“There are so many reasons to join Starfleet. We get to reach for the stars. We get to reach for the best in ourselves. But, most important, we get to reach for each other.” So says Michael Burnham in the episode “The Red Angel” of Star Trek: Discovery.
And now, Star Trek: The Cruise is thrilled to announce that Michael Burnham’s real-life counterpart, Sonequa Martin-Green, will join us on next year’s voyage. Anyone who has seen her engage with fans knows how warm and inspiring she can be, so it’s all the more exciting she’ll help guide us to “reach for each other” when the Star Trek world reunites at sea in 2022.
As Michael Burnham, we’ve watched her progress from mutinous commander to probationary specialist to captain. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for her aboard the cruise! Until then, click here to learn more about Sonequa Martin-Green’s journey from stage to screen to Star Trek: The Cruise V.
