While there will undoubtedly be more roles cast in the days to come for Star Trek: Discovery, especially the show’s much talked about ‘Number One’ female lead, rumored to be of Hispanic or African American heritage; it is nice to see the first roles cast to be very diverse.
A female Captain, a new alien species and of course the franchises second but in some ways first, openly gay character is a great beginning for a show that is supposed to be about the celebration and embracing of humanity’s differences. Make it so Discovery!
