Star Trek: Discovery’s Sonequa Martin-Green teases brand new Commander Burnham after season 3 time jump
Star Trek: Discovery star Sonequa Martin-Green has teased that things are about to get tough for Commander Burnham in season 3 – after heading to the 32nd century alone.
The character was seen at the end of season two heading through a wormhole, sending her into an unknown world.
While Discovery quickly followed, it’s not as simple as quickly picking her up, and in the teaser for the upcoming new episodes, Burnham was seen planting a battered flag in a barren planet by herself.
The actress has warned this has more of a poignant meaning for the season, and that we could see more independent Burnham as a result.
In this month’s Star Trek magazine (via TrekMovie.com) Sonequa said: ‘In the… time that I spent alone, I marched to the beat of my own drum, in a way. But then I’ve also always been so duty-oriented.
‘So, there’s been this interesting progression of not having to work, not having to be so principle-based, but to just be on this mission to find my crew.
‘We see what it feels like for me to get a little rougher around the edges.’
But after spending time by herself, what does that mean for her to return to her position on the ship, and among the team that she has travelled the universe with?
‘It’s tough to come back. Surprisingly, Shockingly,’ she explained.
‘It’s tough to come back, and to come back to the rigidity that I once knew, that was once home to me.
‘I’ve gotten to live in a world where things are looser. I’ve gotten to feel what that feels like. So, It’s interesting because it’s not an easy transition back to the crew.’
The 13-episode season will be launching from 15 October, airing every Thursday on CBS All Access in the US.
Season three will also mark more diversity for the show, with the introduction of two new crew members, who are non-binary and transgender.
Star Trek: Discovery returns October 15 on CBS All Access and Netflix.
