CBS All Access' upcoming Star Trek: Discovery will feature a gay character.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, out showrunner Bryan Fuller revealed last week at the Television Critics Association's (TCA) summer press tour that the series will be led by a woman.

“We're going deep into something that was for me always very tantalizing, and [we're telling] that story through a character who is on a journey that is going to teach her how to get along with others in the galaxy,” he said. “For her to truly understand something that is alien, she has to first understand herself.”

The character will not be a captain but a lieutenant commander, Fuller said.

Fuller also confirmed that Discovery will feature a male gay character. Other cast members include a female admiral, a male Klingon captain, a male admiral, a male adviser and a British male doctor, The Hollywood Reporter said citing unnamed sources.
