Read what the critics have to say:

"Explosions, Vulcans, a Klingon Empire that’s been in disarray for generations, and a super slick style that makes this look like a big budget Star Trek movie instead of a TV series, this trailer has us totally ready to head out to the final frontier once more, to the earliest days of the Federation." —Michael Walsh, Nerdist

"The Official Trailer for Star Trek: Discovery Hints at an Impressive, Ambitious Reboot" —David Canfield, Vulture

"Martin-Green, who plays the show's lead, First Officer Michael Burnham, proved she was cut out for everything Starfleet represents..." —Tracy Brown, LA Times

"Look, I've never considered myself a fan of the Star Trek franchise, but even I watched the new Star Trek: Discovery trailer and was impressed." —Tim Surette, TV Guide

"The new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, dropped at Comic-Con in San Diego, is out of this world." —Eliana Dockterman, TIME

"The new official trailer, which debuted at Comic-Con on Saturday, presents a modernized Star Trek that appears ambitious in scope, impressive in design, and plenty fascinating in its many revisions and updates. Skeptics can take note." —David Canfield, Vulture

"Star Trek: Discovery unveiled stellar new trailer at Comic-Con." —Joe Otterson, Variety 

"Star Trek: Discovery's incredible Comic-Con trailer shows a cold war with the Klingons." —The Verge

"Despite any fears that Trekkies wouldn't embrace the new crew, the new trailer that debuted in Ballroom 20 went over well (to a huge, positive reaction)." —Jean Bentley, The Hollywood Reporter

"...Rainn Wilson’s space pirate/con artist Harry Mudd already looks like he could be one of the most fun characters ever to join the Star Trek universe." —Michael Walsh, Nerdist 

"The cast and creators of Star Trek: Discovery came armed with plenty of treats for fans who made it out to the show's spotlight presentation on Saturday at Comic-Con." —Tracy Brown, LA Times

"It looks like First Officer Michael Burnham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green, will really be taken through the ringer – she’s even accused of 'help[ing] to start a war' – and Martin-Green has the perfect expressiveness and sincerity to be the viewer’s lens into this world. I’d definitely watch this woman run through the universe." —Marykate Jasper, The Mary Sue
