In an interview with Star Trek: Discovery writer Nicholas Meyer revealed that the series has cast their first big name, Michelle Yeoh. The international action star has kicked ass in everything from James Bond’s Tomorrow Never Dies and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. There is no word on if Yeoh will play the non-captain lead previously referred to in the casting breakdown as Number 1, but that would make total sense.

Actress Parker Posey, best known for her work with Christopher Guest and the most vicious of High School seniors in Dazed and Confused, has been cast as Dr. Smith in Netflix’s reboot of the Lost in Space series. Dr. Smith was played by Jonathan Harris in the original series and later by Gary Oldman in the critically panned 1998 film. So in a classic gender role reversal, Posey will play the not so trustworthy scientist.
