It may be wartime in Star Trek: Discovery, but its all fun and games behind the scenes.
At least that’s the impression given by a new batch of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Star Trek: Discovery. Released via Entertainment Weekly, the new photos show Klingons checking their phones, Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham) punch-posing for a selfie with Rainn Wilson (Harry Mudd), and pretty much everyone on the cast just having a good time.

CBS All Access has slowly been building up to the return of Star Trek: Discovery in January. Four new character posters for the show's second chapter have been released as well as the titles for of the remaining episodes in Star Trek: Discovery's first season.
During the midseason break, some of the show's stars like Jason Isaacs and Shazad Latif have been responding to the initial backlash from fans that followed, and even preceded the show’s debut.
“When we make it I’m enjoying what we’re doing and the rest we don’t have any power over,” Latif said. “It’s like a painting, if people don’t like it then they don’t like it. We can’t really do much about that."
“I thought it was just a sign of how unbelievably passionate and protective they were of this legacy, and before we were on the air they were reacting to a trailer or something,” Isaacs said. “Micro-analysing every frame of it. Now that we’re on, I’m a bit disappointed that the dissent has died down. I liked when people were outraged by things, and
“Every new series that came along was hated instinctually by everybody and slowly they were won over. I think we’ve won them over. Quickly, which is a bit of a shame.”
Star Trek: Discovery returns to CBS All Access on January 7, 2018.
