…Isaacs' Captain Lorca.

"Just a few days after finally announcing a premiere date, CBS has unveiled the first look at Jason Isaacs as the brand new Star Trek captain Gabriel Lorca. Isaacs joins some lofty ranks of those that came before him in the upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery, where he plays "a steely Federation Starship Captain who's considered a brilliant military tactician." In a bit of a change up, Star Trek: Discovery's protagonist is not a captain, but instead Starfleet First Officer Michael Burnham played by The Walking Dead alum Sonequa Martin-Green.

This image also gives us our first hint at the bridge of the Discovery, as the ship shown in the series' first trailer was not that of the Discovery but of a different ship that factors into the first episode.

Star Trek: Discovery will consist of 15 episodes in total, launching on September 24th with the premiere on CBS. After that, however, the rest of the episodes will be available exclusively on CBS's streaming service CBS All Access. It'll be interesting to see how this show fits into the overall Star Trek canon, but Isaacs certainly looks great here as the new captain…"

Dead man walking… or sitting, in this instance. As someone pointed out, he's been given the Sean Bean role.

Less said the better. The loss of Axanar still hurts.

Yet another different uniform.

And yes – it looks MUCH more like JJDrek than anything even slightly related to classic Star Trek.

Where he shows his rank?

I don't care for the uniform at all

Pretty sure I saw it in a Run-DMC video…

The loss of Axanar still hurts.

By the accounts of some involved in the project, the 20 minute teaser was the best it was going to get.

Discovery is not exciting me, but Axanar was still a case study in hubris.
