Star Trek Beyonds Wildcard

This week Star Trek director Justin Lin is planning some reshoots with the 3rd instalment of the rebooted "Abramsverse" movies, Star Trek Beyond. The good news is Iranian actress Shohreh Aghdashloo is joining the ranks of Starfleet's finest but what role does she play?

Fans will remember her from Rosewater, Xmen, Last stand, 24 or House of Sand and Fog. To date she won an oscar nomination and took home an Emmy for supporting actress in 2009. So whats the expose on Shohreh? We hear you ask. Well rumor has it shes important. We don't know her name yet, but shes got a seat of power at the Federation's High Command, now that gotta count for something! Personally I love the idea of having a powerful female in charge.


Will she be snarky and fierce like Fleet Admiral Alynna_Nechayev who bossed Riker around in Star Trek TNG Chain of Command P1 or something else?  If Shohreh Aghdashloo (Characters Name Unknown) ordered the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 to obliterate the swarm of alien spacehips then Captain Kirk must be pardoned for wrecking the bloody ship again!

But does she give the order? What do you think?

Which of these "Captains orders" grabs your fancy? 

1. Ahead Warp factor One or
2. Engage!!! Warp Nine!

“Star Trek Beyond,” hits movie theatres on July 22nd.

Snarky Long and Prosper, Trekkers.

Order the Second. Of course.

I think a kick ass female in a powerful role is perfect as long as she doesn't become evil or needs to be saved by some man. Go warp nine!

IMDB says she's High Command, which means she's in charge. Hopefully not as snarky mean as Nechayev though.
And engage!

#2, of course.

I love that actress. She is a strong actor, so I expect she will take charge, and she won't be snarky. She can use her eyes to put someone in their place.

You are also forgetting the Beavis and Butthead commands.
"Number one, I order you to take a number two."


"Fire the retro-rockets, shoot the fruton torpedeos and like, ehhhh, make us go that way."

It will be interest to find out what her role is.

Excellent addition to the cast. I saw her most recently in The Expanse.

Looks like a great addition! I am going with order #2. :)
