captain’s log

So, the big news this issue is I’ve joined the cast of Star Trek: Discovery. There I am, in the photo above, flanked by Mary Wiseman and Sonequa Martin-Green, surrounded by the rest of the Disco crew. Look for me in Season 2, lurking in the background on the bridge looking gormless. Obviously I haven’t actually joined the Discovery cast (I’ve never acted in my life, although I did manage a passable Santa at my daughter’s school Christmas fair last year); that picture was taken at Destination Star Trek Birmingham, which you can read all about starting on page 78. But though my dream of striding purposefully onto the bridge of U.S.S. Discovery (or even lurking gormlessly on it) remains unfulfilled, Star Trek Magazine did get a look around the bridge…

2 THE DISCO ! Discovery Season 2 reveals its secrets A year on from the Season 1 finale of Star Trek: Discovery – one of 2018’s five most in-demand original digital series in the world, according to data science firm Parrot Analytics – the much-anticipated second season is at last underway, accompanied by a blaze of publicity. The first episode of Season 2, “Brother,” debuted January 17 on CBS All Access in the US and January 18 on Netflix elsewhere, with episodes airing weekly thereafter. Preceded by the fourth of the Short Treks – the Rainn Wilson-directed and starring “The Escape Artist,” which was written by Mike McMahan, Executive Producer of the forthcoming animated Star Trek: Lower Decks – the advent of the new season was heralded by a series of striking character-pairing…

the disco set

THE BRIDGE Our tour guide is Jody Clement, one of three art directors on the series. We arrive at the first of the many huge stages utilized for the show, the bridge. The set looms above us, as it’s raised up from the floor. Naturally, there’s no actual viewscreen in there, so we’re able to see the set fully lit within. Before we take the wooden steps up to the set, there are sticky mats outside the entrance to prevent dirt and grit from getting into filming areas. Entering at the front, from the left side of the viewscreen, it’s impossible not to let out a cry of excitement to be standing on the bridge of the Discovery. Jody points out that many people assume the see-through screens are all operated by…

executive summary

Star Trek Magazine : Alex, what can you tell us about the second season of Star Trek: Discovery that you’ve never revealed before? Alex Kurtzman: We are going to sync up with canon at the end of the season. And Heather, could you reveal something? Heath Kadin: Something’s going to change about Saru. (Laughs) There could be a lot of changes emotionally. Season 1 of Discovery introduced the characters and laid out the perils for the crew. Moving into the second year, what has been the trickiest aspect so far? AK: Well, obviously there’s a lot of questions from last season, right? How come Spock never mentioned his half-sister Michael Burnham? We owe the audience an answer to that. One of the things that I’m the most excited about this season is that this…

that picard show

Star Trek Magazine: You have two live action shows in production at the moment – Star Trek: Discovery and the Jean-Luc Picard series. Is there much overlap in the production and development of the two shows? Alex Kurtzman: Right now they’re very separate, entirely separate shows. Heather Kadin: What we can say about that show – and I think any shows that we’re going to be doing in this universe – is that they should all feel of a different voice from one another, and they should feel like you’re having a different viewing experience. When we were first meeting with Patrick Stewart, it was very important to him that it wasn’t just like you’re watching another Discovery – that the Picard show feels very different, and the way we’re going to…

It was arguably the finest first-season moment for both Star Trek: Discovery and its leading lady, Sonequa Martin-Green. In the closing few minutes of the season finale, “Will You Take My Hand?”, Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham delivered a remarkable speech, realized on screen in part as a voiceover and in part with Burnham at a ceremony, standing before her fellow U.S.S. Discovery crew sporting their Starfleet Medals of Honor, and a contingent of applauding Starfleet officers. Among Burnham’s most stirring lines were these examples: “The only way to defeat fear is to tell it ‘No.’ No, we will not take shortcuts on the path to righteousness. No, we will not break the rules that protect us from our basest instincts. No, we will not allow desperation to destroy moral authority.” Burnham’s oration served to…
