Sign the Petition to Put #CaptainAngelaBassett on "Star Trek"

Ever since Bryan Fuller was announced as the new showrunner for the upcoming Star Trek TV series in 2017, a groundswell of support has risen up for the lead of the show. Fuller publicly stated he would want Angela Bassett as the captain of any future show, and we want to help make it happen.

In 2013 (before becoming an executive producer on the new show), Fuller described his idea for a new Trek show on Den of Geek, saying his choice of captain would be Angela Bassett, and Rosario Dawson as the First Officer.

The response to the suggested casting has been enthusiastic. Organizations and websites from the AV Club to The Mary Sue have spoken out to encourage the casting. A new hashtag #CaptainAngelaBassett has sprung up on Twitter. Angela Bassett herself has retweeted posts about it.

I've created a petition on Change.org to cast Angela Bassett as the captain of the starship on the Star Trek 2017 TV series. Go to About.com to read more details and sign the petition now!

Do you want Angela Bassett for Star Trek? Who else should they cast?
