Star Trek: Discovery – Jason Isaacs Explains His ‘Wartime’ Captain – IGN:

“It’s one big, long novel-like story that, with many twists and turns, unfolds over 15 episodes,” he explains. “We go deeper into character, and we go deeper into the relationships. We’ve changed a lot. And conflicts that come up, some of which resolve, some of which aren’t, and intimacies that develop – that’s where all great drama comes from. All shows are family shows, all good shows. You know, the crew is a family, just like any other show you can think of on television is a family show. So this is about how people are with each other. And what you want to do is put them in situations of enormous crisis, because then you really measure up. You see people are the best and worst versions of themselves in crisis, and there’s no bigger crisis than war.”
