No word yet on who will play the iconic character. Leonard Nimoy, who originated the role back in 1964, passed away in 2015. Zachary Quinto currently plays the part in the current film franchise, so he seems an obvious choice. But, Discovery is set a decade before The Original Series, so they may opt for a younger actor.
Star Trek: Discovery will return in early 2019, but four short films will be released in the fall to tide fans over.
