Last weekend Star Trek: Discovery took a trip into the Mirror Universe, which will continue in tonight’s episode “The Wolf Inside.” It was revealed in last week’s episode that various aliens, including Klingons, Vulcans and Andorians have banded together to fight the human-centric Terran Empire. And the video preview for tonight’s episode hinted that we will see some of these familiar Star Trek aliens.
Today, Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive on four new images from “The Wolf Inside” that revealed these aliens, giving us the first look at Discovery’s take on both Andorians and Tellarites.
The preview images are also noteworthy they also give us a clear image that the enigmatic character of Voq is returning, albeit the Mirror Universe version of the Klingon who vanished from the show in episode 4.
Andorians and Tellarites in Star Trek
Andorians and Tellarites are some of the most important members of the Star Trek family as both are founding member races of the United Federation of Planets, along with Humans and Vulcans. Both aliens were introduced in the TOS episode “Journey to Babel,” which also introduced the character of Sarek.
Both alien species appeared periodically in the franchise over the years with some changes to the design along the way. The most recent was during the run of Star Trek: Enterprise, where Andorians were especially prominent.
Star Trek: Discovery is available exclusively in the USA on CBS All Access. It airs in Canada on the Space Channel and on Netflix outside the USA and Canada.
