Star Trek Discovery Reveals Young Spock At NYCC (VIDEO)
Star Trek Discovery fans were given quite the treat at New York Comic-Con when they revealed a new trailer for the popular CBS series. Even more exciting was the debut return of a fan favorite character, Spock. The younger version of this character marks his return to the series.
Of course, the trailer features more than just Spock. The next story in the series continuation is ramping up to be intense, with incredible visual effects. See all the awesomeness yourself in the Star Trek Discovery trailer shown at New York Comic-Con below:
Alex Kurtzman, the Executive Producer for Star Trek Discovery, thought actor August Peck was the best fit for the role of Spock. Given that Discovery takes place 10 years before the original series, a younger actor makes sense. Here is what Kurtzman had to say about the role:
Through 52 years of television and film, a parallel universe and a mirror universe, Mr. Spock remains the only member of the original bridge crew to span every era of Star Trek. The great Leonard Nimoy, then the brilliant Zachary Quinto, brought incomparable humanity to a character forever torn between logic and emotion. We searched for months for an actor who would, like them, bring his own interpretation to the role.”
Fans won’t have long to see Peck in action, and the character tease says a lot in a brief moment. Fans can check out Star Trek Discovery on CBS All Access beginning January 17th, 2019. Be sure to keep up with Don’t Feed the Gamers as we continue to bring you all of your game and pop culture news!
