WeeklyTrek #109: Star Trek Discovery Season 3 Casting Breaks New Ground
Originally released on September 07, 2020
Listen to the show :
Alex is joined by Rob Chapman (@TrekkieRob) to discuss the news that Star Trek Discovery season three has added the franchise's first non-binary and transgender actors in roles on the series. In addition, we talk about the expected return in Discovery of a fan favorite actor, CBS's big plans for Star Trek Day, and new Star Trek Wines. All that, and Alex's most outlandish theories for what kind of announcements we might get for Star Trek Day! (There is no spoiler discussion of Lower Decks in this week's episode.)
Alex Perry is a lifelong Star Trek fan who enjoys the show in all of its incarnations. Distraught when Enterprise left the air in 2005, he's excited about the emerging new golden age of Star Trek that we're seeing right now. As host of WeeklyTrek, he's excited to bring you the latest news in the Star Trek universe, with all the appropriate context. English by birth, Alex lives in Washington, DC with his wife and cat.
