Star Trek Trailer #4

Home/I SHOW YOU SEE/Star Trek Trailer #4

Tensions arise in the Alpha Quadrant. The Dominion is trying to divide the factions to destabilize the region and take over. Klingons against Cardassians, Federations against Klingons – the more they fight amongst themselves, the weaker they get against the Dominion.

Transitions are the key element in this trailer to form a more cohesive mini story arc
