FIRST LOOK: ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Props, Uniforms On Display at SDCC

The premiere of Star Trek: Discovery is now just two months away and CBS is making their presence felt at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. As we first reported earlier this week, Discovery has an immersive pop-up display that has taken over the Michael J. Wolf Fine Art Gallery in San Diego’s Gaslamp Disdrict. On Thursday, TrekNews.net got to tour the location that has several props and uniforms from the show on hand for fans to enjoy.

From the Starfleet uniforms to Klingon battle armor, take a look at some of what CBS has on hand in San Diego in the gallery below.

The Star Trek: Discovery display will be set up from Thursday though Sunday. Each day, 1,000 lucky fans will also be eligible to receive a limited-edition Discovery poster. A Comic-Con badge is not required to visit the exhibit or be entered to win one of the posters.

As we’ve previously reported, Star Trek: Discovery will have a big panel on Saturday, July 22 at SDCC with actors Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, and James Frain will appear on stage at 2:30 p.m. PT in Ballroom 20, along with the show’s executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Gretchen J.

    I’m trying to keep an open mind, but I’m having a hard time like any of the Klingon designs at all. It just seems like they were redesigned for the sake of it, and are just over designed. I understand the desire to update things, and there was room to do that with the Klingons, but this is just goes too far.

    I’ll wait for the show for a final opinion. Maybe in context and in motion it looks better, but so far I’m not impressed.

      Totally agree… Looks really terrible.

    All these designs seem overly decorative. From all the useless trim on the Star Fleet uniforms to the impossible to move in Klingon armor — it all seems to be unmotivated by anything. Star Trek, even most of Abrams Trek, has always had a utilitarian esthetic. The clothing and weapons were supposed to look useful, not Art Deco. It was sort of a reaction to Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon & etc. This stuff is straying pretty far from that DNA. It’s as if some executive said “The new show hast to look 10 times more complex than any other Trek show or movie” — even if that makes no sense. Most of this stuff looks like it was designed by the same person who outfits the Russian ice dancing team.

      *Except the Shatner era alien love interest of the week — she generally wore the least amount of fabric allowed on network TV.

    I’ve watched the ST:Discovery trailer 2…Okay, it looks like a full design reboot with some canon…It looks interesting…I’ll give it a chance…To me, it looks like there blending TOS, TNG, and The high-speed action, and other elements of JJ Abramsverse ST into the best of both worlds for modern viewers both new and old …
