Netflix has unveiled the trailer for USS Callister, a Star Trek-esque episode from Black Mirror season 4.
Starring Jesse Plemons, Jimmi Simpson, Cristin Milioti, and Michaela Coel, the episode follows the crew of the titular spaceship as they explore the galaxy. At least, that’s what the basic synopsis and quick trailer below want us to think. The old-school campiness is fun and we’re digging the Galaxy Quest vibes, but you can bet there’s a pitch-black twist around the corner. Plemmons’ Captain Daly is mighty suspicious.
The episode is directed by Toby Haynes, whose credits include episodes of Doctor Who and an episode of Sherlock. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker wrote the screenplay alongside William Bridges, who also co-wrote season 3’s Shut Up and Dance episode.
Join Captain Daly and his trusty crew as they explore the galaxy and the dangers of unknown alien planets.
