“Star Trek Discovery” Premiere – Photos From the Blue Carpet

Star Trek: Discovery world premiere in LA

Star Trek Discovery World Premiere

I was invited by CBS to attend the world premiere of Star Trek: Discovery in Los Angeles.  Rather than opt for the press box, which can be a fast-paced whirlwind, I chose to stay off to the side and take photos of the stars as they arrived at the blue carpet.

One by one the guests arrived to reveal a huge number of not only Discovery cast but also plenty of Star Trek veterans from shows past.  It was a blast to watch the premiere with the stars, producers and showrunners, and some of the biggest Star Trek fans you’ll find.

First up, early in the day I had a chance to photograph this group of women.  It wasn’t clear to me if they were fans or part of the overall event, but they did end up right at the end of the blue carpet later in the day.

No cameras or recording devices were aloud into the movie theatre, so from here on there are no additional pictures except this one that I took just after the movie let out.
