It’s finally here! After the announcement in 2016, and the start date of January 2017 coming and going — the first look at Star Trek Discovery has arrived.
Now the first shot is a little jarring. I wasn’t sure if I was looking at new Trek, or old footage from Star Wars The Force Awakens.
Also notable, is that much of the imagery shown is largely reminiscent of the Kelvin Universe Star Trek movie reboots.
Especially the new look Klingons!
Again, it’s an early look, so any judgement will be reserved. Plus, any new Star Trek is welcome.
Starring: Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham, the First officer of the USS Discovery; Michelle Yeoh as Philippa Georgiou, Captain of the Shenzhou; Jason Isaacs as Lorca, Captain of the Discovery and James Frain as Sarek — Spock‘s father.
The new series is coming this Fall to CBS All-Access, a subscription based streaming site.
Martin-Green joins the Trek franchise, leaving behind the highly popular The Walking Dead.
Yeoh is a legend in her own right, having appeared in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies.
Issacs was the villanious Malfoy in the Harry Potter series.
Frain was previously seen on Gotham.
