Five new members have just boarded Bryan Fuller's Star Trek: Discovery.
On Friday (April 28), CBS released another round of new cast members for the upcoming series, adding to Discovery's ever-growing cast.
The first is Shazad Latif, who will play Lieutenant Tyler, a Starfleet officer in the Federation – and if he sounds familiar, it may be because you've already seen him as Dr Henry Jekyll in Penny Dreadful.
Kenneth Mitchell (Ghost Whisperer) will play Klingon Empire commanding officer, while Clare McConnell and Damon Runyam (Degrassi: Next Generation) play Klingon Empire leaders named Dennas and Ujilli, respectively.
TV veteran Rekha Sharma (The 100) will also star as Commander Landry, the Discovery's security officer.
Previously confirmed for Discovery is Harry Potter and The OA's Jason Isaacs, who will star as Captain Lorca, while The Walking Dead actress Sonequa Martin-Green leads the cast as First Officer Michael Burnham.
Doug Jones (Hellboy), Anthony Rapp (Rent) and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) will also star.
The TV series is now filming, though just eight months after he was announced as showrunner, Bryan Fuller departed the project.
"With Star Trek, ultimately it was about not being able to do what CBS needed to be done in the time that they needed it done," he said. "I will miss doing Star Trek, but this is the best path."
