The promo for the CBS All Access series features the lead character First Officer Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green)

Here's what the voiceover in the promo says:

The Starfleet may be peaceful, but Burnham will play an important role in starting a war with the Klingon Empire that will serve as the plot for Star Trek: Discovery's first season. It's exciting that the new Star Trek show will tell one over-arching story throughout the season instead of the traditional serialized structure.

Set 10 years prior to the five-year mission of the Enterprise in Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: Discovery follows the adventures of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship, new characters, and new missions while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

Star Trek: Discovery is set to premiere on CBS on September 24.
