Sarek Will Appear in Star Trek Discovery


Spock’s father will have a place in Star Trek Discovery, as CBS has officially announced the casting of Sarek.

James Frain will play Sarek, father of Spock, on the CBS All Access streaming series that’s set in the “Prime” Star Trek universe about a decade before Kirk’s original five-year mission began. With them announcing Sarek’s casting, it’s likely the character will play a big part in the serialized story that the first season will tell.

James Frain becomes the third actor to play the Vulcan father of Spock following the late Mark Leonard in the Original Series, movies, and The Next Generation and Ben Cross in the JJ Abrams Kelvan Universe.
