Star Trek: Discovery is less than one week away from returning with its fourth season on Paramount+, and only ET has the exclusive first look at Michael Burnham, who was promoted in the season 3 finale, in the captain's chair of the USS Discovery.

Burnham taking the lead of Discovery is groundbreaking for the Star Trek franchise, as she is the first Black, female captain in its 55-year history.
