CBS has released a new key art poster for Star Trek: Discovery.
The poster features Commander Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) in profile looking skywards. Take a look below.
In addition to being the first officer on the USS Discovery, fans learned yesterday that Michael Burnham is also the adopted sister of Mr. Spock, arguably the most iconic character in the Star Trek universe.
The news was revealed during a panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego. Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, and James Frain were all in attendance, alongside Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Heather Kadin, and Akiva Goldsman for the panel, which was moderated by guest star Rainn Wilson, who plays Star Trek: The Original Series character Harry Mudd on Star Trek: Discovery.
The panel concluded with the release of a brand new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, which can be seen above.

Star Trek: Discovery was created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman. Fuller was originally intended to be Discovery's showrunner but was forced step down due to commitments to Starz' adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods. Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts have taken over as showrunners.
Star Trek: Discovery was announced in 2015 and, though the series intends to abandon at least one key Roddenberry principal and adjust the series for modern expectation, CBS hoped to have the series debut as part of Star Trek’s 50th-anniversary celebration. CBS missed that window and instead the series will come close to a debut on the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Star Trek: Discovery premieres Sept. 24, 2017.
