    No, when you slow down the trailer and look at it slide by slide, you'll see it is Culber. At the end you see a worried Stamets.

    I don't immediately recognize the ships shown to be attacking Earth. Does anyone? Is the second planet Vulcan being destroyed by red matter or just a different shot of Earth? The starting point of the explosion does not appear to line up with the explosion in the moon shot.

    The ships attacking Earth appear to be similar in design to the probe that came through the temporal anomaly

    What do the projectiles fly past? There are blurry grey shapes at the lower edge of the frame - a defensive formation of some sort, helpless for reason X to stop the ships?

    I'm sort of disappointed they didn't give the Talosians a full head of hair.

    For a moment I was thinking they were the Kaylon invasion fleet from last week. And a different show altogether, but masses of identical, rounded grey ships can do that to you. ;)

    So... they've gone back to the "time war" well after Star Trek: Enterprise handled the subject matter so well.

    Also, why have they made their rebooted Talosians like like something from the Berman era? No more sodding vertical face ridges, please.

    Also note the homage Into Darkness shot of the S31 ship coming up on Discovery at warp.

    Really interested in the 'spider-like monster' coming out of the ground to attack young Michael... These are the kind of things we only saw in TAS (and the JJ Movies)..!

    Better than just humans with big brains.
    i think it’s too early to assume that.

    The least human(oid) the better, to match the fact they can't figure out how a human body is supposed to work. Talosians should be crab people, and their appearance here and elsewhere just illusions to mess with others.

    A chance for me to be a pedantic Trekkie! Yay!

    "Temporal Cold War", dear. * coughs and readjusts monocle *

    Sorry not sorry for the double post. I'm too lazy to edit that right now. I'll try to not do it again, though.

    The TCW occurred across time. I wouldn't mind a brief shout out, especially since the 28th century is a front in the War. Otherwise, though, whatever the Red Angel and his or her cronies are doing would be best unrelated. It would kinda match to have the 28th century be a sort of "temporal Wild West" era, where everyone gets easier time travel and runs rampant, before the strict authoritarian law of the 29th century bears down on them, and eventually time travel is treated more responsibly and with care by the 31st century.

    I have a feeling that with all the wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff going on, some of these flashes are from the future. We might be some fun rebooted seconds of TOS episodes.

    Disagree. I think there were better ways they could have 25%'d the Talosians without making them as Berman as possible.

    It was only a matter of time.
    There's a lot of time. Doesn't have to be the same time conflict, or even the same players. I did like the callback to ID.
