Star Trek’s Shazad Latif on Lieutenant Ash Tyler’s Vulnerability and That Twist:

Since you mentioned the dynamic between you and Sonequa, can you talk a little bit about crafting the relationship between Michael and Tyler?


“That was sort of the joy of it. Every time we got together and got these scenes, we didn’t just want to make them classic, male and female [dynamic]. It’s a very strange romance ’cause we’ve both got our own separate things going on, but we just wanted to get that balance of male and female energies right, and we can be weak around each other. Because they’re the outcasts. They need each other. They were each other’s tethers. Then again, it also is very complicated because really Voq’s got this whole L’Rell love story going on as well.[Chuckles.] And both are equally justifiable, so you know, it’s tragic that one has to give.”

Jason Isaacs Finally Explains Captain Lorca’s Secret:

“I wouldn’t have said to yes to just ‘being a Captain’ in the abstract,” Isaacs says confidently. “I also knew it wasn’t going to be like any Star Trek captain that had come before. I knew the whole story. It gave me something juicy and fun and very secretive to play with. I feel an enormous relief now that I don’t have to lie anymore. Not just to journalists and the public, which is horrible, but also to my friends, my family, everybody. Only my closest circle knew I was going to die and it was going to be over and that I was from the Mirror World. I felt like the shackles are off now.”

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Showrunners Talk Huge Development And More Exploring For Season 2:

Harberts pushes the more traditional Trek angle as something the duo “wants to explore more” in the new season, which they just started working last month. He acknowledges the “well-documented” embattled season-one production, but enthuses that “This year, we have a fantastic creative team in place, everybody knows each other. But we also have time this year—we have time to do things like more away missions, newer planets. These are stories that might fall a little bit more into a framework of allegory that people love to get from Trek. But we will always continue to have that overarching serialized thread.”

Star Trek: Discovery’s Wilson Cruz on the midseason premiere, gay representation, and a musical episode:

In all seriousness, though, as a fan of Dr. Culber, and yours, it was hard to watch this episode. Will we see Hugh again on the show?

I can tell you that we will be seeing Dr. Culber again.

I can even tell you that as part of the longer epic love story we are planning on telling between these two characters there is a scene in this season that is my favorite thing I have ever filmed in my twenty-five years and I can’t wait for you guys to see it. So when I tell you that it’s not over, it really isn’t. There are reasons why the story has taken a turn, but I just ask that you guys trust us in the storytelling. I had conversations with the producers and there is a bigger story here to be told, and we are going to tell it.

Anthony Rapp and Wilson Cruz Go Where None Have Gone Before:

Heroism aside, it is the simple toothbrush scene that will be remembered for making Star Trek history. For the first time since the franchise initially aired on television in 1966, fans saw not only how people in the future practice good oral hygiene, but, more importantly, a gay couple being themselves in an intimate moment.

INTERVIEW: After Trek Host Matt Mira

INTERVIEW: After Trek Host Matt Mira:

How much fun, anxiety aside, are you having hosting the program?

I love it. I mean, it’s a hoot. I’ve really enjoyed meeting everybody involved in the show, involved on Discovery. We’re really there to support Discovery. We’re there to have a forum to discuss what’s going on in Discovery.
I found that the best way to do that is to understand that there’s 50
years of canon, but also understand that there’s a television show
that’s being made and that has to be entertaining and it’s 2017. That’s
the part we all have to keep in perspective.

Who will be your first guests when Discovery and After Trek return on January 7?

Wilson Cruz is coming back and I believe Mary Chieffo will also be
there (in person). And we’ll have Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts by
Skype.
