Discovery StarfleetThe ranks of Starfleet are expanding in Star Trek: Discovery.

The CBS All Access series unveiled three new crew members Monday.

Sam Vartholomeos (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Following) will play Ensign Connor of the USS Shenzhou.

Maulik Pancholy (Weeds, Hitch, 30 Rock, Phineas & Ferb, The Good Wife, Sanjay and Craig) joins him on board the same ship as Dr. Nambue.

Outranking them, however, will be Terry Serpico (100 Centre Street, The Departed, Army Wives, Rescue Me, Sneaky Pete, Elementary. The Purge: Election Year) as Admiral Anderson.

Discovery still doesn’t have a release date, and no official confirmation of expected lead Sonequa Martin-Green. But the series recently started production and more information will no doubt be coming soon.
