‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Finally Has a Captain

The much delayed and long awaited return of Star Trek to television, Star Trek: Discovery, seems to have finally found someone to fill the USS Discovery’s Captain’s chair. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that none other than Jason Isaacs will take command as Captain Lorca when the series eventually premieres.

Of course, unlike previous installments in the Star Trek franchise, the captain isn’t the main character of Discovery, with the focus instead being on the first officer played by Sonequa Martin-Green. That said, the ship’s captain still needs to bring the weight one would associate with the lead, and I think Isaacs is a talented enough actor to bring that.

I guess we’ll all find out either way when Star Trek: Discovery premieres later this year.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
