'Star Trek: Discovery' Cast Combines 'Star Trek' and 'Rent' on 'Carpool Karaoke'

Several members of the Star Trek: Discovery cast are featured on the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke.

The episode features Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham), Doug Jones (Saru), Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets), and Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly). Carpool Karaoke released a clip from the episode online. In the clip, the cast members sing a song about Star Trek to the tune of the song “Season of Love” from the musical Rent. The Rent callback is a special one for Rapp, who was part of the musical’s original Broadway cast and starred in the film adaptation.

The episode includes more of the cast interacting while they drive through Toronto, where Star Trek: Discovery is filmed. Doug Jones recalls his wild disco days and the rest of the group talks about their nerd habits and history. They sing along to songs ranging from “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor to “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran to “Space Oddity” by David Bowie.
