‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Actors Discuss What We Can Expect In “Vaulting Ambition”

NOTE: Article contains spoilers for Sunday’s episode of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

A couple of actors are out and about talking about tomorrow’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery. We have gathered together some of the key highlights.

Shazad Latif on what’s next for Tyler and Voq.

The big reveal that Tyler is actually Voq from last week’s episode has thrown a major change into the show, leading to queestions about what’s next for the character. Speaking to the New York Post, Shazad hints at what’s left of Tyler following Voq’s re-awakening in last week’s episode

NYP: Will the real, physical Tyler ever return?

Latif: Not melded with Voq? The next episode is exploring exactly that.

In the preview trailer for “Vaulted Ambition” we can see Tyler struggling in sickbay. Latif talked to Bustle about how as an actor he appreciated these scenes:

“The med bay scenes are my favorite to film, because it’s just about characters being vulnerable. It’s not me playing the action hero dude. You’re seeing a man in a vulnerable place. You can see him be weak, and crying, and upset. It’s exploring that side of masculinity and just exploring the self in that way.”

The fly in the ointment for L’Rell’s plan to trigger Voq and use him to get the secrets of the USS Discovery was Tyler’s relationship with Michael Burnham. Speaking to ABC Radio, Latif talks about what’s next for this couple:

“We see the fallout between Michael and Tyler and how they’re gonna deal with this, ’cause they still have to carry on working together — there’s stuff to do!” Latif laughs. “They’ve got to go and sort out this Terran Empire…so yeah, there’s a lot to come!”

Burnham and Voq/Tyler have a complicated relationship

Wilson Cruz on the return of Culber

As has been already announced, the death of Dr. Culber in episode 10 wasn’t the last time we would see Wilson Cruz this season. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor talked about his return in this Sunday’s episode. From the report:

“This episode really sets [Stamets] up for the heroic journey that he’s about to embark on, but also sets up the fact that there are a multitude of possibilities for Dr. Culber going forward,” the 44-year-old actor hinted, potentially leaving the door open for future appearances.

“They’re so tender and sweet and also so fragile,” Cruz said, adding that he enjoyed reuniting with Anthony Rapp. “I think they exemplify that this couple and their love goes beyond even this mortal coil. It transcends time and space.”

We haven’t seen the last of Wilson Cruz’s Dr. Hugh Culber

Episode 12 of Star Trek: Discovery will be available on CBS All Access on Sunday, January 21st by 8:30 pm ET. It will air in Canada on the Space Channel at 8:00 pm ET the same day and be available on Netflix outside the USA and Canada on Monday, January 22th at 8 am GMT.

Do we seriously need 4-5 articles for each episode? Don’t forget to post the reminder tomorrow. And a couple pics. And a mention of after Trek. And the next episode review. And someone’s opinion on the episode. Etc etc etc.

So monotonous.

Are you a Star Trek fan? Are you going to complain about coverage of every little tidbit of stuff for Tarintino’s trek movie too… on a site called trekmovie?

Too much coverage? don’t read it

Yes, that’s what we do here. We discuss and speculate every single small hint. And there are many regarding to Disco. It’s almost like a meld between Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica. Just not so dark ;)

Loving the whole Disco thing.
Greatest nickname ever!

“So monotonous.”

As is fanboy whining, ironically enough.

This complaint is new, but I like it better than those drones complaining about “negativity” as if constructive criticism and discussion has no place here and we are all just supposed to hail the almighty producers :)

Mind you, these are still very much the ‘Star Trek is back as a series’ days.

This is taking the idea of “whining fanboy” to a new low. Would you also to whine about the redesigned Klingons? Or CBSAA? Perhaps you’d like to complain about the fact that this isn’t like previous itinerations of Trek?

He does have a point, you know. I personally don’t bother to read most of them, now. Maybe the review article, but that’s about it. I’ve been coming to TM ever since 2008 or 2009, and this is the most, well, promotional it’s ever felt.

You’re certainly free to choose not to read every article. For example, I skip most of the comics-related stuff because it doesn’t interest me. Trekmovie has always tried to provide full coverage of everything related to official Trek – and even some fan-made Trek. There were dry spells (and people complained about not enough content) and there were phases when a lot was going on. And now, all of a sudden, people are complaining about too much coverage. There is a simple solution to that: If you think there’s too many articles don’t read all of them. However, my impression is that people complain because they don’t like what’s being reported. If the content was more to their liking they wouldn’t mind the quantity.

You really don’t have to read them. That power is right there at your fingertips. I enjoy the various articles. They probably could be consolidated into one “preview” and one “review” article, but after waiting years between Star Trek films, I enjoy all the coverage and speculation. For me, it’s half the fun of following a series and one reason I enjoy that they don’t just drop the whole season at once like some other shows ($ aside).

Culber’s a part of the spore network now..
That has to be it.

Actually, as long as it shows passion for Trek,
I wouldn’t mind 6 or 7 articles.
