Spock is back. It’s been nearly three decades since the beloved character appeared on television, and back then it was still Leonard Nimoy, in the role he originated. But now CBS All Access has released a new trailer, offering a first look at actor Ethan Peck as the Enterprise‘s young science officer.
In the footage, Spock and his adoptive sister Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) share a vision of an entity, dubbed the “red angel,” tearing across the universe with questionable intentions. The young Vulcan joins the Discovery and Enterprise in search of this mysterious being.
In its first season, Discovery introduced series protagonist Burnham as an orphaned human raised on Vulcan by Spock’s parents, Sarek and Amanda Grayson, played by James Frain and Mia Kirshner. In a surprise twist, the U.S.S. Enterprise, then under the command of Christopher Pike, appeared in the season finale, teeing up an appearance by Spock.
Returning Thursday, Jan. 17, on CBS All Access, Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, Mary Chieffo, Anson Mount, Ethan Peck and Michelle Yeoh.
