First Look At Jason Isaacs As Captain Lorca In Star Trek: Discovery

We’ve been dying to hear about the titular ship of the newest Star Trek series: the Discovery.

The shots of ship interiors that we saw in the CBS All Access series trailer were of the USS Shenzhou where First Officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) serves. So the bridge of the USS Discovery remains a mystery as does its captain, Gabriel Lorca played by Jason Isaacs.

Yes Harry Potter fans, consider this the Star Trek crossover you’ve been waiting for.

Entertainment Weekly has released the first photo of Lorca in his chair on the titular ship. He does look very stern. According to the website, he’s a brilliant tactician.

We haven’t seen Lorca in action though. I will say that Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou is a freaking boss though. Hopefully, in Discovery, you don’t get to Captain by being a yes man.

Star Trek: Discovery premieres on Sept. 24th.
