Discovery Adds Three More Castmates
announced three more actors joining the cast. Sam Vartholomeos (first major role) is playing Ensign Connor while Maulik Pancholy (Sanjay and Craig) as Chief Medical Officier Dr. Nambue, both assigned to the USS Shenzhou. Terry Serpico (The Purge: Election Year) will play a high ranking Starfleet official. I suspect there will be more cast announcements considering it seems the story involves two starships (Discovery and Shenzhou) along with intrigue in Starfleet with outside enemies too. At this point it isn't clear who the core cast even is. As for when the show will premiere, CBS has not announced a new premiere date.
