In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, star of the new Star Trek Discovery show, Sonequa Martin Green debunked what many had thought from the first trailer was true; she is not half Vulcan.

Rather, she is the first human to attend the Vulcan academy and has close ties to Sarek, Spock’s father.

quoting;

I’m the first officer on the U.S.S. Shenzhou that is captained by Captain Philippa Georgiou, who is played by the amazing Michelle Yeoh. I have an inner war and it’s a journey of self discovery and finding out what it means to be alive, to be human, to be a Starfleet officer, what it means to be a hero.

I have the Vulcan conflict in my life from Sarek and Amanda so there’s always going to be that inner conflict with me. But I think it’s relatable because we all have some kind of inner conflict going on — who we are versus who we present ourselves to be. There’s a lot to be discovered.”

Star Trek: Discovery beams aboard this September on Netflix.
