Are you a fan of the sci-fi series?

Speaking about Michael's journey in season three, Sonequa Martin-Green told Trek magazine: "Coming back [to Discovery], it’s tough to come back. Surprisingly, Shockingly. It’s tough to come back, and to come back to the rigidity that I once knew, that was once home to me. I’ve gotten to live in a world where things are looser. I’ve gotten to feel what that feels like. So, It’s interesting because it’s not an easy transition back to the crew."
