The second season finale of Star Trek: Discovery still has fans speculating about what the jump forward 930 years into the future means for the show, and they are not alone. The cast is also talking about the possibilities.
Discovery cast talks about leaping ahead of TNG era
The new Moments of Discovery video CBS released today features Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz, and Mary Wiseman. They bring up some interesting comments and questions about the implications of the finale, such as:
Doug Jones: For us to jump ahead of Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, it’s like ahhh, I can breathe now because we don’t have to worry about rules and regulations. Now we can create without consequences…The slate is clean, the chalk is in hand, anything can happen.
Anthony Rapp: I think that gives our writers, and our designers and our creative team incredible freedom now to do anything new.
They also bring up some important questions:
Sonequa Martin-Green: Anything can happen, what is this future we are going to?
Mary Wiseman: What exists in the future? What kind of technology they might have? What kind of landscape are we going to end up in?
Anthony Rapp: Are we going to see some of the familiar species we haven’t seen before? Are we going to continue to see new species? What state is the Federation in? What’s going on with Starfleet?
