Star Trek: Discovery will introduce the franchise’s first non-binary and transgender characters in season three. Blu del Barrio will play the show’s first non-binary character, named Adira, in their television debut. Ian Alexander will play Gray, becoming the first transgender actor in the Trek universe.

Michelle Paradise, co-showrunner and executive producer of Discovery said “Star Trek has always made a mission of giving visibility to underrepresented communities because it believes in showing people that a future without division on the basis of race, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation is entirely within our reach.”
