While fans wait for the upcoming series to arrive, the creators have been busy revealing stuff about it from time to time to keep them hyped up for it. Recently, it was revealed that some new actresses have been added to the cast of Star Trek: Discovery. And they are not some newcomers but are actually some big time actresses.

Emily Coutts Joins Star Trek: Discovery’s Cast 

The latest addition to the cast of Star Trek: Discovery is the girl from Crimson Peak, Emily Coutts. Currently, there is no word on what role she is going to play, but according to the IMDB page of the series, Emily will reportedly work as a Conn officer on the ship. Although we don’t know whether she is going to be a human or an alien, but she is definitely a great addition to the cast. And being a Conn officer isn’t something bad considering the fact that a Conn officer has always been an important part of the Star Trek franchise. George Takei and LeVar Burton have previously played the role of a Conn officer. Takei played the role of a Conn officer as Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series. Burton, on the other hand, played the role of a Conn officer named Geordi LaForge in Star Trek: Enterprise.

Star Trek: Discovery Release Date 

Star Trek: Discovery is currently expected to arrive in May 2017. The first season of the series will feature 13 episodes. Let us know if you’re excited about it or not in the comments below.

    As others have mentioned, in such a short article you managed to put a lot of incorrect information.
    Whether that’s due to ignorance, laziness, lack-of-professionalism – you really should try to perform better journalism/reporting otherwise, as mentioned, it comes off as “yet another hack internet blogger trying to get clicks”
    Which, of course, is likely the case…..

    Geordi LaForge in Star Trek: Enterprise? Even if Abdul Haddi has never watched a Star Trek episode, does he not know how to look on Wikipedia or IMDB to see that Burton was on Next Gen? If you don’t check your basic facts, how do you expect readers to take you seriously?

    Jean Luc Picard and the cast of TNG will be a hard act to follow.

      Even a bad Star Trek would be better than much of what is on TV to watch…No?

    Other reports say Michelle Yeoh is a captain of another ship, not the Discovery.

    • Laven Pillay

      I think you’re correct – because they’ve been touting Sonequa as the Lead Character, not Michelle. Between that and the Levar Burton/TNG-Enterprise mistake, this article has some terrible reporting right here.
