Star Trek Discovery casts Spock's Father, also Spock's father is on the show

18 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | | See recent JoBlo news »

Star Trek: Discovery adds James Frain as Spock’s father, premiere date delayed

18 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

CBS’ upcoming new series Star Trek: Discovery has added a new member to its cast, this time in the form of a previously-established character in the Star Trek canon: Sarek, the father of the U.S.S. Enterprise’s famous Vulcan science officer, Mr. Spock.

According to EW, Sarek will be played by character actor James Frain, known best for his roles in television series like Orphan Black, Gotham, True Blood, and True Detective. There’s no word yet on how Sarek will factor into Star Trek: Discovery, though he’s cited as having a “key role.” We know that he’s not a member of Starfleet, instead acting as the Vulcan ambassador to the United Federation of Planets, so perhaps the Discovery crew spends some extensive time dealing with the famous alien species. The role of Sarek has been played previously by three actors: Mark Lenard, Jonathan Simpson, and Ben Cross. »
