Another Star Trek: Discovery panel took place at Fan Expo Canada 2018, and one of the topics concerned Spock.
In attendance at the panel were Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, and Anson Mount.
Martin-Green is looking forward to Spock and delving into Sarek and Amanda’s family dynamics. “It’s incredible,” she said. “I just think it’s genius to have us be set where we are, ten years before TOS, and to have Burnham be connected to that institution that is the family of Sarek and Amanda and Spock. I just am so appreciative of it. It’s so full. It’s so full; it’s wrought with everything. And then I end up being two degrees separated from Captain Pike and that’s really interesting too, to be able to have that sort of connection to the canon. I really loved that because one of the things we are doing in our iteration, on Star Trek: Discovery, is being our own thing, but also keeping that connection with us in the canon and having that connective tissue. So, I really appreciate it, and it is juicy!”
