard about this series I was doubtful buy the story and production value look good.

Interesting to have a lead character not be the captain, I’m not sure where they’re going with the whole reverse-Spock thing but it looks interesting.

If it comes to Netflix I’ll definitely be giving it a watch, I wonder if it will succeed in appealing to new fans and Trekkies alike

A race introduced in The Next Generation but featured prominently in Deep Space Nine this Alien race was mercantile to its core, even down to their religion. Their personal and species-wide goal was solely the pursuit of profit.
