Apart from that, martial arts legend Michelle Yeoh as well as Sonequa Martin-Green will also play a role in the TV series.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman's Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller's Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment.
It's the first Star Trek in 16 years, and will consist of 15 episodes.
To this point, details had been scarce about the latest addition to the Star Trek universe.

It is this week that the American channels unveil the new series that they will broadcast during the year. It being placed off the network's primetime schedule and on CBS All Access, the network's streaming offering, was seen as further proof that the show was not being treated with the sort of care befitting one of the iconic science fiction series of all time.
There are also scenes on the bridge of the Discovery as the ship engages the Klingons.
As the crew comes across an unknown object at the edge of Federation space, Martin-Green and Yeoh must decide what to do when they come into contact with Klingons.
The lens flare and kinetic camera angle in the trailer seem inspired by J.J. Abram's "Star Trek" movies that are some of my favorite versions of the franchise.
In Star Trek: Enterprise, Burnham is a human that was raised by Vulcans and is referred to as 'Number One, ' like Commander William Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Though there isn't a set date of the release date, the show is definitely on it's way to Netflix this coming fall.
