The internet is abuzz with anticipation today ahead of CBS’s ‘upfront’ presentation this afternoon – their annual event showcasing the company’s upcoming shows for advertisers – and the hope that we’ll get our first real look at Star Trek: Discovery.
Ahead of today’s big event, CBS has shared their very first production photo from the forthcoming Star Trek series (released through EW), featuring the Shenzhou captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) along with fellow Starfleet officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) in heavy-duty desert gear.
It’s not quite clear from the photo where the pair are located – perhaps planet Vulcan? – but each seems to have on hand the expected Starfleet gear, with flip-style communicators and a tricorder large enough to require a carrying-case.
In another surprise, EW reports that this scene (and others yet to come) was actually filmed on location in Jordan!
Stay tuned this afternoon for what is to be a big day for Star Trek: Discovery news!
