Live long and prosper: Sonequa Martin-Green flashed the Vulcan sign at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday where CBS' Star Trek: Discovery bowed a new trailer
They were joined on the panel by actors Doug Jones, James Frain and Mary Wiseman along with creator Alex Kurtzman, director Akiva Goldsman, showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg, plus co-executive producer Heather Kadin.
Sonequa seemed to be having a particularly good time, roaring with laughter at one point and flashing the Vulcan hand sign that every fan will know means 'Live long and prosper.'
Set roughly 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek, the action revolves around Sonequa as First Officer Michael Burnham (referred to as Number One) with Jason as Captain Lorca aboard the USS Discovery.
The trailer shows the resurgent Klingons re-uniting the 24 great houses, leading to a cold war with the United Federation Of Planets.

Ever more disturbing fiery scenes follow as a voice over intones: 'All life is born from chaos, the world doesn't always adhere to logic. Sometimes down is up and sometimes when you're lost you're found.'
And it ends with Lorca asking his Number One: 'You helped start a war, don't you want to help me end it?'
Although this is an all new storyline that runs parallel with the rebooted film franchise, fans will recognize one character from the 1966 Star Trek - Harry Mudd.

Mudd, then played by Roger C. Carmel, was a charismatic con man who had repeated run-ins with the crew of the Enterprise.
Rainn Wilson takes on the role of the interstellar rogue.
The first episode will air on CBS on September 24 with all future episodes premiering on Sunday nights on CBS All Access, the network’s streaming service.
