Today’s Star Trek: Discovery update includes video of a talk show appearance by Jason Isaacs and Sonequa Martin-Green. Plus we have more video of the cast talking about their favorite episodes, a showrunner challenging fans to cosplay and more.
Isaacs talks Discovery hippies + Bryan Adams wants in
Some of the Discovery cast have been promoting the show in Europe. This includes an appearance with Jason Isaacs and Sonequa Martin-Green in the UK yesterday on BBC’s The One Show. When asked about the moral ambiguity of Captain Lorca, Jason Isaacs replied:
He is trying to win the war against the Klingons and he is surrounded by a bunch of hippies and idiots on his ship. So, I need to stock the ship with people like Sonequa’s character, who can think outside the box to kill people before they kill you.
Also appearing on the show was singer Bryan Adams who revealed that a month ago he was approached about appearing on the Discovery and he said he would love to do it, joking that he was “naturally looking like a Klingon,” but then “it went away.” Jason and Sonequa invited him to come on for the second season.
Martin-Green also shared this image of the press snapping her outfit on social media.
She and Isaacs were joined earlier in the week by co-star Shazad Latif and co-showrunner Aaron Harberts at a convention in Lucca, Italy. They shared some images from from that event too:

Uniforms created for cosplaying challenge
In a TV Guide feature about Star Trek: Discovery costumes, Aaron Harberts said
“Part of the fun is [creating a] new uniform. We wanted the fans, the cosplayers, to get out there and try something new. Like, you can always pull out your red or yellow shirt… But let’s give them a challenge.”
