Star Trek veteran Jonathan Frakes has returned to the franchise to direct an upcoming episode of Star Trek: Discovery. Below you will find a video that features footage of him directing the episode, which is titled "Despite Yourself". I'm a big fan of Frakes, so it's awesome to see that he got to jump on board and direct another Star Trek project! Here's a brief synopsis of the episode:
While in unfamiliar territory, the U.S.S. Discovery crew is forced to get creative in their next efforts to survive opposing and unprecedented forces and return home.
On top of starring in Star Trek: The Next Generation for seven seasons and four movies, he also directed eight episodes of The Next Generation, three episode of Deep Space Nine and Voyager, as well as the movies First Contact and Insurrection. He's also directed an episode of The Orville.
"Despite Yourself" is set to air this Sunday, January 7th.
