Star Trek: Discovery is adding some more cast.
Though the CBS All-Access drama is currently shooting its debut season, there’s apparently a few more significant roles that haven’t been revealed yet.
First up is Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock, Weeds) who plays Dr. Nambue, the Chief Medical Officer of the Starship Shenzhou (that’s the ship captained by Michelle Yeoh’s character).
Terry Serpico (Army Wives) will play Admiral Anderson, a high-ranking official of Starfleet.
Sam Vartholomeos (The Following) will play Ensign Connor, a Junior Officer in Starfleet Academy assigned to the Starship Shenzhou.
This new iteration of the series arrives 50 years after Star Trek first beamed into living rooms and promises “the same ideology and hope for the future.” Discovery is set before the events of the original series and stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Doug Jones, and James Frain as Spock’s father, Sarek.
Star Trek: Discovery has been ordered for 13 episodes which were recently pushed back from their May premiere date. Discovery is likely to debut either this fall or early 2018 on CBS with all subsequent episodes available on the network’s digital subscription service, CBS All Access.
