Star Trek: Discovery S5 | Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise on Ending Strong for Final Season

It is close to nearing the end of the U.S.S. Discovery.

The crew under Captain Michael Burnham is on its final voyage as the universe again hangs in the balance in season five of Star Trek: Discovery.

Co-showrunners and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise have meticulously crafted a season-ending narrative that not only bids farewell to our beloved crew but also delves deep into the intricacies of their relationships, leaving us with a bittersweet yet satisfying conclusion.

Here is the official description of season five of Star Trek: Discovery:

The fifth and final season will find Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well…dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.

Star Trek: Discovery season five cast members include Sonequa Martin-Green (Captain Michael Burnham), Doug Jones (Saru), Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets), Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), David Ajala (Cleveland “Book” Booker), Blu del Barrio (Adira), and Callum Keith Rennie (Rayner). This season also has recurring guest stars Elias Toufexis (L’ak) and Eve Harlow (Moll).
