My bet is Garth of Izar. Donīt forget that Garth was a great military strategist. Perhaps this explains what Pine said "will earn" the captain's chair - winning the best captain of the Fleet
Every time someone says Garth of Izar I get excited which never happened with Gary Mitchell.
Garth of Izar.. but if it is Cumberbatch I want to see him swishing about in that coat, not just in the drabness we've seen so far. Though I guess they weren't going to give us any stills of the coat since that might be too much clue.
Cumberbatch would make a brilliant Garth of Izar.
