Discovery Update

Last night, Star Trek: Discovery had a gala premiere in Hollywood.  Many Trek alums including William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Nicole DeBoer, Nana Visitor, Roxann Dawson, Connor Trinneer, John Billingsley, Anthony Montgomery, and the Okudas were in attendance.  The news from Discovery has been flying fast and furious this week with new behind the scenes videos and images being shared on social media. The titles of the first four episodes of the series have been released.  The first half of the pilot is entitled "The Vulcan Hello".

One of the recent videos has given us a glimpse of Michael Burnham in a Vulcan costume.  The costume fits in well with the movie-era Vulcan designs we've seen like T'Lar's costume from Star Trek III. The context of the images seems to be Sarek delivering Burnham to the USS Shenzhou.

The same video shows a young Burnham, presumably on Vulcan, it what looks like one of the learning pods from Star Trek (2009).

We've also seen a glimpse of James Frain's Sarek makeup being applied.

Reviews of the new series have been embargoed until the 25th but the comments on social media from those who were at last night's premiere have me pretty excited for Discovery!
