Star Trek: Discovery Reveals First Cast Photo

After months of anticipation, fans can get finally get a first look at Star Trek: Discovery.

CBS shared a photo of stars Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou and First Officer Michael Burnham, respectively. In the shot, the two crew members of the Starship Shenzhou are seen surveying their surroundings on a barren planet. CBS is apparently sparing no expense for this long-awaited reboot, with Entertainment Weekly revealing that the scene pictured was filmed in Jordan. (The majority of Star Trek: Discovery's production is based out of a studio in Toronto.)

Eagle-eyed fans will also notice what appears to be a classic flip communicator on Martin-Green's belt. If you're only familiar with more modern iterations of Star Trek, you might be wondering why the technology seems so old school, but Discovery is actually a prequel to the original 1966 Star Trek series.
