In this brief clip, we see the first encounter between Michael Burnham, clad in her Starfleet thruster suit, and the Klingon Torchbearer warrior, armed with bat’leth and ready to fight.
Just as she introduces herself to the warrior – after her spacesuit has scanned and identified the adversary as a Klingon (complete with handy visual indicators on the heads-up display in her helmet – the Torchbearer strikes out with his bat’leth to attack the officer.
Martin-Green didn’t spill any new plot or story secrets during her Late Show appearance, but she did reveal that when the Discovery cast traveled to Jordan to film scenes on the desert planet, the prince of Jordan visited the set.
