Here's a quick rundown on Star Trek Discovery. New starships, new characters and new missions boldly exploring wild futuristic adventures and designs. You've probably heard the series will be distributed by CBS in 188 countries worldwide on CBS "ALL ACCESS" later this year, apparently. Thirteen episodes are in preproduction but when will CBS deliver? The crew of the USS Discovery NCC 1031 continues to grow with new faces. So let's see who's signed up.

Star Trek just wouldn't be the same without the Klingon Warrior Way right? We need strength, combat, and brave aliens with ridges, spiky teeth ready to leap into action.


"Each series is such a classic thing, but also such an innovative thing"

1. Claire McConnell is Deannas playing a leader in the Klingon Empire.

2. Damon Runyan is playing another Klingon "Ujilli" who is also a leader in the Klingon Empire.

3. Kenneth Mitchell is taking over as commanding Officer "Kol" in the Klingon Empire -

4. Shazad Latif was originally cast as Klingon "Kol" but he's been recast. Speculation has it, Latif is allergic to Klingon make-up. The latest is Shazad Latif stars as Lieutenant Tyler - a Starfleet Officer with unknown duties.


1. It's official Jason Isaacs is Captain Lorca commander of USS Discovery NCC 1031

2. Sonequa Martin-Green plays the "main character" First Officer Michael Burnham but who's really calling the shots?.

3. Doug Jones is playing Alien Science Officer Lt. Saru.

4. Newly announced Rekha Sharma plays Security Officer as Commander Landry. She previously starred in Battlestar Galactica, The 100, Star Trek Continues (Fan Film.)

5. Anthony Rapp stars as Science Officer Lt Stamets and Astromycologist. (Expert in Alien Fungus)

6. Mary Wiseman stars as Cadet Tilley in her final year at Starfleet Academy USS SHENZHOU. Double wowsers, doesn't she look great!

7. Michelle Yeoh is Captain Georgiou of the U.S.S. Shenzhou.

8. Maulik Pancholy plays the Chief Medical Officer Dr Nambue

9. Sam Vartholomeos plays a junior officer as Ensign Connor.

SENIOR OFFICER IN CHARGE OF THE DISCOVERY OR SHENZHOU IN STAR THE SECTOR. The UFP (2161) original founders included Vulcans, Andorians, Tellarites and Earthers.

10. Terry Serpico stars as Admiral Anderson.   SO WHO ELSE IS THERE?

11. Of course, braggadocious Harry Mudd! That's who... we sure can't forget cunning, crafty, Harry Mudd. Rain Wilson has this honor! Restoring Mudd's beloved character known for all his fast slim-shady wheeler-dealer tricks Roger C Carmel established in Star Trek classic timeline won't be easy, hehe. Then there are Mudd's dazzling women with all their vivacious curves, how he handles the smuggling trade in Star Trek Discovery along with the rest of his bag of tricks, only time will tell. So you decide!!!

Star Trek Discovery will attempt to draw upon ENTERPRISE and Star Trek Classic TV shows to give it a late Enterprise angle but early Classic Series appeal. 

Will any of these trek assets with new actors, new adventures sprinkled with classic characters produce a Star Trek show that you'll want to watch? 

What do you think? Do we need more Harry Mudd characters?

 Live Long and Prosper!

Still impressive they got Yeoh.
Jones might not need a lot of makeup.
Still curious why it's not on regular CBS.

James Pailly said...

I'm somewhat surprised by how large the main cast is going to be.

Truedessa said...

I would tune in out of curiosity.

'The sky is the limit'?
Yet another cliche bites the dust.

Susan Kane said...

I am impressed with the actors chosen.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I'd love to watch the series but I'm not sure we get CBS All Access.

I believe Star Trek Discovery will surprise a lot of viewers and Star Trek fans. It just needs believers right now from the fan faithful. Why its not on regular CBS is really down to CBS CEO Les Moonves who has stated that Star Trek is premium content. Moonves went on to say:

"Star Trek we could have sold anywhere. There was a bidding war within CBS because it is obviously a very valuable property. We also learned from Netflix. We put the other Star Trek series [on Netflix] and they did very well. They don’t share the information, but…we knew Star Trek did extremely well. They have a very loyal audience. We said “if we give them a good product, that they will come and they will pay for it. It will be special.” And that is how we look at CBS All Access.

Discovery will reach the UK because Netflix has underwritten the entire show making it very accessible and affordable hopefully right across the globe.

Damn, that's a big list of names. I only recognize about half, but the ones I do recognize, I'm impressed with. Especially that they got Michelle Yeoh. Very excited for this show.
