Behold, the new teaser for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has dropped starring Celia Rose Gooding.

Paramount shared the post on social media and wrote: "Cadet Uhura's future is hailing. #StarTrek#StrangeNewWorlds premieres May 5 on @ParamountPlus!"

Gooding said previously about the iconic role, played in the movie series by Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldaña and Nichelle Nichols on the OG Star Trek series: "I am thrilled and honoured to say that I will be playing Cadet Nyota Uhura.

"I am so excited to be stepping into this legacy."

The ten-episode series is set to premiere on May 5 and is based on the the years between Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: The Original Series, before Kirk boarded the USS Enterprise.
