Star Trek: Discovery - series stars Sonequa Martin-Green and David Ajala and co-showrunners/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise. Years ago, non-binary and transgender representation was nearly entirely non-existent across major Hollywood projects.

Del Barrio will play Adira, a "highly intelligent with a confidence and self-assurance well beyond their years", according to the statement.

Deadline describes Gray as "empathetic, warm and eager to fulfil his lifelong dream" of becoming host to a Trill, a symbiotic organism that lives inside humanoids - but he will have to adapt when his life takes an unexpected turn.

The event - marking the anniversary of the original Star Trek's TV debut on September 8, 1966 - will feature 24 hours of free programming, highlighted by three and a half hours of panel discussions with the cast members and creative minds behind nine Star Trek series.

Discovery, CBS All Access' space series, has cast two new characters for its upcoming third season that will make Star Trek history as the first nonbinary and transgender characters in Gene Roddenberry's iconic series.

"Star Trek: Discovery", which can be seen on the streaming service CBS All Access, already broke boundaries by featuring the first married gay characters in the franchise's history.

Del Barrio is a non-binary actor, who uses they/them pronouns, as does Alexander, who is best known for playing Buck Vu on Netflix's The OA.

On Twitter, fans were quick to point out that the franchise previously portrayed characters described by the official Star Trek site as an "androgynous humanoid race" on the planet J'naii, in an episode of Star Trek: The New Generation titled "The Outcast".

The trans character named Gray will be played by trans actor Ian Alexander, the producers said, and non-binary Adira will be played by Blu del Barrio, an actor who like the character does not identify as male or female. The character will also be played by trans actor Ian Alexander (Lev, The Last of Us Part II).

Considering we're now wading through an unprecedented run of Star Trek between Lower Decks and the incoming third season of Discovery, hopefully there'll be a lot more to talk about here than the franchise had for its lacklustre San Diego Comic-Con panel earlier this year! You know the drill - mark your calendars and, of course, live long and prosper.
