CBS yesterday announced that Anson Mount will play Captain Christopher Pike on Star Trek: Discovery’s second season. Captain Pike first appeared in The Original Series pilot episode “The Cage,” and then in disfigured form in “The Menagerie, Part I and II.” Pike was also seen in the Kelvin Universe in both Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness films.

Captain Christopher Pike led the USS Enterprise prior to Captain James T. Kirk.
Cat’s out of the bag. Yep, I have officially joined STARFLEET, a dream I’ve had since around the age of 8 when I first discovered TOS syndicated on my local access channel in middle TN. And couldn’t be more excited to be playing PIKE! @startrekcbs pic.twitter.com/UWojAvI6bc
