The universe of Nobility is set 700 years into our future and much has changed. Mankind has spread out among the stars with Earth being the capital world of the Confederate Alliance, naturally. I mean, on what other planet can you get decent Chinese take-out for staff meetings?
In an attempt to show what a great and benevolent power it is, the Confederate Alliance decides to showcase its most powerful starship, the C.A.S. Nobility. The big brass order the ship and her crew to submit to being the subject of a documentary, which is headed up by a Eujin (that there’s an alien, folks) named Sirius Halud. Sirius is honored to have this great task thrust upon him and boards the Nobility with pride and optimistic anticipation.
Then he meets the crew …
Unlike the namesake upon which they’re stationed, there isn’t a lot of actual nobility going around. Captain Eric Cern (Cas Anvar) is a man who sleeps around so much that he makes James T. Kirk look like a celibate monk. Navigation is headed up by Bob Takashima (James Kyson), closeted and overcompensating to prove he’s straight while Chief Engineer Frank Mooney (Walter Koenig!) loves his whiskey more than his duty. The rest of the crew aren’t much better; some may be worse.
Nobility is quite literally packed with amazing talent. How an independent project managed to get so many great names into one place is beyond me, but I’m both happy and impressed. Check out this list of principal actors for the series and you’ll see what I mean.
