Fans at San Diego Comic-com were treated to a sneak-peek clip from the upcoming final season of Star Trek: Discovery during the Paramount+ Star Trek universe presentation. The show features Sonequa Martin-Green as Captain Burnham and Season 5’s newest cast members Callum Keith Rennie as Rayner, Elias Toufexis as L’ak, and Eve Harlow as Moll.
