Our first look at the USS Discovery came at Comic-Con 2016 and now the show will finally premiere in less than a month! Since then the ship here has changed, but it's designated as NCC-1031, a Walker Class vessel.
On the left of the bridge is Lieutenant Saru, member of a new alien species called Kelpiens, and played by Doug Jones. He is presumably checking out what's on the viewscreen with Burnham (center) and Captain Georgiou.
Played by Anthony Rapp, Lt. Stamets is an astromycologist -- and the first openly gay character in a Star Trek series. His partner will be Dr. Hugh Culber, medical officer of the Starship Discovery, played by Wilson Cruz.
Klingon leader T'Kuvma is looking to unite the Klingon houses. Doesn't look like the Klingons you remember? Again, theories abound: one says that the new look may be due to the storyline taking place before the Klingon augment virus, but we'll have to wait to find out.
Mary Chieffo stars as Klingon commander L'Rell. Little is known about what role the Klingons will play in this series. The timeline of the setting is a bit wibbly wobbly between "Enterprise" and the original series, so theories abound on why these Klingons don't look like those we've seen before.
We do know that "Discovery" will explore the differences between Klingon houses. Kenneth Mitchell stars as Klingon commander Kol (pictured) and recently spoke about the Klingons at the Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, saying the show will explore the 24 Klingons houses and their leaders.
Speaking with EW, Martin-Green said her character is fully human, but was the first human to attend the Vulcan Learning Center, and then the Vulcan Science Academy. She also has a close relationship with Sarek (Spock's father), which we see in the first trailer.
