Isaacs and Wiseman join a cast that already includes Sonequa Martin-Green as Lieutenant Commander Rainsford, Doug Jones as Saru, Anthony Rapp as Stamets, Terry Serpico as Starfleet’s Admiral Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as Nambue, Sam Vartholomeos as Connor, Shazad Latif as Kol, Chis Obi as T’Kuvma, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, Michelle Yeaoh, and James Frain as the father of Spock, Sarek.
