Today at New York Comic-Con, a new trailer for the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Discovery dropped, bringing with it a tease at the intriguing storyline that’ll fuel the sophomore run of the CBS All-Access series as well our first looks at some of the fresh faces joining the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery. Now, we’ve got some great images which allow us to study these newcomers a little closer, including Ethan Peck’s version of the one and only Spock.
As seen at the end of the trailer, Peck’s Spock is depicted with a healthy beard. Typically, seeing the character with facial hair means we’re dealing with his evil doppelganger from the Mirror Universe but, though Discovery already pulled that trick last season, we’re pretty sure this one’s the real deal and his unshaven state is just due to him being stranded in space on his quest to track down the mysterious “red angel.”
The rest of the photos offer a couple of new looks at protagonist – and Spock’s foster sister – Lieutenant Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), with one of her cavorting about a planet in a spacesuit and another capturing her own encounter with Spock’s spectral angel. Michelle Yeoh’s Captain Phillipa Georgiou is also depicted here in a photo which sees her make a return to the bridge of the Discovery, alongside Anson Mount’s Captain Christopher Pike.
Pike, of course, was originally from TOS‘ pilot episode “The Cage.” Another character from that episode is Number One, now played by X-Men‘s Rebecca Romijn, who we see arriving on the ship in one of the shots. Finally, the other images depict the Discovery stuck in a spot of bother, as it appears to be trapped in an asteroid field, while another has the crew surrounding a device holding a fragment of one of these asteroids.
When put together with that aforementioned trailer, we’re finally starting to get a good idea of what’s in store for us with Star Trek: Discovery season 2 and can’t wait for it to premiere onto CBS All-Access on January 17th, 2019.
