Beam up our breakdown of the ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ season 4 and ‘Lower Decks’ season 2 teaser trailers

None of us are,” Michael Burnham says over a montage of debris and very serious looking faces.

Without a doubt the most significant change is the uniforms; it looks like the tunic style has been retained, although with a slightly better cut, from what we saw at the end of the Season 3 finale “That Hope is You — part II.” The color scheme has also been tweaked and the bland blue-steel grey, that was used for both the trousers and tunic has been replaced by the Starfleet department color, for the tunic, with a black stripe that nicely complements the new black trousers.

“Federation or non-Federation, this anomaly threatens us equally,” a Cardassian woman says, adding her own anxiety to the rapidly rising levels of alarm.

In an attempt to break the captain, Madred shines four, bright lights at Picard and tries to convince him to doubt his own mind and acknowledge there are falsely five instead.
