During the panel with cast and executive producers at Madison Square Garden, the official season two New York Comic-Con trailer debuted, and fans were given a first look at STAR TREK: DISCOVERY's Spock, played by Ethan Peck; Number One, played by Rebecca Romijn; and Section 31's newest recruit, Philippa Georgiou, played by Michelle Yeoh. The trailer can be viewed below.
The season is the first under new showrunner Alex Kurtzman (Sleepy Hollow, Star Trek: Into Darkness).
Today, CBS All Access confirmed while at New York Comic-Con that new episodes of the series will start streaming weekly starting on Thursday, January 17.
Jones said Saru finds out something about himself and what it means to be a Kelpien in Season 2, something he did not know but will be "challenging". "At the beginning, I didn't know what I was reading for".
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. Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery discovers new worlds and lifeforms as one Starfleet officer learns to understand all things alien. The actress explained that now she gets to play the good, late Captain Georgiou, but also the Mirror Universe version of the character who is... not quite as good, and not quite as late. Instead of prison, circumstances forced her to serve on board the Discovery during a time of war with the Klingon Empire, under the command of Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), who was not exactly what he seemed. This culminates in an episode on his home planet where we'll meet Saru's sister. We also felt as though the original series were transcendent in that way; they spoke to so much more than just an adventure in outer space featuring characters who you could know, love, and aspire to be like.
