"The new captain brings their own set of everything," said Sonequa Martin-Green ("Michael Burnham"). She also pointed out how the actor has the opportunity to bring something unique to Discovery's iteration of the legendary franchise.

"He has that cocky, confident demeanor about him," observed Wilson Cruz ("Dr. Hugh Culber").

"He's kind of a superstar, I think," confirmed Mary Wiseman ("Sylvia Tilly"). "He's, like, the dude, so I think it's exciting."
