Star Trek Discovery has its lead

Sonequa Martin-Green in The Walking Dead
The cast of Star Trek: Discovery is forming rapidly. After recent casting announcements for several Starfleet and Klingon characters, CBS were apparently still searching for the lead; looking for a black of latina actress to fill the role. Entertainment Weekly now report that search has ended, with Sonequa Martin-Green set to star.

Martin-Green has already had significant roles in several other series, including The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, and The Good Wife.

Star Trek Discovery's Klingon cast revealed, and other updates

Hot on the heals of the recent casting announcements for several Starfleet characters in the new Star Trek TV series, Discovery, CBS have now revealed a trio of actors set to play Klingons on the series

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this announcement is the implication that Klingon characters will have a leading role in the series, which coupled with the mention of at least two Starfleet ships in the character profiles for the Starfleet characters, might suggest a very varied multi-ship/location setting for the new series.

As with the previous announcement, CBS have released short descriptions for each character, giving us a glimpse of the setting of the series:

Chris Obi will star as “T'Kuvma,” the Klingon leader seeking to unite the Klingon houses.

Star Trek Beyond complete soundtrack available now

Varèse Sarabande have released Star Trek Beyond: The Deluxe Edition, Michael Giacchino complete soundtrack for the movie. This release now comes as a bit of a surprise, as it comes much closer the the film than the extended soundtracks for the previous Kelvin timeline movies, which were released a year or more after the films.

A limited edition of 5000, the new expanded release features 47 tracks over two discs, including some beautiful new themes (especially those for Yorktown and Jaylah). I cannot wait for my copy to arrive! Continue below to check out the covers and track listing.

All the latest super-deformed Star Trek toys

The trend in super-deformed cartoon/caricature style toys shows now signs of slowing down, and in just the past few months the world of Star Trek toys has seen many new examples. Continue below to check out all the latest releases.

Just out from Funko, is the first Star Trek figure in their new Dorbz line. Like the long established Pop! vinyl range, Dorbz have a particular style that is used across the various licensees Funko have. This first beaming Spock figure is exclusive to GameStop, although I'm sure it's just a matter of time until a regular Spock comes along as part of a larger Star Trek Dorbz collection.
