Who knows! Either way, we are pleased to see an Iranian Woman cast for such a high powered position, demonstrating positivism and diversity for the future. (Whether she is a goodie or a baddie!)

Here is Seth’s opening staring William Shatner as Captain Kirk.
We think we hear a sneaky Qapla’ after one of Seth’s number. What do you think?…Seth?…phone us? Marry us both like Mormons Bolians.
