Discovery pins reveal USS Shenzhou class name

Also happening this morning, pin maker FanSets has unveiled their new line of Star Trek: Discovery pins on Instagram, with pins representing Captain Georgiou, Saru, T’Kuvma, and the U.S.S. Shenzhou.

You note the pin reveals the ship class for the U.S.S. Shenzhou as “Walker Class.” Some fans have speculated this may be a joking homage to Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham on Discovery) and her past on The Walking Dead, but ship designer John Eaves revealed this morning that the Walker class was named after X-15 pilot Jospeh A. Walker.


More EW Photos

Last week we reported on the Entertainment Weekly Star Trek: Discovery photoshoot and cover story. EW also released a few more images from their shoot, including Doug Jones as Saru and good looks at the transporter room and corridor of the U.S.S. Discovery, with the crew having a bit of fun too.

Shatner engages the Klingons

William Shatner sent out a tweet asking his followers who was headed to Star Trek Las Vegas this week, and one of the fans who replied was Kenneth Mitchell who plays the Klingon Kol on Star Trek: Discovery. Shatner being Shatner couldn’t help but to have fun with the new Klingon. Here is the exchange.
