Our final round of Star Trek: Discovery Hollywood premiere interviews are here, and this afternoon we’re spending time with the creative team behind the new series!

First up are series executive producers and showrunning team Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg, who talk about their hopeful thoughts for a Discovery Season 2; series and main title composer Jeff Russo who talks about finding inspiration from classic Trek score; writer and Voyager novelist Kirsten Beyer about working closely with the Discovery actors; and lastly makeup and creature designers Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page who talk about all the work they’ve put into bringing the look of the series to screen.

Stick around for our review of the two-hour Star Trek: Discovery premiere later tonight!

  • I write TOS fan fiction, and I can’t imagine how incredible it must be to write something and then watch the actors actually bring it to life. That must be just an awesome experience! So yeah, when Kirsten Beyer says she cried when watching the actors film her script, I can see how she would. 🙂

      Beyer made me realize that Voyager could have worked so much better than it did.

      Sure, the actors bring it to life, but she’s got serious writing chops to bring to them.

      • Absolutely! One of the many things that makes me hopeful about Discovery is that Kirsten Beyer is writing for it. When Star Trek has been bad in the past, it’s almost always been because of bad writing, so I’m looking forward to some good writing on the new show.

    I still have a feeling that an origin Borg story, of some sort will happen one day. The Borg are too big a villain in Trek canon to stay dormant for too long…

    One season only, and that’s it.
