So it turns out the Captain in the hotly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery is none other than Lucius Malfoy, dastardly death eater and Voldermort crony. Or it’s the actor that played him Jason Isaacs, though of course that doesn’t sound quite as entertaining.
Either way though the show’s official Twitter account has now confirmed the casting of Isaacs as Captain Lorca, the leading man aboard the U.S.S. Discovery.
It also revealed that actress Mary Wiseman will be along for the journey as a Starfleet cadet named Tilly.

Unlike previous incarnations of the franchise though we actually won’t be spending most of our time with Isaacs. This time around the main character aboard the ship is a lieutenant commander under Isaacs’ command who will be played by Walking Dead actress Sonequa Martin-Green.
According to Isaacs’ Twitter account, he’s eager to take to the helm of the latest Starfleet ship.
Starting in May 2017, Star Trek: Discovery will hit CBS All Access in the US and Netflix in Europe. Not much longer to wait then fellow Trekkies, bring it on!
