Earlier today, the Star Trek: Discovery Twitter page revealed the very first look at the show, and if you were expecting Starfleet uniforms, you might be disappointed. The image features Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham and Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou on a desert planet. UPDATE: Trailer added below.
In addition to the desert wardrobe, Entertainment Weekly points out that they appear to be carrying an old-school communicator and Tricorder.
Clearly, they were trying to say something about the show by releasing this unorthodox image first, but I certainly hope that it wasn’t “we’re a lot like Star Wars now”. On the plus side these two characters supposedly serve on different ships, which seems to indicate that the show will focus on more than one vessel.
