In a show like The Walking Dead where just about anyone could be sent to meet their maker, it’s no surprise the revelation Sonequa Martin-Green was cast as the lead star of Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access created concern about what would happen to her Walking Dead character Sasha.
Martin-Green is not giving anything away, but Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple did tease Entertainment Weekly‘s Dalton Ross that it is indeed possible for Martin-Green to be in two places at once.
“I’ve seen her battle a horde of walkers this year while simultaneously battling a stomach flu that would have had most people crying in the dirt. She can fulfill the duties of a lieutenant commander on a Constitution-class starship whilst battling walkers, Saviors and whatever gets in Sasha’s way.
“We’ve had to juggle before. I will certainly juggle for Star Trek any day of the week.”
While we’re sure Trekkies appreciate the kind of detail he provided from his Star Trek knowledge, we’re pretty sure the USS Discovery is not a Constitution class – the same class the original USS Enterprise in Star Trek.
