Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Reveals New Spock

Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Reveals New Spock

Star Trek: Discovery will follows the crew of the Discovery as they partner with the fabled U.S.S. Enterprise. In addition, the trailer was filled with other first looks including Number One played by Rebecca Romijn and Section 31's newest recruit Philippa Georgiou, a role reprised by Michelle Yeoh.

Also in attendance were Producer Alex Kurtzman Ethan Peck (Spock) and Anson Mount (Captain Pike) as well as the show's main cast.

The 2 1/2-minute preview, which is now on YouTube, features newcomer Ethan Peck as Spock, the USS Enterprise's half-Vulcan, half-human chief science officer. 'A few days later I got a text message from the casting director that said, "Welcome aboard Mr. Spock"'.

Romijn is joining the cast this season as Number One, a role originally played Majel Barrett in the original unaired Star Trek pilot in 1965 as well as in reused footage from that pilot in the original series episode "The Menagerie".

Are you excited for season two of Discovery?

Star Trek: Discovery returns to CBS All Access on January 17.

If you're a fan of Doug Jones' Saru, you're in luck, because the alien character will be learning a shocking piece of information about himself that Jones could not spoil.

Culber was killed by a confused Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif) partway through the first season, but as Cruz has remained part of the season 2 promotional circuit, one can assume that his character will return in some form or other.

The Saru actor also said that his character considers Burnham to be a sister as well, and when he goes through that rough patch mentioned above, he goes to her.

Mary Chieffo said L'Rell is now the Klingon Chancellor but the male Klingons aren't happy being led by a woman. Also, she has hair now (as glimpsed in the new trailer) and in fact the actress said that the hair was inspired by the TNG episode "Rightful Heir" where Kahless (or a clone of him anyway) told a story about how the first bat'leth was made out of his hair.

Hopefully, in the upcoming season, the Klingons will look and act more like the ones fans had become accustomed to seeing in later seasons of The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager.
