The (Re)discovery of Sonequa Martin-Green

Sonequa Martin-Green’s role in the new Star Trek series ‘Discovery’ ushers in a new heroine for a new generation. That is if you ignore long enough the framing narrative to the grand narrative of this iconic space opera.

Sonequa Martin-Green sad exit from the #TheWalkingDead as Sasha Williams to be casted as Lieutenant Commander Michael Burnham in Star Trek: Discovery proves that when one door closes another one opens and sometime that door is filled with better opportunities. She holds her ground as number one to Michelle Yeoh cast as Philippa Georgiou Captain of the USS Shenzhou as the new narrative opens for the new Star Trek. Martin-Green’s convincing performance leaves no traces of Sasha Williams and she looks like she might just take the devoted trekkies where they have always wanted to go …beyond imagination (which can be translated as ‘to boldly go when no one has gone before’).

#MyRating > 3dEFPoints/5 (for now based on the first episode which proposes a myriad of possibilities for a new story)
