Star Trek: Discovery has added James Frain to the cast. If you don’t know the name, you will know the face as he is been in so many TV shows and films.

Frain will star as Sarek, the famed father of Spock. First introduced in the original Star Trek, “Sarek” has made multiple appearances throughout the franchise over the last five decades.

Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha on The Walking Dead) has been cast as the show’s central character. The role is that of a Lieutenant Commander.

She joins Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou, the Starfleet Captain aboard the Starship Shenzhou; Doug Jones (Hellboy, Falling Skies) will play Lt. Saru, a Starfleet Science Officer and a new alien species in the Star Trek universe; and Anthony Rapp (Rent, Road Trip) was cast as Lt. Stamets, an “astromycologist,” fungus expert, and Starfleet Science Officer aboard the Starship Discovery.

There have also been three Klingon characters cast in the show – Chris Obi (Roots) as T’Kuvma, a leader seeking to unite the Klingon houses; Shazad Latif (Penny Dreadful), who will play Kol, a Klingon Commanding Officer, and protege of T’Kuvma; and the newcomer Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, the Battle Deck Commander of a Klingon ship.

Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered with STAR TREK: DISCOVERY. The series will feature a new ship, new characters, and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.
