Yes, following on from the events of season 3s finale– in which Doug Jones acting Captain Saru chose to take a short-term leave of lack from Starfleet to spend time on his homeworld of Kaminar, leaving the task of Captaining the Discovery as the Federations latest flagship to Burnham– its now all hands on some fancy Command Red for Michael. However theres more than just swanky brand-new uniforms to gawk at here: Michaels being included the deep end as ever, and the Discoverys next objective is more than just re-exploring the detached fringes of the Federation in the 31st Century. Just as its attempting to recuperate from the dilithium lack that isolated allies all last season, the arrival of a sinister new danger– an apparently unstoppable, planet-destroying abnormality– that means to devastate the galaxy whether theyre part of the Federation or not is going to put our most recent Star Trek Captain up to her greatest difficulty yet: defending a future for all, and not simply her family and friends under the Federation flag.

Sonequa Martin-Green, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, David Ajala, Blu del Barrio, and showrunner and executive manufacturer Michelle Paradise were all in participation at Discoverys New York Comic Con 2021 panel. CBS kicked things off by dropping our first look in a long time at Star Trek: Discoverys 4th season– our last was on First Contact Day earlier this year. But things are still as clear as they were then: Michael Burnham remains in for a hell of another flight. Wait, sorry: Captain Michael Burnham.
