Yes, this photo totally inspires me to sign up for your pay service to see this instead of just pirating it.

Looks like their first Discovery was of the Planet of Asian People.

Good thing those women are all covered up. We wouldn't want any outrageous titillation.

Until I read the headline I thought it was a promo shot for something Star Wars. For this reason alone I don't understand how they let this through.

Do they really think that people will sign up for their crappy service just because of this one title, with that crappy trailer?

Just watched the new trailer. It's watchable if you mute it and close your eyes. You're going to have to close your eyes because there's so much fucking lens flare.

If the title of the story hadn't been "Photo of Star Trek" that photo could be of anything.

I think "dinosaurs" before I think "Star Trek". Maybe that's closer anyway because making this show the flagship of their online pay service is the fastest way to make both the series and the service go extinct quick, fast, and in a hurry.

Especially if this is the best they can release for the first official photo.

Is the target demographic Asian women? Or men that like Asian women? I'm really confused there isn't even a star treck logo anywhere in the photo. I would have thought this was either a new star wars or a dune remake. Terrible promo shot

Hey, how could anyone not like (or at least respect) Michelle Yeoh? She's been (quite literally) kicking ass for more than 30 years now!

Of course, like most people, I immediately assumed this was Star Wars, especially after Rogue One featured Donnie Yen. However, that would have made sales of Disney action figures awkward after the inevitable Star Wars/Guardians of the Galaxy cross-over.
