HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/9/24 – “Brian Fuller was the visionary behind this iteration of Star Trek,” says Star Trek Discovery star Sonequa Martin-Green. “And one of those things was the redesign of the Klingons. They’re haunting, hauntingly beautiful I think. So this show we’re going boldly. It’s new worlds, new missions…a lot of it is about discovery.”

 

Martin-Green says the moment she found out she was cast for Star Trek was a “whirlwind of a moment.”

“We were in Buenos Aires at the time,” says Martin-Green. “I had already finished up on Walking Dead [season 5], so it was very divine. One door closed and another opened. Thank you, Lord…. I think about the legacy of Star Trek itself, and how the universality of it is the spirit of it, and how we’re continuing with that. Not even just with me [as the first African-American Star Trek captain], we also have the first Asian female captain. We also have the first female captain with a female first officer. We have a very positive relationship.”

Star Trek: Discovery follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms. One Starfleet officer must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series features a new ship, new characters while sticking with the original ideology of the Star Trek franchise.

Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment.
