Well then you're in luck! She's not going to be a Captain. She's a Lt Commander, which is apparently the POV that the series being told from. Lifted straight from Wiki:Wide And Nerdy wrote:Andrew wrote:Ha.Daemian Lucifer wrote:And for us who dont watch the show,is she black janeway or female sisko?
If she plays it like her WD character then she's neither.
She'd be more of a mix between Lt Torres and Ensign Sato. Sato for the blank, introspective, stares and Torres for the occasional emotional outburst and general sullenness when things don't go her way.
I hope not. That doesn't sound like a good Captain. Reboot Kirk was bad enough.
The lieutenant commander of the USS Discovery, referred to as "Number One". The decision to not make the series' protagonist a starship captain, like those of previous Star Trek series, was made "to see a character from a different perspective on the starship—one who has different dynamic relationships with a captain, with subordinates, it gave us richer context". The decision to call her Number One was made in honor of the character of the same name portrayed by Majel Barrett in the original Star Trek pilot "The Cage". The character was initially pitched to CBS as only being called Number One in the series.
Surely, though, that calling her Number One is going to invoke memories of Riker and not some random character from one episode of the original series...
