Star Trek: Discovery airs on CBS: All Access and Netflix and the third season landed in October 2020. The season three cast includes Sonequa Martin-Green as science specialist Michael Burnham and David Ajala as Book. But fans are keen to find out who plays the Admiral, and Express.co.uk has all you need to know.
Who plays the Admiral on Stark Trek Discovery?
Star Trek Discovery has just given fans insight into the future of Starfleet, with a new admiral being revealed in the episode titled Die Trying, which aired on November 12.
The Discovery crew arrived in the 32nd century and they have managed to reconnect with a new crew member of Starfleet called Adira Tal (played by Blu del Barrio).
The Discovery crew ends up discovering that the Future leader of Starfleet is Admiral Charles Vance, who is played by Oded Fehr, and he is an old colleague of Admiral Tal.
Fans learned how Admiral Charles Vance is a 32nd-century Human Starfleet officer who used to serve as commander-in-chief for Starfleet.

He first met with the USS Discovery crew in the year 3189 and he revealed how the Federation had spent most of the 30th century fighting a war to uphold a treaty which outlaws time travel.
The treaty was in place to prevent people from the past altering the future, and those from the future changing the past.
Oded Fehr, who plays the Admiral, is an Israeli actor who is currently living in the US, and he is probably best known for his roles in the films The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.
The 49-year-old actor played the character Ardeth Bay in The Mummy films, and he also starred in a couple of Resident Evil films.
His other credits include Sleeper Cell, Charmed and the TV series Covert Affairs and NCIS.
He was born in Tel Aviv and he trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in the UK, following some drama classes in Germany.
The star was in the Israeli Navy for three years, between 1989 and 1992, and he worked as a security guard for the Israeli airline, El Al.
Since training as an actor, he took on roles in the NBC series UC: Undercover, and played the demon Zankou in the supernatural show, Charmed.
His most recent film role was in the 2020 film Liar, which is in post-production.
There is no knowing whether he will be starring in any additional episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, but fans were impressed by his character.

Sadly he has been referred to elsewhere as a guest star, so fans may not see much more of him in the series.
Fans are already keen to find out more about his character, with one saying on Twitter: “I’m hoping he isn’t a villain. Time to break the habit of “evil admiral” in Star Trek. #startrekdiscovery”
Another fan said: “I’d like to welcome @odedfehr to the Star Trek family. You make a great admiral, and quite striking if I may be so bold.”
Some viewers are hoping his character shows a softer side, unlike previous admirals in the series.
In his episode, the actor’s character Vance explained how the Federation had shrunk to just 38 worlds as members.
The only remaining members of the Federation’s government are all about to fit inside his officer’s quarters.
Admiral Vance may have come across as a tough character, but in reality, Starfleet is barely surviving.
Hopefully, Fehr will be able to return to the series one way or another in future episodes.
