Sonequa Martin-Green flashes Vulcan peace sign as cast of new series Star Trek: Discovery debut an action-packed trailer at Comic-Con

Boldly going! Sonequa Martin-Green flashes Vulcan peace sign as cast of new series Star Trek: Discovery debut an action-packed trailer at Comic-Con

It's an iconic space saga that predates 1977's Star Wars by 11 years.
And on Saturday, Sonequa Martin-Green and Jason Isaac were among key cast of CBS' Star Trek: Discovery, the latest TV iteration in the saga, at Comic-Con in the San Diego Convention Center.
CBS debuted an action-packed two minute and 39 second trailer to the delight of the crowd.

They were joined on the panel by actors Doug Jones, James Frain and Mary Wiseman along with creator Alex Kurtzman, director Akiva Goldsman, showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg, plus co-executive producer Heather Kadin.
Sonequa seemed to be having a particularly good time, roaring with laughter at one point and flashing the Vulcan hand sign that every fan will know means 'Live long and prosper.'
Set roughly 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek, the action revolves around Sonequa as First Officer Michael Burnham (referred to as Number One) with Jason as Captain Lorca aboard the USS Discovery.
The trailer shows the resurgent Klingons re-uniting the 24 great houses, leading to a cold war with the United Federation Of Planets.

Ever more disturbing fiery scenes follow as a voice over intones: 'All life is born from chaos, the world doesn't always adhere to logic. Sometimes down is up and sometimes when you're lost you're found.'
And it ends with Lorca asking his Number One: 'You helped start a war, don't you want to help me end it?'
Although this is an all new storyline that runs parallel with the rebooted film franchise, fans will recognize one character from the 1966 Star Trek - Harry Mudd.

Braless Nicole Scherzinger turns up the heat in a plunging skintight turquoise gown at X Factor auditions

Braless Nicole Scherzinger turns up the heat in a plunging skintight turquoise gown as she makes glamorous arrival at X Factor auditions

In the years since she rose to fame as a member of the Pussycat Dolls, Nicole Scherzinger has continued to prove why she was an immediate fan favourite.
And the stunning singer stayed true to form on Friday evening, when she stepped out in fine style for the Boot Camp stages of The X Factor in London.
The 39-year-old singer wowed as she arrived in a figure-hugging, deeply plunging turquoise gown, under which she opted to go braless.

Her eye-catching choice of gown boasted a ruffled raised collar and a backless feature, adding a dramatic touch to her ravishing look.
Standing tall in a pair of colourful butterfly-themed strappy heels, she accessorised with a long gold necklace, a variety of rings and a thick statement bracelet.
Her lustrous raven tresses were styled in voluminous waves, which fell freely past her shoulders, while her natural beauty was highlighted with bubblegum pink lipstick.

Nicole, who was recently pictured flaunting her incredible bikini body during a sun-soaked getaway with boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov, set pulses racing earlier on Friday when she shared a busty selfie on Instagram.
Spicing up a session in hair and make-up, the singer oozed sex appeal as she posed up a storm in a plunging yellow top.
The racy number featured a provocative zip detail that was partially unfastened to flash a glimpse of her ample assets.

Drawing yet more attention to her decolletage, the star donned a plethora of necklaces that were sure to catch the eye.
Nicole exuded glamour in the image, which saw her flanked by a team of hairstylists and make-up artists. 
'London turn up,' the beauty captioned the sizzling shot.
The snap followed a less glamorous post shared on the star's Instagram account last weekend, which saw her ride the Stealth roller coaster at Thorpe Park.
Joined by X Factor co-star Dermot O'Leary, the pair were left feeling rather queasy on Sunday, as they attempted to channel their inner thrill-seeker while 'enjoying' an outing at Thorpe Park.
Landing front row seats on the park's notorious Stealth roller-coaster, the duo were pictured preparing to be catapulted into the air together, but didn't appear to be feeling so fresh.

Singer Nicole, 39, had luckily captured the moment - much to the amusement of fans - of herself and Dermot, 44, trying to steady their nerves and calm themselves down as the ride got ready to launch. 
And it seems they had reason to be feeling slightly jelly-legged, as Stealth is the theme park's tallest ride, reaching up to 205ft and accelerating from 0-80mph in just under two seconds.
She shared a series of snaps to Instagram with her 3.2million followers, poking fun at the uneasiness she and Dermot both felt. As they sat clutching onto their harness and breathing out, in an attempt to prevent themselves from breaking down, Nicole joked: 'Getting ready for take off! Don't forget to breath! 3, 2, 1 ...'

The following photos showed the former Pussycat Doll appearing to ease into the ride, as she managed to flash a smile before throwing her arms up into the air with excitement. 
TV presenter Dermot, on the other hand, didn't seem so convinced.
He awkwardly pointed at Nicole, as she beamed from ear-to-ear, and half-heartedly raised his arms above his head while grimacing towards the camera. 
Being propelled around a daring track wasn't the only moment that would have had Nicole's heart racing, however, as during their trip to Thorpe Park, Simon Cowell had reportedly crashed a golf buggy into a gift shop.

He had been joined by Nicole and their fellow judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne and according to The Sun, misjudged a corner while hunting down an ice cream. 
A source told the newspaper: 'Simon was in a wild mood and decided to go off in search of ice cream sandwiches for him and the judges. He pinched a golf buggy from where they were filming and off he went. 
'As he got close to the park’s ghost train he tried to drive the cart into a shop but completely underestimated the width of the door and clattered into some metal detectors.
Blame Scherzy: Dermot appeared to point an accusatory finger at his co-star, as he battled with his nerves while sat in the front seats of the white-knuckle ride

'There was a brief period of concern that the judges could have been hurt, but they were soon on their way again. Simon had been given free reign of the park after it was closed to the general public. He was acting like a big, mischievous kid.'
A source also told MailOnline that the vehicular mishap resulted in a 'small prang' on the low speed vehicle.
On Sunday night, former Pussycat Doll Nicole took to Instagram to share a brief video of the foursome riding in a golf cart as Simon took control of the wheel.
