CBS has unveiled the first promo for Hannibal producer Bryan Fuller’s new Star Trek show slated for release on CBS’ streaming platform, All Access.

Not only does the promo seem to confirm an early Birth.Movies.Death scoop suggesting the show will be an anthology (“New Crews” plural), it also reveals the title.

Believe it or not…

Hold your breath…

Here it comes…

The title of the new Star Trek TV show will be… Star Trek. If it does indeed turn out to be a season-by-season anthology perhaps we’ll also see a subtitle somewhere along the way, like with American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Here’s the promo:

Devin Faraci of Birth.Movies.Death must have some pretty good sources inside the production, since his latest leak actually gets at the meat of what’s to come. It seems that the first season of Star Trek (got to get used to not calling it the more conjectural “that new CBS Star Trek show”) will feature the Mirror Universe.

The Mirror Universe first appeared in The Original Series episode “Mirror, Mirror,” when a transporter accident (the one device more finicky than a holosuite) beamed Captain Kirk, Bones, Scotty and Uhura to the parallel dimension where the Federation is an evil empire and our beloved crew a band of scheming murderers.

The Mirror Universe would reappear in both Star Trek: Enterprise and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the latter of which dealt with the political aftermath of Kirk’s original incursion.

The episode is also the source of the “evil twin has a goatee” bit seen on South Park, Knight Rider, Futurama and Community, though contrary to popular conception, only evil Spock sported a goatee in the original episode.

With the new Star Trek rumored to take place in the tenuous early years of peace between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire (after the signing of the Khitomer Accords) the Mirror Universe sounds like just the thing to play complete havoc throughout the Alpha Quadrant.
