"Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Will Explore Spock & Michael Burnham Connection

Sonequa Martin-Green made the leap from being a supporting actress on The Walking Dead, to heading her personal collection. Star Trek: Discovery locations Green within the function of Michael Burnham (sure, she has a sometimes male title), the primary African America feminine lead on the collection. As a baby, Burnham listened from a hidden place as Klingons broke into her home and murdered her dad and mom. She was then raised on Vulcan, the place she turned the primary human to attend the Vulcan Learning Center.

Star Trek followers, or Trekkies, disapproved of Burnham’s origin story for one cause. How is it attainable that she by no means bumped into Spock? Discovery takes locations previous to the occasions of the primary Star Trek present, which might imply Spock could be in attendance on the similar faculty. At the least, Spock ought to have met or talked about the primary human to be taught on Vulcan. When by TrekFilm requested if followers will ever discover out why Spock hasn’t talked about her, Green answered, “Oh gosh, yeah.”

“There’s a protracted sport with Star Trek: Discovery,” she continued. “Because it’s hyper-serialized, and since it’s a novel informed in chapters, there’s a through-line, and there are conceptual weavings that take time to unravel – which may have been a combined metaphor, however we’re simply going to go along with it – however I actually encourage everybody to belief that each single query that we elevate in Star Trek: Discovery that will seem to be it’s not canon-compliant, each a type of questions will get answered. Every one.”
