[Sarek] believed I could serve as humanity’s potential. 

But not everyone agreed with him. A group of logic extremists, they didn’t want humans in their culture, they tried to stop him by killing me.


SAN DIEGO, CA - JULY 22: (Top L-R) James Frain, Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Mary Wiseman and Shazad Latif (Bottom) Anthony Rapp and Doug Jones from CBS’ ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ pose for a portrait during Comic-Con 2017 at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego

'Star Trek: Discovery' adds new twist to human-Vulcan balance
Starfleet officer Michael Burnham is a human who was raised on Vulcan by Ambassador Sarek.

“He’s (Sarek) a loving and present figure, but he’s also distant and emotionally unavailable. That’s something that’s of our time, but he’s trying to teach her the value of that. He has a tremendous affection for her,” Frain says.  

“Being a fully human woman who is indoctrinated with the Vulcan philosophy and way of life and who now (is in) Starfleet … there’s quite an identity crisis going on,” Martin-Green says. “Who am I going to be?”

Excited to see what the writers and artists behind Star Trek: Discovery have in store, but in the meantime I thought it was time to start to add crew members to my Discovery fan art. We don’t know what the ‘little talked about event’ is that surrounds the show but maybe it’s the Vulcanian Expedition. Hopefully we will find out soon!
