This image also gives us our first hint at the bridge of the Discovery, as the ship shown in the series' first trailer was not that of the Discovery but of a different ship that factors into the first episode.
Pick up this week's issue of EW for more Star Trek: Discovery scoop. The trailer also put a heavy emphasis on Michelle Yeoh's Captain Philippa Georgiou of the USS Shenzhou. Instead, the series will follow First Officer Burnham as the main protagonist. After losing showrunner/series co-creator Bryan Fuller and enduring multiple production delays, Star Trek fans are understandably a bit nervous about the first TV venture back into the final frontier since Enterprise was cancelled, back in 2005. Though I am quite stoked for another Star Trek series nonetheless.
The series boasts a cast of genre franchise veterans, including "The Mummy's" Michelle Yeoh, "Harry Potter's" Jason Isaacs, "Hellboy's" Doug Jones, "The Office's" Rainn Wilson and "The Walking Dead" and "Once Upon a Time" alum Sonequa Martin-Green. The series will air on CBS All Access in the US and be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.
Star Trek: Discovery premieres on CBS on September 24, with the remaining episodes of the first season premiering exclusively on the CBS All Access app.
Anthony Rapp stars as Lt. Stamets, a Starfleet officer aboard the Starship Discovery who is an expert in fungus - otherwise known as an astromycologist.
