Ahead of the Sunday premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, CBS has revealed the titles of the first four episodes of the franchise's television revival.
In the premiere episode, "The Vulcan Hello," the crew of the Shenzhou will make a startling discovery in space, which leaves Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin) torn between her duties as first officer. The episode title seems to hint at the main character's connections to the Vulcans: Burnham was a human raised by a Vulcan father -- Sarek, who's also the father of Spock.
