Listen to our conversation with Martin-Green and Star Trek: Discovery creator Alex Kurtzman below:
“Everything I had to learn as Burnham and all the healing inwardly and accepting of inner self before I sat down in that seat, it’s really amazing,” Martin-Green says. “It makes the fact that this is a historical moment.”
“Burnham has learned how to confront herself, but truly, no human is without flaw,” she adds.
Kurtzman, in also detailing how the writers “blew Burnham apart” unlike other Star Trek captains before her, also lays out the future of Paramount’s sci-fi franchise.
