Wiseman joins the cast as Cadet Tilley, in her final year at Starfleet Academy. Her credits include study at the prestigious Julliard school, Longmire, and Difficult People, as well as several stage productions.

The two join a cast that includes Michelle Yeoh, Doug Jones, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, James Frain as a young Sarek, and Sonequa Martin-Green in the lead role as the ship’s first officer, Lt. Commander Rainsford. David Semel is set to direct the first episode.
