The new series of 'Star Trek' finally has a captain. Jason Isaacs, best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the 'Harry Potter' films, will play the USS Discovery's Captain Lorca in the upcoming CBS series.

Details about his character are scant, however, as CBS wants to reveal as little as possible before the first episode airs.

Isaacs has a wealth of experience in front of camera. As well as the 'Harry Potter' franchise, he's appeared in 'The Patriot', 'Fury' and Netflix's 'The OA', among others.

CBS has a lot riding on the show. As well as risking the ire of Trekkies all over the world if it's no good, it's also the showpiece for All Access, the network's streaming service that it hopes will rival the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

All Access will only be available in the US, however. Here in Blighty, 'Star Trek: Discovery' will air on Netflix.

The series will be available later this year, though there's no word on an exact date yet.
