Is an episode of the highly anticipated new season of British sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror going to pay tribute to Star Trek? From the looks of this exclusive still released to The Straits Times by American streaming giant Netflix, the episode titled USS Callister appears to feature crew with Trekkie-like uniforms, on board a spaceship, no less. Directed by Toby Haynes, the episode stars Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, seated), Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother, in blue dress), Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, third from right) and Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum, in red dress), among others. It is one of six episodes in Season 4 of the acclaimed series, which will be released on Netflix in the months to come. Go to netflix.com/blackmirror for details.
