On Thursday the fourth season of Star Trek: Discovery debuts in the USA and Canada. Paramount+ shared a clip from the episode titled “Kobayashi Maru” featuring Federation President Laira Rillak, a new character played by Chelah Horsdal.
This clip from Thursday’s episode features President Rillak (who is a mix of Cardassian, Bajoran, and Human) addressing a crowd to thank Captain Burnham and the crew of the USS Discovery for all their hard work in season three. She gives an update on what has been going on since we last saw our characters, including making a big introduction.
Say hello to Archer Spacedock, introduced with “Archer’s Theme” from Star Trek: Enterprise. Inside is what appears to be the USS Voyager-J set to be “upgraded.” The president also reveals plans to construct “the next generation of Starfleet vessels,” as the Starfleet intends to return to exploring new worlds.
Rillak also addressed “cadets” hinting that she was speaking to a new class for Starfleet Academy, which has also been hinted at in preview images and of course with the episode title itself.
