First Photo of Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca in STAR TREK: DISCOVERY
We've already seen an impressive trailer for CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery, but Jason Isaacs' character Captain Gabriel Lorca was nowhere to be seen. Thanks to EW, we now have our first look at the character sitting in his captain's chair. I really dig the look of the Starfleet uniforms in the series.
The character is described as "a steely Federation Starship Captain who’s considered a brilliant military tactician."
Star Trek: Discovery is set on a new ship and will follow new characters who embark on new adventurous missions while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. The trailer came with the tagline, "Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery".
The cast for the series also includes Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou, Doug Jones as science officer Saru, Anthony Rapp as fellow science officer Stamets, Terry Serpico as Starfleet admiral Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as chief medical officer Nambue, Sam Vartholomeos as junior Starfleet officer Connor, Mary Wiseman as Cadet Tilly, James Frain as Sarek, astrophysicist and father of Spock, Chris Obi as Klingon leader T’Kuvma, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, a Klingon commander, Shazad Latif as Lieutenant Tyler, Rekha Sharma as Commander Landry, Kenneth Mitchell as Kol, Clare McConnell as Dennas, Damon Runyan as Ujilli, and Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.
The series is set to premiere on September 24th, 2017.
