The new season puts plenty of pressure on Discovery's new captain based on the trailer and key art. Speaking to ComicBook.com in July, Martin-Green expressed what Burnham sitting in the captain's seat means to her.
"That's such a big deal to me," Martin-Green said. "Being captain now of that franchise solidified at the helm of that ship in the franchise's history as a Black woman, huge for me and, in general, for the franchise itself."
The Star Trek: Discovery panel included series stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, David Ajala, Blu del Barrio, and showrunner and executive producer Michelle Paradise. Journalist Karama Horne moderated.
