Star Trek Discovery - season 2 cast

Star Trek: Discovery won’t be back in orbit on CBS All-Access until 2019, but the second season has already made news by casting Spock. Ethan Peck is going to portray the character in his earlier years and will, of course, help his sister Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), their father Sarek (James Frain) and the Discovery crew figure out what’s going on with the U.S.S. Enterprise.

“We searched for months for an actor who would, like [Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto] bring his own interpretation to the role. An actor who would, like them, effortlessly embody Spock’s greatest qualities, beyond obvious logic: empathy, intuition, compassion, confusion, and yearning,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman, according to Variety. “Ethan Peck walked into the room inhabiting all of these qualities, aware of his daunting responsibility to Leonard, Zack, and the fans, and ready to confront the challenge in service of protecting and expanding on Spock’s legacy. In that spirit, we’re thrilled to welcome him to the family.”

I’m so excited for Peck’s turn as Spock. I think, just as the character has done in the past, he will positively affect the viewers and how they feel about race relations, xenophobia, and honoring others’ humanity. In fact, I think the combination of both Spock and Michael allows the show the potential to dive deep into some very serious allegories for the types of issues biracial/multiracial people and transracial adoptees face when it comes to recognizing and owning their identities.
