Lachman will play Tani Tumrenjak, a native of the island where the crew winds up. The daughter of an elder tribesman, she's described as a mixture of intelligence and naivete and has ambitions beyond the local bar she inherited that rest outside of Sainte Marina.
Felicity's Scott Speedman and Men of a Certain Age's Andre Braugher star as crew members aboard the U.S.S. Nevada. Autumn Reeser, Daisy Betts and Daniel Lissing co-star in the Sony Pictures Television drama.
