The creator of the series, Bryan Fuller, described the whole process how the casting team witnessed the selection process for this series.
‘There are a few people that we like and we want to carry on what Star Trek does best, which is being progressive,” Fuller told Collider. “So it’s fascinating to look at all of these roles through a colorblind prism and a gender-blind prism.’
