Following a few days on from the announcement of a premiere date, CBS has unveiled the first look at Jason Isaacs as Captain Gabriel Lorca in the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” series.
Lorca is described as a steely Federation Starship Captain who’s considered a brilliant military tactician. He’s the man in charge of the U.S.S. Discovery, but unlike previous Trek shows this will be the first to shift the focus from the ship’s captain to its first officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green).
Neither Isaacs nor the bridge of the Discovery itself were seen in the first trailer for the series, the photo below offers a first glimpse at both.
“Star Trek: Discovery” will consist of fifteen episodes for its first season with the initial eight kicking off weekly from September 24th, and the remaining seven starting in January. The show will be available on CBS All Access in the U.S. and Netflix outside North America.
