Jonathan Frakes – everybody’s favorite space dad – has given a new interview in which he turns his focus toward Star Trek: Discovery period 3.
Frakes is fresh off the high of Star Trek: Picard, in which he led a few episodes, and appeared in a few episodes. But now that Picard is finished, and season two looks a ways off, Frakes is currently focusing on the next series about the docket (we expect ): Star Trek: Discovery.
Frakes, who’s had his hand in acting in or directing a huge five Star Trek collection, directs three episodes of Discovery’s upcoming third period. About what fans can expect from the latest (and so far, farthest-in-the-future) setup of this franchise. It sounds as though, as played by Sonequa Martin-Green, the emphasis will continue to be on Michael Burnham. But the feel of this plot will probably differ.
“Michael Burnham has found a brand new core, not to mention a brand new partner in crime,” he explained. “There’s a large tonal shift on that series, driven less by the guilt and pain of her past and much more about the magical reunification of the Discovery team and wherever she went to.”
Frakes also gave some hints as to what fans may see in the storyline of the year. “God knows where she went as the Red Angel,” he said. “So those two things coming back together is very much the subject, and how grateful everyone is and what’s next. It has got lots of action-adventure and not so much pain.”
