Rebecca Romijn has released the first photo of her character Number One from season 2 of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery via her Instagram. The image doesn’t reveal much about the character, but the actress is obviously having a blast, writing, “Going for the gold! What an honor.” Check out the picture below!
Number One was a character who figured into the original 1966 Star Trek pilot who served as Captain Christopher Pike’s second-in-command on the USS Enterprise. The original Number One was played by Star Trek creator Gene Roddeberry’s wife Majel Barrett-Roddeberry.
Star Trek: Discovery is about the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. In the end of the season one finale, it showed that the Discovery has finally encountered the USS Enterprise.
