Star Trek Actors Welcome Discovery’s New Spock

Following the casting of Ethan Peck as Spock on Discovery, a number of Star Trek actors have welcomed him to the franchise.

Is it too much of a stretch to say that Star Trek just wouldn’t be the same without Mr. Spock?

Whether it’s Leonard Nimoy or Zachary Quinto in the role, everyone’s favorite Starfleet science officer brings a calm intelligence to the bridge, and just the other week, we learned that Star Trek: Discovery had located its half-human, half-Vulcan after months of searching.

His name? Ethan Peck, star of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and 10 Things I Hate About You, who’s signed on to play the foster brother of Michael Burnham (The Walking Dead‘s Sonequa Martin-Green) in what’s shaping up to be a much lighter batch of episodes than the debut season.

And it seems Peck has already been welcomed into the extended Star Trek universe, after numerous people involved in the franchise took to Twitter to offer their support for the actor and express how excited they are to see him climb on board. From the new Captain Pike (Anson Mount) to The Next Generation‘s Jonathan Frakes, here’s but a sampling of the welcomes that Peck has been met with.

If you’ll recall, the USS Enterprise’s most famous science officer was first teased during Discovery‘s season finale, when our crew encountered the aforementioned ship for the very first time. But there’s a twist; Spock’s slipped off the radar to tend to his own personal journey, as if he’d run into a question he couldn’t answer, as Captain Christopher Pike infers. What exactly he’ll be up to remains unknown, but from what we’ve heard, we’ll get the chance to explore what made Spock into the person we know him as today.

Said to be more in line with the old Trek seriesDiscovery‘s second season is expected to air via CBS All Access early next year, and as soon as we learn more about the role that Spock will play in the proceedings, we’ll be sure to let you know.
