Fan Expo 2017 and Star Trek Spoilers for Star Trek Discovery follows.

To get you for the September 24, 2017 series launch, below are some posters and character bios from Space.
Plus visit StarTrek.Com for some video bios for the characters too.
Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) is the USS Shenzhou’s First Officer—or Number One, as she’s known on the series. She’s human but has a Vulcan background, raised by Spock’s father, Sarek. Her exact relationship with Spock, however isn’t known…
If you thought Kirk was a bit wilds and Jean-Luc was a tactical genius, wait until you meet Captain Gabriel Lorca, says actor Jason Isaacs. He’s both…
Shenzhou Captain Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) is a mentor to Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham…
Lt. Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp)… studies space fungi professionally. More importantly for the show’s stated aim of embracing diversity, he’s the first openly gay character on a Trek TV series.
Shazad Latif’s character, Starfleet Lt. Ash Tyler, is a former POW with a dark and troubled past.
…Ambassador Sarek (played by James Frain in Discovery) is a younger version of the one Mark Lenard played in the very first series. As mentioned above, Sarek has some sort of fatherly relationship with Burnham.
Science Officer Saru (Doug Jones) fills the spot taken up by characters like The Next Generation’s Data, say the showrunners. His background is Kelpien, a new alien race introduced to the cannon just for Discovery.
…Cadet Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman), Burnham’s Shenzhou roommate.
L’Rell (Mary Chieffo)… [is] a Klingon Battle Deck Commander…
T’Kuvma (Chris Obi)… [seeks] solidarity among Klingons—because just imagine how powerful they’d be if all the houses were united.
Beyond a name, Voq is as much of a mystery to us as to you—there hasn’t been any word about who the character is or which actor is behind all that prosthetic makeup. Any theories…?
On top of that we also have news that Harry Mudd will be part of the cast according to StarTrek.Com.
Emmy Award-nominated actor Rainn Wilson has joined the cast of Star Trek: Discovery and he will play — are you ready? — Harry Mudd. Mudd, the charismatic conman and intergalactic criminal first introduced on Star Trek: The Original Series, is one of Trek’s most-popular characters.
Looks like fun.
