Updated post with the series trailer! 

    With the numerous delays and set-backs, STAR TREK fans have been wondering if CBS’ upcoming series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY (coming to CBS’ all Access digital platform) would ever see the light of day. But now, EW has the first official photo from the set of star Sonequa Martin-Green (best known as Sasha from THE WALKING DEAD) as First Officer Michael Burnham and Michelle Yeoh who will be playing Captain Philippa Georgiou to give everyone a ray of hope.

    The photo apparently comes from a location shoot in Jordan and EW has a few clues about what the photo reveals:

    There are a couple of details for fans in this shot as well: Burnham has what looks like an old-school flip communicator on her belt (Discovery is a prequel to the 1966 original series) as well as what could be a tricorder hanging below her left hip — seems appropriate for a First Officer (Spock often carried a tricorder on missions supporting Captain Kirk in TOS).

    1. Only BM and AF are allowed to be actual characters in Western media. How is this newsworthy?

    2. *It’s actually Captain Philippa Georgiou, not Georgia.
