Entertainment Weekly has revealed today not one or two, but three brand-new special-edition Star Trek: Discovery covers for their upcoming issues, promising to dive behind the scenes on the upcoming series.
Due out on Friday, this trio of covers features much of the show’s announced cast in uniform, preparing for the Discovery launch this September – and giving us our first look at the sets of the USS Discovery.
The Michael Burnam (Sonequa Martin-Green) solo cover is only available at Barnes & Noble stores.
In the issue, we go behind the scenes of the upcoming CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery and the 12-year mission to bring the ground-breaking franchise back to TV in its boldest version yet.
With unprecedented exclusive access, EW tours the Discovery sets and talks with the show’s cast (led by The Walking Dead‘s Sonequa Martin-Green), producers, and CBS insiders about the epic and sometimes combative challenge of making a compelling 21st-century drama that updates a beloved 20th-century franchise which takes place in a visionary 23rd century.
In addition to these three new covers, EW has also released a brand-new video featuring interviews with the cast and a look behind the scenes from filming on the series.
Those of you eagerly awaiting cast photography shoudln’t have too much longer to wait, as this video includes many of the cast – including our first look at Shazad Latif’s Lt. Ash Tyler – being photographed on the Star Trek: Discovery sets.
Of note is the new transporter room which looks much more in line with Trek adventures previously seen (compared to the unusual design seen on the USS Shenzhou)…
…and Mary Wiseman’s Cadet Sylvia Tilly sporting a unique Starfleet insignia:
We can’t wait to see more of the USS Discovery sets and the forthcoming photography featuring this cast – and we’ll bring it to you here at TrekCore once available.
