Star Trek Discovery Season 3 Trailer

It's only a minute of footage from the upcoming season debuting on CBS All Access next year, but it's a thrilling glimpse at an unknown future. The Federation flag only has six stars on it for crying out loud.

Time jumping makes everything go crazy!

Here's the official synopsis for the new season of Star Trek Discovery:

After making the jump in the second season finale, season three of Star Trek: Discovery finds the U.S.S.

Discovery crew, along with the help of some new friends, must together fight to regain a hopeful future.
