Cape Town - Star Trek makes its big return to television later this year. 

The popular series is one of many getting the reboot treatment.

CBS has finally released a trailer for Star Trek: Discovery.

Set roughly ten years before the events of the original Star Trek, the series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they discover new worlds and civilizations, while exploring the franchise's signature contemporary themes.

The storyline revolves around "an incident and an event in Star Trek history that's been talked about but never been explored".

It stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Michelle Yeoh and Anthony Rapp.

The 15 episode series will roll out with one episode per week on the streaming service CBS All Access in America, and on Netflix in the rest of the world.
