The voyages of the starship USS Discovery are about to boldly take a break. On Sunday, Star Trek: Discovery will air the final episode of its first season, and the stakes have never been higher for the Federation. New photos previewing the finale show Michael Burnham contemplating the United Federation of Planets, which teases an old-school Star Trek design.

No spoilers for the Discovery season finale ahead. Just official photos.

On Thursday, CBS released new promotional photos ahead of the season one Discovery finale, “Will You Take My Hand.” In them, Sarek makes a few appearances, as does Mirror Georgiou, rocking evil all black leather. But the image of Burnham contemplating the seal of the Federation is probably the most striking. Where is she? What is she thinking about? And, is that the same version of the Federation seal from old-school Trek? The answer is yes.

The United Federation of Planets is a futuristic combo of the United Nations and aspects of an idealized democratic republic. But, the general design for the seal, obviously comes from the United Nations. Here’s how the UN seal looks compared to the UFP seal, as seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

But, in the older Star Trek movies, before The Next Generation, the seal actually looked a little different, a design which Discovery appears to honor in this new scene with Burnham. Take a look at the seal in Discovery, next to the seal Kirk walks by in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

The Federation was created in Trek’s fictional history in the year 2161, which is right after the events of the prequel series Enterprise. However, before that, there was a kind of faux-Federation called the Coalition of Planets, which Captain Archer helped to create. The originally united planets during the time of the original series, and now, Discovery, include Earth, the planet Vulcan, Andor, Tellar Prime and handful of others. Though, by the 24th century of The Next Generation and beyond, there are a ton more. The different stars on the seal are thought to each represent a system that is part of the Federation, which is why there are more stars in the TNG era than in Discovery or the original series films.

So, what is Burnham thinking about in the finale of Discovery? The future of the Federation? And where is she exactly? All will be revealed soon. For now, here are a few more photos to get you pumped for the big final episode.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

David Tennant is once again playing a doctor, but this time, he’s not traveling through time and space in a big blue box. Now, he’s a scientist bringing mechs to a gunfight in the new Rooster Teeth animated series gen:LOCK. A new teaser trailer for the series prominently features Tennant voicing his new character Dr. “Doc” Rufus Weller for the first time.
