‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 5 snippet shows Burnham battling giant, invisible bugs

A new clip and new cast poster for the fifth and final season of “Star Trek: Discovery” was just released at the 2023 São Paulo Comic Con in Brazil.

Within the 60-second clip, we see “Star Trek” Captain Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Book (David Ajala) battling with giant insects that can seemingly make themselves transparent. And while we have no idea where this clip sits in the season, there’s no denying it has a somewhat familiar set-piece vibe to the one we saw in the Season 4 opening episode. There’s even a little dialogue inspired by “Lethal Weapon 2,” but then the writers on “Discovery” have liberally borrowed from other intellectual properties a number of times in the past.
