San Diego Comic-Con International officially kicked off on Wednesday and one of the items on display is the Klingon “Torchbearer” suit from Star Trek: Discovery.
Designed by Neville Page and Glenn Hetrick, the suit was brought to life by 3D Systems and Gentle Giant. While the Torchbearer’s role on Discovery is still unclear, it’s safe to assume they will be no friend of Sonequa Martin-Green’s character Michael Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery.
Check out the detailed photos of the suit (via Brad Gullickson for TrekNews.net) below.
In addition to Star Trek: Discovery, Page has worked as a concept designer on such notable films as Super 8, Watchmen, Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness, TRON: Legacy, and Avatar. He has also served as a judge on the SyFy television series Face Off.

Berg, Aaron Harberts, Heather Kadin, and Akiva Goldsman. The panel will be moderated by Discovery guest star Rainn Wilson.
