Tribbles are coming to Discovery

Another facet of the show was teased by executive producer Alex Kurtzman, where he confirmed that everybody’s favorite balls of fur – the Tribbles – will make an appearance in Discovery. However, it’s unknown where or when they will appear. Hopefully, they will keep their libidos in check this time.

Tribbles were first featured in the classic Star Trek episode “The Trouble with Tribbles,” then again in The Animated Series episode “More Tribbles, More Troubles,” and then again in the Deep Space Nine episode “Trials and Tribble-ations.” They also made cameo appearances in four Star Trek films and in the Enterprise episode “The Breach.”

Burnham is Spock’s adopted sister

The cast and creatives of Star Trek: Disocvery made a major announcement at today’s Comic-Con International: San Diego panel.

At the panel, it was revealed that series lead Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green) is the half-sister of Mr. Spock from Star Trek: The Original series.

Burnham is the entirely human daughter of Amanda Grayson, Spock’s human mother. She was raised on Vulcan by Grayson and Spock’s father, Sarek, who acted as a surrogate father to Burnham after her birth-father died.

Fans may wonder why Spock never mentioned a sister before, and executive producer Alex Kurtzman is aware of this and says there’s a reason for it. “We’re aware. You’ll see where it’s going, but we are staying consistent with canon.”
