Transporter Room first look….

More leaks from Discovery, first looks at the new transporter room….

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY

Above we see Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) preparing to beam down to … somewhere.

You’ll notice they’re wearing body armor (another interesting addition) and have old school The Original Series phasers at the ready. In the foreground on the left is the back of Lt. Saru (Doug Jones) a new form of alien in the Trek universe who plays a key role.

This particular transporter bay is aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou and it’s unlike any that Trek fans have ever seen before. So if you love this new design, great, it’s in the show. If you don’t, hold that thought, because the transporter bay in the U.S.S. Discovery is very different from this one (and has not yet been seen).

We have two close ups here, one shows ‘Combat uniform’ and the second shows the new gun…

 

CBS release new Discovery trailer

After months and months of waiting, CBS finally released the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery yesterday and one aspect stood out above all the rest, the Klingon’s new look.

One other interesting aspect about the ancient group of Klingons that should be acknowledged is how religious they were. In the trailer, it seems like the Klingons have gathered together for a religious ceremony.

 

Georgiou is the captain of the Starship U.S.S Shenzhou. Is that the Shenzou we see coming through the clouds? Georgiou tells Burnham “It’s hard to imagine you’ve served under me for seven years,” as they trek across a desert planet.

USS Shenzhou

I think these two clips are from the first two episodes of Discovery, where the U.S.S Shenzhou finds a mysterious object floating in space. Inside this ship they discovery a race of Klingons which has been asleep for a long time only to be awakened when Burnham boards the ship.

We also get some shots of the inside of the U.S.S Shenzhou and her crew.


These new starfleet uniforms look great and the U.S.S Shenzhou looks very big from inside, also the bridge looks like its on the bottom of the ship which is very unusual.

Sarek also makes appearance in the video clip, and has some words of wisdom for Burnham

“Great unifies are few and far between, but they do come. Often such leaders will need a profound cause for their followers to rally around,”

If Sarek and Burnham are BFFs, this presents some interesting questions about her character…  Was Burnham raised on Vulcan? Because that what it looks like from the trailer and that is… pretty awesome.


We also get to see the new communicator which Starfleet use and looks very much like a flip phone.

I have watched these two clips several times and i must admit I am looking forward to Discovery when it finally comes out.

CBS have also added three more episodes to Discovery, it was originally going to have 12 episodes but this has now been changed to 15.

Michelle Yeoh Reportedly Cast as Captain Han Bo of the U.S.S. Shenzhou in “Star Trek: Discovery”

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon‘s Michelle Yeoh is heading into the final frontier with Star Trek: Discovery. Sources confirm that the upcoming CBS All Access iteration will see Yeoh playing a Starfleet Captain ( U.S.S Shenzhou ).

Michelle Yeoh is the first revealed cast member on the series, which marks the return of Star Trek to scripted television for the first time since Star Trek Enterprise ended its run in 2005.

Major plot and character details about Star Trek: Discovery have not been revealed. It is known, however, that it will take place about 10 years before the events of the original series, and that the lead character will be a young woman, likely non-white, serving as a lieutenant commander aboard the Federation starship Discovery, known to her crewmates as “Number One.” This raises the possibility that the character is second in command on the ship, as “number one” is the designation given to two previous Trek first officers: Majel Barrett’s character on the original Star Trek pilot “The Cage” and William Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
