With the season two premiere just a couple of days away, the promotion for Star Trek: Discovery continues to heat up. Sonequa Martin-Green is doing her part, check out what she has to say and show in a couple of new videos.
Martin-Green says Spock’s beard works with the story
Last night Sonequa Martin-Green was a guest on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. She brought along with her a clip from the season two premiere of Discovery (“Brother”) and the pair talked about her home town dedicating a day just for her and a bit about the new Spock, played by Ethan Peck. Regarding Spock’s beard, Martin-Green pointed out that Discovery takes place a decade before The Original Series, and so “there is time for him to shave.” She also added, “I think it looks amazing and you will see it works perfectly in the story.”
Michael Burnham serving the needs of the many in season two
Syfy has also released a video interview with Martin-Green and executive producer Alex Kurtzman. In it, Discovery’s lead talks about her character’s arc in the first season and into the second, saying:
What informs Burnham the most is going from first officer to prisoner. Because that was the beginning. That was the sort of revolutionary moment for Burnham, falling from grace, and it was such a steep fall. And such a hard impact at the bottom, seeing what the cost of arrogance was and learning how to submit to authority and learning how to serve the needs of the many in a real way and not think that just because you have a logic upbringing you are always right. I think all of those things are still at play with Burnham and these are lessons that needed to be learned and they will continue and now at this point where I have been reinstated, now it is time to forgive myself and it is time to let my logic and emotion work seemlessly so I can indeed serve the needs of the many and not the needs of the few.
