In the season one finale of Discovery, we saw the Enterprise come into view in the final minutes. In that era, the ship would have been captained by Christopher Pike, and would've also included Spock and Number One.

In a thread back in February, I came up with a few suggestions for who might be interesting choices to play those characters. But I think that Mount also fits that bill, though I thought Inhumans was terrible, and didn't watch *H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks* On Wheels. What do you think?

Here's a bit more from io9:

    I appreciate the multiple spoiler warnings, because I couldn't resist clicking. After the first three I finally took the hint and stopped reading. :p

    Inhumans would have been better off as a movie like they had originally intended. Some of the actors did their best, but it was a hard series to keep going.

    That being said, I'd prefer an the Inhumans to hookup with SHIELD at some point, as I think those writers could use them as supporting cast effectively.

    Mount will do well as Pike... the fact he could do what he did in Inhumans without speaking showed some range.

    I just hope if SHIELD wants to go that direction that they aren't precluded from getting him back for a lil Black Bolt appearance by Discovery.

    Another bit of casting news — this one rather curious, imo: stand-up comic Tig Notaro has been cast as a Chief Engineer on the Federation ship Hiawatha.

    In the meantime, somewhere out there, someone is seeping with anger and disgust knowing that, while there are so many good American Civil War generals (or something) that don't have a Starfleet starship named after themselves, the social justice writers of Discovery went with a Native American chief.

    But these are very good news.

    Calling Hiawatha a "Native American chief" is a bit like calling Dr. Martin Luther King Jr a "minister": technically true, but not really related to his importance.

    That was hardly the point, but you are right.

    A couple of comparison pics — Jeffrey Hunter ≈ Anson Mount…

    And as for Spock? So far, we only know about a young version of him:

    Also dropping this article here, because although it isn't a perfect fit for the subject, I didn't want to start a whole new thread about it. ;)

    Some fans mentioned disappointment that Enterprise looked too different from the classic look. Well, turns out there was a legal reason for that:

    EDIT: Okay, now it appears this was never true.

    Tagging yet another semi-related post onto this thread rather than creating a new one. Discovery will apparently bring back TOS-style uniforms in season 2, according to a behind-the-scenes teaser:

    Haha — you can't delete posts. But you can edit them. So you can replace the "cat walking across your keyboard" gibberish with a Star Trek gif or something. :D
