Kenneth Mitchell, who has space experience as a survivor of The Astronaut Wives Club, will join the crew of the USS Discovery as announced by CBS All Access. The show has been getting a lot of negative press lately, with fans disappointed at the lack of revelations and the continued delays.

The vocal critics of Star Trek Discovery will no doubt be incensed as the producers have announced a slight reshuffle in the cast and many will see this as firm evidence that the show is in trouble. Shazad Latif was originally cast as Kol, the Klingon commander, but this position has now been given to Mitchell. Mitchell has also starred in popular television shows Jericho and Frequency. Latif now moves into a newly revealed role, Starfleet Lieutenant Tyler.

Battlestar Galactica alumni, Rekha Sharma, has been cast as Commander Landry, the security officer for the USS Discovery. Damon Runyan and Clare McConnell have been added to the growing list of Klingons on the show, their characters names being Ujilli and Dennas.

Release date?

Not a chance. CBS insist it will be on the air this year, but the original date of May is obviously not going to happen. There isn’t much to cheers about at the moment, with Bryan Fuller leaving the show, dodgy looking Klingon shots being released and constant delays on the release. The producers really need to pull something out of the bag now, as fans are starting to turn their backs on the show.

  1. Bless their hearts. I had high hopes, but since Leslie Moonves, CEO of CBS started meddling in this production, Discovery has turned into a slow-motion wreck of a shit train.

  2. Sell the rights for Star Trek to Netflix and let them do it right. Why because they care and will actually do a great job of it


  3. Since the show has already been presold for the rest of the world to Netflix they might has well put someone else in charge. Moonves has made a mess of this.


  4. Heck, I “turned my back on the show” when this uniquely American phenomenon was announced to be produced in Canada, and the one producer who had any ties to past Star Trek series was bounced. There are slim odds I will ever watch this show if it ever makes it to air. And don’t call me a “fair-weather fan” either: the first episode I saw was NBC’s summer re-run of “Balance of Terror” and my favorite ST series is Deep Space Nine.


  5. It’s looking less and less that this die-hard Trekker will even bother to turn in to the premiere, let alone watch the series. So disappointing.


  6. This show was due to fail as soon as it was put on pay per view. I’m not paying a monthly fee just to watch a show when I already pay high prices for cable. Just another attempt to make money in my opinion.


  7. This new series has all the signs of a red shirt on an away team.
    CBS will stand for Completely Botched Series!!
