Star Trek: Discovery Adds Three Starfleet Officers

Sam Vartholomeos, Maulik Pancholy and Terry Serpico have been announced as the newest castmembers of Star Trek: Discovery. All three actors will play Starfleet Officers in the series, which is currently filming in Toronto.

Terry Serpico will play Admiral Anderson, a high-ranking Starfleet official. Serpico has previously been seen in The Departed, Rescue Me, Sneaky Pete, Elementary, The Purge: Election Year, Army Wives and 100 Centre Street.

Maulik Pancholy will play Dr. Nambue, the Chief Medical Officer aboard the Shenzhou. His credits include Weeds, Hitch, 30 Rock, Phineas & Ferb and The Good Wife.

Sam Vartholomeos will portray Ensign Connor, a Junior Officer in Starfleet Academy on board the starship Shenzhou. His credits include The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Following.

The trio join the already-announced cast of Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Rapp, James Frain, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif and Mary Chieffo.

Last week, CBS released a behind-the-scenes production trailer for the new show.

Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have been hired as co-showrunners.
