Tonight we bring you the first in our series of our Star Trek: Discovery Los Angeles premiere interviews with the cast and creative team behind the soon-to-debut series, recorded on site at the September 19 event!

Starting us off is actress Michelle Yeoh (Philippa Georgiou), who tells TrekCore’s Jim Moorhouse about filming in Jordan for the premiere’s desert scenes; co-executive producer Ted Sullivan, from whom we try to steal some secrets for a potential second season; actress Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham) talks about the relief that the show’s secrets can finally be revealed; and actor James Frain (Ambassador Sarek) speaks about taking on the Vulcan role and joining the Star Trek family.

We’ll be back tomorrow with Round 2 of our interviews from the premiere!
