New Photo From STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Reveals the Transporter Room and We Have a Uniform Infographic
The transporter rooms in the upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery look very different from any of the transporter rooms that we've seen in the franchise in the past. This photo features one of the transporter rooms on a starship and it features Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) preparing to beam down somewhere and it looks like they are suited up for some possible action. They are sporting some kind of body armor and their phasers are at their side and ready to go. In the foreground on the left, we see the back of Lt. Saru, who is an alien character played by Doug Jones.
According to EW, "This particular transporter bay is aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou and it’s unlike any that Trek fans have ever seen before." The Shenzhou is an older ship. I actually really dig the design because it has a very retro type feel to it. The report also says that the "U.S.S. Discovery is very different from this one" but it has yet to be officially revealed. We did get a glimpse of the bridge of the Discovery in a recent photo featuring Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca. That photo gave us a great look at the Starfleet uniform design. Thanks to TrekMovie we also have a detailed infographic to share with you that breaks down all of the details for that uniforms.
Star Trek: Discovery is set on a new ship and will follow new characters who embark on new adventurous missions while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. The trailer came with the tagline, "Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery".
The cast for the series also includes Anthony Rapp as fellow science officer Stamets, Terry Serpico as Starfleet admiral Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as chief medical officer Nambue, Sam Vartholomeos as junior Starfleet officer Connor, Mary Wiseman as Cadet Tilly, James Frain as Sarek, astrophysicist and father of Spock, Chris Obi as Klingon leader T’Kuvma, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, a Klingon commander, Shazad Latif as Lieutenant Tyler, Rekha Sharma as Commander Landry, Kenneth Mitchell as Kol, Clare McConnell as Dennas, Damon Runyan as Ujilli, and Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.
The series is set to premiere on September 24th, 2017.
