Celebrities age is the subject of a controversy in the science-fiction genre.
On Thursday, the Star Trek: Discovery production team announced that the cast of the Discovery series, including actor Jonathan Frakes, actress Tessa Thompson, actress and model Alyssa Milano and director James Wong, will be taking a little break from the franchise to take a little time off.
But the cast members are expected back for another season.
This isn’t the first time that the franchise has dealt with age issues.
Last year, the franchise announced that its cast would be taking another three weeks of leave after filming wrapped.
Star Trek has also had to deal with some controversy over its portrayal of pedophilia in the original series.
