Loads of new Discovery behind the scenes footage

CBS have released two new behind the scenes videos today, revealing all sorts of new details about Discovery. Continue below to check them out, and all the other latest Discovery news.

First up, we have a general look at the series' production values, highlighting the sets and location work, as well as showing a few new shots from the show, and, a tribble! (See alternate Youtube if you can't see the region locked offical one below)

The second video focuses on Michael Burnham and her Vulcan background, including our first look at her Vulcan-look, and an interesting note that the series is a sort of coming-of-age story for her (also available on another Youtube for those region locked).

StarTrek.com have also posted an interview with Doug Jones (Saru), and Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler). We got a brief description of Latif's still mysterious character:
...he's a POW. We explore PTSD. There's a relationship with Burnham, and there's chemistry there. I know you already know these things. That's as much as I can sort of say, really.
Jones also gave a lovely description of Saru:
The best analogy in nature would be a gazelle. I'm kind of like a gazelle in the forest. When there's a lion about, I'm in danger. I could get chased down and eaten. When I'm among my pack, or my people, or my type, we have our moments where we're chewing on something green and at peace. But with the constant sixth sense, that animal instinct, that danger's afoot, I have to aware of that. So, I'm kind of born into a world where I'm always looking over my shoulder, yes. But, that's just kind of a part of who I am. Knowing true peace, where you don't have to worry about any threat at all, is not something that Saru is akin to. He doesn't know that. There's one episode that will explore that in more detail, which is really a fun one.
Star Trek: Discovery is due to start in a few days time, and it will be distributed almost everywhere in the world on Netflix, except for the US where is will be available on CBS All Access, and Canada where it will be on Bell Media channels and services.
