    This won't seem to play for me. I assume maybe because I'm in the UK.

    Anyone got a link to a version that'll run internationally?

    The issue doesn't seem to be with the video linked in the TrekToday article being region blocked, but rather the fact that it has already been deleted from YouTube.

    Are you able to watch the video inside the original tweet? https://twitter.com/startrekcbs/status/826490260565565440

    That video works. The Youtube video doesn't.

    You can see the Discovery in the video. It doesn't seem they changed the design much. And I guess the alien uniforms are for the Klingons? They look martially. And we see a bit of a blue Starfleet uniform, which has a collar and some gold linings. The delta symbol on the uniform has also this crease like the logo has.

    There is a version I found without the voice over and text overlays.

    There are two Starfleet vessels visible here. One is the old concept art for Discovery, and the other is a CG wireframe of what looks like some variety of NX-like "Enterprise" ship. Could this be an updated design of Discovery?

    The video has definitely got me more excited for the show. Nothing like actually seeing real sets being built and uniforms and such to make it real.

    Stuff just got real. :)

    Interesting sets - I believe we see TWO bridge sets here. There's one behind the clapper, and a second one as a blueprint. The blueprint one is interesting, because it looks pretty Klingon-esque to me, aping Kruge's BoP from Star Trek III, having a central seat ringed by outward facing stations. However, this set has some length of hallway behind the single door, suggesting it's more of a permanent set and one which will allow the camera to follow actors as they enter and exit the bridge. Very interesting.

    The previously-seen Discovery design looks set. The Centaur-like one... USS Shenzhou? Another ship?

    And that command chair we saw months ago is, in fact, the one. Awesome. And uncomfortable looking. :)

    It's important to remember Discovery is supposed to focus on two Starfleet ships. That other ship could very well be the ship Michelle Yeoh's character is captain of.

    And yeah, that other ship does kind of resemble the NX class, but with the nacelles beneath it, which gives it a stronger resemblance to the Akira class.

    Given it's Prime Universe and so close to The Cage I'm not sure how I feel about the lack of design lineage. This feels a bit more like something out of the 24th Century.

    Not exactly a deal breaker, and one that can be explained away, but interesting nonetheless.

    Seeing the blueprint of the bridge makes me hope that we'll get something in book form like the good ole days. Love ship blueprints.

    The video really has me excited. Like that blue uniform too. I know there are haters out there that disloke the delta shield but we don't know when Starfleet went to different insignia for different ships. We have no idea of what uniforms looked like between Enterprise & TOS, maybe they all used the same delta shield untill right before Kirk was promoted to captain.

    About the uniform - is the collar on both sides or only the left? Can't see the other half.

    Wow I really like those uniforms now that I can see a still photo. Definitely looks to my eye a bit of a call back to Enterprise with both the uniforms & ship design. Okay with that. Seriously pumped now want to see a full crew shot with the crew, makeup, the bridge. Very exciting!

    I wonder if John Eaves designed that wireframe ship, it looks like his aesthetic.
