"Michelle joined us midway through season two and energized the room with her ferocious knowledge of Trek," Kurtzman said in a statement.

"Her grasp of character and story detail, her drive and her focus have already become essential in ensuring the Trek legacy, and her fresh perspective always keeps us looking forward. I'm proud to say Michelle and I are officially running Star Trek: Discovery together," he continued.

Star Trek: Discovery takes place before the original Star Trek series and follows the crew of the USS Discovery. Sonequa-Martin-Green, Anthony Rapp, Jason Isaacs and Doug Jones star.

Season 2 of the series debuted in January with new episodes airing on CBS All Access on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET. Ethan Peck joined the second season as a younger version of Spock.
