Who do you want to see become the captain of Star Trek Discovery? Here are our top 10 picks for the captain’s chair.

ICYMI: Star Trek Discovery showrunner Bryan Fuller tweets a picture of the new ship’s captain’s chair.

We now know that CBS’ new Star Trek series will be called Star Trek Discovery, now we just need to know who will be stepping onto the bridge and taking a seat in Discovery’s captain’s chair.

Here are our top 10 picks to become the new captain for the Discovery:

Nathan Fillion

Nathan Fillion is clearly the fan favorite to take over as captain of Star Trek Discovery. Fillion has so much fan support that some fans started a grass roots campaign to get him the job.  Fillion is of course best know for playing Malcolm Reynolds on Firefly and Richard Castle on Castle.

Fillion would be a brash captain, perhaps in the vein of Captain Kirk, but of his captain was anything like Malcolm Richards he would also have an endearing awkwardness to him. Who wouldn’t want a captain who’s aiming to misbehave?
