The first look at Star Trek: Discovery season four promises the series’ most epic journey yet. Sonequa Martin-Green offered up a tease during First Contact Day 2021, a Paramount+ virtual event featuring panels and live streams for all things Star Trek.
In the tease you can see below, the USS Discovery crew is facing off against a gravitational anomaly that’s five light years wide. We also see Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) taking the captain’s chair in a new red uniform. She warns the crew of the threat, though, giving a grim tease of the crew’s upcoming battle. “We are facing something we don’t understand, something that could tear us all apart,” says Burnham.
Along with Martin-Green, series regulars Doug Jones as Saru, Anthony Rapp as Stamets, Mary Wiseman as Tilly, Emily Coutts as Keyla Detmer, and Wilson Cruz as Dr. Culber will return. Star Trek: Discovery season three newcomers David Ajala, Blu del Barrio, Ian Alexander, and Oded Fehr will also be returning.

Season four finds Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery facing a threat unlike any they’ve ever encountered. With Federation and non-Federation worlds alike feeling the impact, they must confront the unknown and work together to ensure a hopeful future for all.
Star Trek: Discovery is coming late 2021, exclusively on Paramount+.
