Charlie Brooker’s dystopian sci-fi anthology series, Black Mirror, has served up an intriguing Star Trek homage. Fans have anticipated the trailer for Black Mirror season 4’s ‘U.S.S. Callister’ episode for months; ever since a stack of eye-catching first look images were released back in September. These promising promo pictures hint at a dark subversion of Gene Roddenberry’s idealistic Star Trek vision.

As the release of Black Mirror season 4 looms ominously on the horizon, fans have been treated to numerous weird and wonderful trailers. As well as presenting his own twisted take on Star Trek, Brooker’s fourth season will also offer fans a Black Mirror episode about online dating and one about the dangers of over-parenting. This promises to be another mind-bending season of highly eerie episodes, with ‘U.S.S. Callister’ being a particularly intriguing proposition.
