CBS officially unveiled the first STAR TREK: DISCOVERY photo early Wednesday morning. The image depicts Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou and Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham on an dry desert-like alien planet.
Burnham appears to have what looks like a tricorder, reminiscent of technology seen in Star Trek: The Original Series, on her belt. This would make sense, as Discovery is set a decade before the adventures of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the crew of the Enterprise.
