With several TV adaptations, an animated series, and a few movie sagas to its name, the Star Trek franchise has so many memorable moments for audiences. But which moments stick out to the cast of Star Trek: Discovery, the newest group expanding on the sci-fi brand’s universe?
For leading lady Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays First Officer Michael Burnham, one favorite moment happened in the original series: “The episode we see Sarek and Amanda for the first time…. ‘Journey to Babel’!” Her costar on the CBS All Access series, Shazad Latif, admits that as a kid, he loved Patrick Stewart on The Next Generation.
“I really, really love ‘Devil in the Dark’ the first time you see Spock mind-melt,” says Anthony Rapp, who plays Lt. Stamets. “It also speaks so much about Star Trek‘s compassion and humanity that’s at the core of it always.”
