As previously reported, Oscar winner Holly Hunter will star as the captain and chancellor of the titular Starfleet Academy, while Billions vet Paul Giamatti will recur in Season 1 as an as-yet-unnamed villain, “a man with an ominous past connected to one of our cadets.”

Season 1 will begin production later this summer.

Starfleet Academy marks the fifth live-action Star Trek series (and seventh Trek series overall) to debut on the streamer, following Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Short Treks, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Lower Decks, Star Trek: Prodigy and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

The YA offshoot will introduce viewers to the aforementioned cadets, “who come together to pursue a common dream of hope and optimism. Under the watchful and demanding eyes of their instructors, they discover what it takes to become Starfleet officers as they navigate blossoming friendships, explosive rivalries, first loves and a new enemy that threatens both the Academy and the Federation itself.”
