CBS has officially announced the name of Sonequa Martin-Green’s character in the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series who was previously described as the Lieutenant Commander of the Discovery. Martin-Green will play First Officer Michael Burnham.
As Entertainment Weekly has pointed out, a Lieutenant Commander in the Trek-verse can also be the ship’s First Officer so it’s possible Burnham is both. CBS broke the news today as they tweeted out the announcement of Martin-Green’s characters name.
First Officer Michael Burnham will serve under the titular ship’s captain, Captain Lorca, played by Jason Isaacs. Martin-Green is just one part of the diverse cast of Star Trek: Discovery which also includes Michelle Yeoh as the first openly gay character on a series in the Star Trek franchise.
