Sure, we’ve all seen that promo where Anson Mount’s Captain Pike takes the helm of the Discovery as they investigate strange anomalies out in the galaxy, but a clip posted by the actor to his Twitter account has given this blogger a few goosebumps!
In the sixty second clip, Anson takes the centre seat of the Terran Empire constitution-class starship at Star Trek Las Vegas. The interactive display looks the part with 75% of the bridge built and featuring blinky lights, flashing panels and buttons galore.
The actor is visibly moved by the experience, taking in the sight around him as a few onlookers snap some quick photos.
“It’s crazy… it’s really crazy” The actor comments to himself as the camera pans around the detailed display.
Thank you to #STLV and to the amazing Trek family. What a welcome! I’ll NEVER forget this weekend. XOXOXOX @CreationEnt @cbsallaccess @startrekcbs @StarTrekRoom @StarTrekNetflix @SonequaMG @actordougjones @albinokid @shazad @marythechief @theresa_may @SirPatStew @wcruz73 pic.twitter.com/P3anJ0UxAO
