After a series of delays which has seen the upcoming 'Star Trek' series abandon its planned launch date, it finally looks like production is set to jump to warp speed.


According to Deadline, 'Harry Potter' and 'The Patriot' star Jason Isaacs has been cast as Captain Lorca for the upcoming series, joining other legendary 'Star Trek' captains such as Picard, Kirk, and Janeway.

Set 10 years before the events of the original series, 'Star Trek: Discovery' is set to premiere 13 episodes on the CBS All Access platform in the U.S. and on Netflix in other territories later in the year.
