The first teaser trailer of the official TV reboot of Star Trek has been released by CBS that provides a first look at the logo for the new series. Shown during the studio's upfront presentation for advertisers at the Carnegie Hall in New York City, the trailer introduces fans to the first elements of the "new adventure".
The available synopsis for the new Star Trek TV series reads as follows:
"The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966."
Produced by CBS Television Studios, release of the new trailer marks the return of the successful franchise to the small screen in 2017.
Although, the network hasn't released much details related to the plot of the new CBS series that has Bryan Fuller on board as showrunner and executive producer, the first look promises a lot of "new" elements to fans. As the video pans through the galaxy of planets and stars, the caption reads, "new crews, new villains, new heroes, new world" hinting at the upcoming adventure in the new Star Trek show. Apart from Fuller, Alex Kutzman and Nicholas Meyer will also be co-producing the show.
Since Star Trek, the original show is set to celebrate its golden jubilee in 2016, CBS Television Studios President, David Stapf asserted, "There is no better time to give Star Trek fans a new series than on the heels of the original show's 50th anniversary celebration."
A special preview of the premiere episode of the new Star Trek series will be broadcast on CBS Television Network in the US, and the subsequent first-run episodes will be available exclusively on CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service. The series will also be available on television stations and platforms in other countries around the world.
