Rebecca Romijn cast in Star Trek Discovery - X-Men Hollywood Sensation

Heres Captain Christopher Pike from Star Trek the classic series resurrected for 13 episodes of the New CBS/Netflix show, Star Trek Discovery... big news in trekverse right?

Well... until CBS decided to cast X-Men Hollywood star, Rebecca Romijn to take over as second in command of the USS Enterprise NCC1701. So which is the bigger news?

Bet a lot of fantasies are running wild now....

Originally this role was Majel Barretts whose long black shiny hair and geeky voice wasn't a smash in the 1st pilot.... so she became the lovely Christine Nurse Chapel with blonde hair! No-one will ever notice she said, as she dazzled executives (with dyed blonde hair) and  mysteriously appeared before Star Trek  creator/ husband Gene Roddenberry who was amazed.

Will CBS recast the original Mr Spock with a digital recreation?

Who are you looking forward to seeing first in Star Trek Discovery? 

1. Rebecca Romijn
2. Mr Spock (digital recreation)
3. Captain Christopher Pike
4. Mr Spock (played by an actor)

Live Long and Prosper, trekkers.

Oh, I hope they cast a Spock and don't do a digital recreation. Those are just creepy.

At least Majel got to wear her real hair color for TNG.

I liked Majel Barrett as the second in command but she was probably too strong a female for the series. just cast another Spock no digital-you can`t go back.

There's no good reason not to recast Spock. The role already has a life beyond the actor in the films. So it should continue.

It's great that they're finally going to bring in Number One. The original buzz for the series suggested that Michael Burnham was in fact Number One. Obviously things changed.
