Short Treks: CBS All Access Orders Star Trek: Discovery Spin-off

  • Star Trek Discovery Sonequa Martin-Green

Discovery may be the latest iteration of Star Trek, but after that Season 1 distress signal to the Enterprise opened the portal to a universe of fan theories, you guessed right if you thought you were soon going to experience a time warp to TOS.

The first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery season 2 is here. Spock will be part of Discovery season 2, showrunner Alex Kurtzman confirmed at Comic-Con, though he was a lot more coy on how Discovery will tie into Trek canon: "You will get those answers next season, guaranteed". One will feature Saru's backstory.

The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Anthony Rapp, and Mary Wiseman.

Season one ended with Discovery coming across the USS Enterprise so season two will pick up with this iconic moment and steer us into the heart of season two.


UPDATED with trailer: The Star Trek universe is expanding. While the casting for this character has not been announced, the character of the original Number One will be played by Rebecca Romijn.

The new teaser, which dropped Friday at Comic-Con, features the anticipated arrival of (a very dashing) Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount ) as he takes control of the USS Discovery to face an imminent threat - mysterious red orbs that are linked to Spock. In addition, the actor says that getting the role was not like landing another acting gig and called it a "rite of passage".

Star Trek: Discovery fired original showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg and replaced them with Akiva Goldsman, which has led to questions about how Season 2 will unfold. Since the show's premise-redefining season finale back in February, fans (like myself) have been anxiously awaiting any updates on the CBS All Access series.
