Discovery casting of Sonequa Martin-Green finally confirmed!

At last CBS have confirmed the long rumoured casting of Sonequa Martin-Green as the lead character in Star Trek: Discovery. As previously rumoured she will play a first officer, but the new announcement comes with a new name for her character, Michael Burnham (rather than the previously rumoured Rainsford).


Martin-Green comes to Discovery after a long-running role in The Walking Dead. Other significant roles to her name include parts in Once Upon a Time, and The Good Wife.

In other Discovery tangents, writer and producer Ted Sullivan has been tweeting lots of images of props and reproductions of things from previous Star Trek shows he has had the good fortune to encounter due to be involved in the production. Here are a few of the highlights:









Star Trek: Discovery is due to start some time this year, it will be distributed almost everywhere in the world on Netflix, except for the US where is will be available on CBS All Access, and Canada where it will be on Bell Media channels and services.
