10. Person walking down a hallway
She is very determined, diligent, and mysterious. I really hope they take these traits and expand on them, perhaps having her do her classic ‘brisk walk’ in other parts of the ship or even various planets.
9. Ensign Connor
One of our favorite characteristics in Ensign Connor is that he perfectly represents a feeling I often have, which is a dislike of loud noises. I’m glad this is getting representation in Discovery, as it has been a staple of Trek. He also plays a key role in seeing little Klingon symbols on a computer screen, a defining moment in Star Trek: Discovery, presumably.
He’s kind of gross, but he has a cool trick where his head comes out of his hood, which is very important to us.
7. Guy With Thing On Head #1
This character’s main strength is his powerful gaze at something. He really gazes the hell out of it. It’s unclear what his cool head-wear is for, but I hope someone tells him that it’s not quite on straight.
6. Guy With Thing On Head #2We gotta say, it was a tough call between Guy With Thing On Head #1, and Guy With Thing On Head #2. This one’s kinda blue though, so he wins for now.
5. This Robot
Sometimes a problem I have with robots is their inner thoughts and feelings are difficult to read, but with this robot-thing, it looks like it’s clearly displayed on its face.
It’s good ol’ Sarek!
3. Lt. Saru
He’s a cool looking alien and has some kind of death spider-sense. We aren’t sure yet if that’s a good weird idea or a bad weird idea, but one thing we’re certain of is that Saru is our third favorite character.
2. Captain Georgiou
Ok, for real though, she’s awesome already.
1. Michael Burnham
She stand, she walks, she thinks they should fire weapons first; Lt. Commander Burnham has it all. Plus, she has something to do with Vulcans? Who knows / who cares, we have all we need to definitively say she is the best character on Star Trek Discovery.
