The lead, Lt. Cmdr. Rainsford, aka "Number One." And before you ask, they're saying she's not supposed to be the same character played by Majel Barrett, but named in honor of her...or something. It's all rather weird and confusing, even for a new Trek series.

The release date is a moving target these days. First they said January 2017, then that got pushed back to March 2017. Now they're insisting it will be May 2017, but assume even that date is subject to change. I'm beginning to suspect that this series is slowly slipping into Development Hell.
