CBS has revealed 11 new character posters featuring the cast of Star Trek: Discovery.
Among the characters represented by the poster is Voq. Judging by the insignia overlay on Voq's poster, the character is another Klingon, joining T'Kuvma, L'Rell, and Kol as part of Star Trek: Discovery's cast.
CBS still hasn't said who is playing Voq, but the Star Trek: Discovery Twitter account tweeted out the post with the description, “Touched by fate and fire. He is Voq.”
Also represented in the poster are "The ruthless unifier" T'Kuvma (Chris Obi), "Battle Deck Commander of the Klingons, L'Rell' (Mary Chieffo), "The First Officer" Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), "The Leader" Captain Pihllippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh), "Captain of the USS Discovery" Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), "The Kelpian" Lt. Saru (Doug Jones), "The brilliant science officer" Lt. Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp), "The Soldier" Lt. Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif), "The Loyal Cadet" Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman), and "The Vulcan Ambassador" Sarek (James Frain).
Commander Kol apparently missed Klingon picture day.

Star Trek: Discovery was announced in 2015 and, though the series intends to abandon at least one key Roddenberry principal and adjust the series for modern expectation, CBS hoped to have the series debut as part of Star Trek’s 50th-anniversary celebration. CBS missed that window and instead, the series will come close to a debut on the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Star Trek: Discovery premieres Sept. 24, 2017.
