“Star Trek Discovery” – Lead Actress Picked

The lead actress for “Star Trek Discovery” has been cast and it’s Sonequa Martin-Green of “The Walking Dead” cast.  The talk goes that she will not be playing ‘the Captain’ but probably the First Officer of the main ship for this newest Trek show set to premiere this coming May.  I’m excited by this casting and she seems to be a solid actress from what I have seen on TV.  Other cast members are being locked in too as well.  The show seems to be centering a lot on the Klingons and a possible Klingon Civil War.  Time will tell if this new Trek series can live up to the others in the franchise.  I’m excited to see new Trek on TV after almost 12 years of only a few movies for Trek.
