Star Trek’s Jonathan Frakes Praises Sonequa Martin-Green, And Explains Why He’s Thankful He Didn’t Know About Discovery’s Cancellation While Directing Penultimate Episode


Star Trek: Discovery is ending with the fifth season’s swan song, and few were as vocally upset about the initial cancellation news as frequent episode director, Jonathan Frakes. The Riker portrayer went on the record with CinemaBlend at the time to say Disco‘s cancellation sucked (preach), and part of his take was possibly tied to realizing his time with star Sonequa Martin-Green was ending, at least here. Frakes sang the actress’ praises to us, and so revealed why he was grateful he didn’t know he was directing one of Discovery‘s final episodes when it filmed.

Though “Lagrange Point,” available to stream now with a Paramount+ subscription, wasn’t originally intended to be the penultimate episode of the series, things played out that way in time. During my latest talk with the Star Trek icon about his experience on the episode, I first asked Frake what it was like working with star Sonequa Martin-Green over the years:

She comes prepared. Not only does she have her talent and her humor, but she has a spiritual presence that permeates the set. Her kindness is authentic, and it is shared with both sides of the camera up and down the line. And I think if you talk to anybody in the company, you’ll find the same thing is true about her. She is authentic in a way that many actors, as you probably know, aren’t.
