Star Trek: Discovery’s Ending Is “Gonna Be Gorgeous,” Bought Saru Actor Doug Jones To Tears

Doug Jones, who plays Captain Saru, said Star Trek: Discovery’s series finale brought him to tears during his panel on TrekTalks 3.

  • Doug Jones, who plays Captain Saru, describes the ending of Star Trek: Discovery season 5 as “gorgeous” and felt closure when he saw the epilogue during his ADR session.
  • Season 5 reshoots turned the finale into an ending for the entire series.
  • Intriguing possibilities for Captain Saru’s future include commanding the USS Voyager-J or becoming an Admiral, and he may have a romance with the President of Ni’Var. Saru is considered one of the best Star Trek characters and hopefully gets a deserving ending.

Doug Jones has seen the ending of Star Trek: Discovery season 5, and he says the series’ ending is “gonna be gorgeous” and brings “closure.” Jones plays Captain Saru in all 5 seasons of Star Trek: Discovery. Like everyone else on Discovery’s cast and crew, Jones was surprised when he was told season 5 would be the final season of Star Trek: Discovery. Reshoots commenced in spring 2023 to turn Star Trek: Discovery‘s season 5 finale into an ending for the entire series.

During Doug Jones’ Celebrity Spotlight panel at TrekTalks 3, which raised over $108,000 for the Hollywood Food Coalition, the popular Saru actor told the story of how he learned Star Trek: Discovery season 5 would end the series while he was on the Star Trek Cruise. Jones explained that he saw the epilogue that was filmed for Star Trek: Discovery‘s finale during his ADR (automated dialogue replacement) session, and he was “wiping tears” when he saw Discovery‘s ending. Read his quote and watch Doug’s TrekTalks 3 panel at the 7:51:02 time stamp below:

When I went back in to do my ADR voice looping for that final episode to clean up the dialogue and all, that we do for every episode, I asked the people in the booth, ‘Can you please play the entire epilogue for me so I can see how we end?’ And by the time it was done, I was doing this: wiping tears. I feel closure. That was great… [Discovery’s epilogue is] gonna be gorgeous.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 – Episode Titles For Final Season Revealed

Star Trek: Discovery only has 10 episodes left, and the titles for each season 5 episode, which is also the final season, have been revealed.

What Is Saru’s Future In Star Trek: Discovery Season 5

Discovery’s final season could be big for everyone’s favorite Kelpien Captain

Star Trek: Discovery season 5 premieres on Paramount+ in April, with the world premiere of Discovery‘s final season set for March at SXSW. A plot synopsis for Star Trek: Discovery‘s season 5 premiere, “Red Directive,” which is written by showrunner Michelle Paradise, teases a big change for Captain Saru:

Captain Burnham & the Discovery are sent to retrieve a mysterious 800 year-old Romulan vessel; until the artifact hidden inside is stolen, leading to an epic chase. Meanwhile, Saru is offered the position of a lifetime, and Tilly’s efforts to help pull her into a tangled web of secrecy.

Intriguing possibilities for “the position of a lifetime” offered to Captain Saru could be command of the USS Voyager-J, or perhaps a promotion to Admiral. Saru also has a romance with T’Rina (Tara Rosling), the President of Ni’Var. Could a wedding or an Ambassadorship be in Saru’s future? As one of the best Star Trek characters introduced in the last 20 years, Captain Saru is perhaps the heart and soul of Star Trek: Discovery and Doug Jones’ reaction to the series’ epilogue hopefully means Saru gets the ending he deserves.
