Rebecca Romijn has been cast to play 'Number One' in CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery. The actor tweeted out the news herself:

'Number One' appeared in the original Star Trek pilot as the second-in-command of the Enterprise under Captain Christopher Pike. Anson Mount was cast earlier this year to play Pike.
Barrett-Roddenberry later re-appeared on the series as nurse Christine Chapel, Lwaxana Troi, and the Enterprise's voice.
Star Trek: Discovery is expected to debut sometime in 2019.
