Salvation alum Santiago Cabrera and Blindspot actress Michelle Hurd have joined the ensemble of a new Star Trek series focused on Patrick Stewart's iconic Star Trek character Jean-Luc Picard.

"Make it so," CBS All Access tweeted, along with its casting announcement.

The streaming service did not say what characters the actors would play.

The project was announced in August.

Stewart portrayed the star-ship captain Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran 1987-94, and in four movies, the last of which was released in 2002. The title and debut date for his new show have not been announced yet.
