With Captain Burnham out on an important away mission to Trill within the newest episode of Star Trek: Discovery, “Jinaal,” the crew are left within the capable-if-presently-single-minded palms of their new first officer, Captain Rayner. Forward of the episode, I sat down to talk with actor Callum Keith Rennie about Rayner’s new position as second in command. As the brand new XO, Rayner is tasked with attending to know the crew on this episode, nonetheless, his precedence stays on Moll and L’ak.

Throughout his temporary conferences with every crewmember, Stamets delivered the revelation that the factor they’re after might very effectively be capable of deliver somebody again from the useless. When requested if that data altered Rayner’s motivation in any respect — he looks as if somebody whose misplaced folks — Rennie confirmed he is received tunnel imaginative and prescient for antagonists Moll and L’ak. He stated: “His factor is a Moll and L’ak. That is his factor: get the dangerous guys. That is it.

Whereas Rayner gave every crew member roughly 20 phrases to introduce themselves, Rennie felt that Rayner would have even fewer for himself. “I haven’t got 20 phrases,” he joked. “He is aware of full effectively that anyone saying something about themselves is one factor, and that ain’t actual. That is simply them speaking.” For Rayner, actions converse louder than phrases. Rennie defined:

“The participation otherwise you’re within the trenches and also you’re combating a battle, otherwise you’re overcoming one thing with somebody, you may study them. However somebody telling you about themselves, there’s nothing. That is simply details, and it’ll all the time be details till you do one thing with them, till you endure one thing with them, till you accomplish one thing with them. So, I haven’t got the 20 phrases. I’d simply say, “F— you, I’m not saying 20 phrases.””

Tilly received her second to place Rayner in his place in Episode 3, and when requested if that combative but understanding, connection will come again, Rennie confirmed that it “pops up just a few occasions.” Rennie additionally had excessive reward for his co-star. Of Mary Wiseman he stated, “Mary’s superb to be in a scene with, and she or he’s pleasant and nice. I am unable to say sufficient about her.” He went on to explaine Rayner’s fish out of water expertise. “However there’s the a part of me going, “Okay, grasp on. Let me get this straight: I am a commander of the Antares, after which I am going to assist Burnham as a result of they’re in a little bit of a disaster, after which swiftly I lose my job and I now need to hearken to different folks inform me what to do? Not cool.” [Laughs]

The Discovery crew will not actually get to know Rayner till they undergo a serious expertise with him. Rennie famous, “They have not been via a factor but. You don’t know what’s what… but.” Rayner needs to see who the crew is when it is do or die, Rennie defined, “Yeah, who’s gonna make the proper name? Who’s gonna give you the answer on the proper time beneath duress? Everybody’s a backseat driver till you are within the area.”
