The Star Trek: Discovery news keeps dropping this week as we’ve got our first look at actor Jason Isaacs in Starfleet uniform!
Revealed by way of Entertainment Weekly this afternoon, the English actor makes his Trek debut as Captain Gabriel Lorca, commander of the USS Discovery, “considered a brilliant military tactician.”
In addition, EW notes that this photo is the first hint at the look of the Discovery bridge, not seen in any previous promotional video or photography yet released from CBS.
Of note is the consistent uniform design between Lorca and the crew of the USS Shenzou revealed in May, keeping the same blue and gold outfits seen earlier. So far, we’re not seeing any connection to the expected uniforms of a pre-TOS-era series, but the traditional red, blue, and gold designs of the 1960’s may have some appearance in Star Trek: Discovery that just hasn’t been revealed yet.
