An upcoming episode of the anthology series Black Mirror is clearly inspired by Star Trek. It’s an intriguing idea, but unfortunately if you’re looking for clues about what “USS Callister” will actually be about, Netflix‘s recently released trailer for the episode doesn’t contain too many clues. Even the episode’s plot description is pretty short and vague:
“Join Captain Daly and his trusty crew as they explore the galaxy and the dangers of unknown alien planets.”
This being Black Mirror, you can bet that “USS Callister” will employ some manner of horrifying twist on the basic Star Trek premise, probably involving a sinister connotation for Jesse Plemons’ character Captain Daly. But beyond that, you’ll just have to be patient and wait, since the fourth season of Black Mirror doesn’t even have a release date as of yet.
Anyway, you can watch the trailer for “USS Callister” below, and stay tuned to Netflix for more release information on Black Mirror season four as it arrives.
