CBS’ new Star Trek television series, Star Trek Discovery, has had its share of problems getting to the small screen. It’s been delayed twice and saw its showrunner depart, but there are positive signs of progress; Star Trek Discovery is now in production, according to a new teaser released by CBS today.

Today’s sneak peek offers a few enticing details, notably a glimpse at Discovery’s Starfleet uniforms, another look at the USS Discovery and what appear to be alien — possibly Klingon — costumes. There’s also a closing shot of the new captain’s chair, though it’s not clear who will actually occupy that set yet. You’ll also get a look at the revised Star Trek: Discovery logo, which looks a bit cleaner than what we saw last year.

Star Trek: Discovery will star Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead) as the lieutenant commander of the Discovery. Martin-Green will be joined by Michelle Yeoh, who plays Georgiou, the captain of the USS Shenzhou; Doug Jones as science officer Saru; Anthony Rapp as science officer Stamets; and James Frain as Vulcan astrophysicist Sarek.

Star Trek: Discovery is coming to streaming service CBS All Access, though the show does not have a premiere date.
