Discovery New Character Breakdowns

1 min read

Several characters for the second season of Star Trek: Discovery have been developed and one has been cast, and now fans can see what was put out for the casting call. Note: spoilers for Season Two.

Chief Engineer Reno of the USS Hiawatha will be played by Tig Notaro. Her breakdown was: “Female, between 25 and 45. Due to a physical situation, required to be in a wheelchair, despite this, they need to be extremely physically fit as this role will be demanding physically. Chief engineer Reno is high-energy and bordering on boisterous, she is happiest when she’s fighting a stubborn bolt, a real gearhead. Recurring role.”

Next up is a young boy who will be playing a Vulcan. The fake name given is Samuel but this is probably young Spock. “A ten-year old Caucasian male. A brave and logical Vulcan. Under 5’2″ and thin-faced. Latex prosthetics required. Must be immediately available for one-two episodes.”

Finally, another engineer is described as being named May. “A female in her twenties. A friendly engineering officer who shows real concern for others in the face of danger. Needs to be able to comfortably perform in a distinctive, non-American accent. Comedy chops a plus. All ethnicities. Recurring.”
