First Look At Jason Isaacs as Discovery’s Captain Lorca

Captain on the bridge!

Here it is! Our first look at Jason Isaacs as Federation Starship Captain Gabriel Lorca on Star Trek: Discovery.

In addition to Isaacs in his Starfleet uniform, the image also gives us our first real look at the bridge of the U.S.S. Discovery and the ship’s captain’s chair.

Isaacs was a bit conspicuous by his absence from the first Discovery trailer, which debuted in May.

    I don’t want to be overwhelmed or underwhelmed by this series. My only hope is to be at least “whelmed”…
