Sonequa Martin-Green’s Star Trek: Discovery Character Has a Unique, Intriguing Name

sonequa martin-green

If you’re a fan of both Star Trek and The Walking Dead, it’s likely that, up until now, you’ve been wondering how they’d handle Sonequa Martin-Green’s character on one to make way for the other. Now that this question has been answered with relation to The Walking Dead, the name and rank of her character on Star Trek: Discovery has been revealed.

As reported by Shadow and Act, Sasha on The Walking Dead .

Now, Martin-Green is freed up to play her character on Star Trek: Discovery: First Officer Michael Burnham.

Yup, her name is Michael, which can sometimes (though rarely) be a woman’s name. I’m very curious why they went this route, and I’m wondering if it will be explained on the show.

While we don’t know much else about the show (including a premiere date), we do know that it will take place about 10 years before the Original Series. Star Trek: Discovery will act like a bridge between it and Star Trek: Enterprise, which in the Prime Timeline takes place a little over a century before.

Are you looking forward to watching Star Trek‘s latest first officer in action?
