    My first reaction: "Lucius Malfoy as the Captain!"

    But wait, wasn't it going to be a woman in charge...

    The star of the show is going to be played by Sonequa Martin-Green, but she was never going to be the captain. And they also announced that another ship will be captained by a character played by Michelle Yeoh. Maybe you're thinking of one of them?

    Mmm... the series is called Star Trek Discovery so Sonequa better have an important role if she's the star but not the captian... *ponders*

    I'm very curious to see how they're going to approach it, yeah.

    I'd much prefer Galen the technomage from Babylon 5 as the captain....he was hilarious in that role

    I don't mind the actor...I do mind the character. Sarek and now Mudd being brought back. Can't say I'm too happy.

    I never liked Mudd as a character either....curious as to what you have against Sarek though...seems to me like he never had much screen time as a character in all the star trek series combined to judge him one way or the other as a character...Mark Lenard though was an amazing actor I think....able to play both an enemy Romulan and a Vulcan ambassador who happened to be Spock's father

    I don't have a problem with Sarek. He was a great character and Mark Lenard was a superb actor! It's just that considering space is supposed to be infinitely full of different species and characters, there does seem to be an awful lot of run-ins with previously encountered species and characters. Space seems so small in Star Trek when familiars appear and in this instance with Mudd it starts to come across as fan service for fan service's sake. Okay, maybe I'm so much resistant to Sarek's appearance in ST: DSC as presumably he was the Vulcan Ambassador to Earth in 2255 and I can maybe understand his significance in the storyline but I do resist his recasting. I personally would have preferred a new character rather than recast an old one.

    course I'm picturing them trying to use the "Do this or your name's Mudd" on Harcourt Fenton Mudd and him being like "it's already Mudd"

    I liked Harry Mudd. I hope they do the role right.

    I know this isnt the right topic for it, but is this a late April's fools joke ?

    It's clearly nonsense. The name of the director should be a giveaway (not to mention everything else being utterly absurd).
