Fans got a sneak peek of the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Discovery at San Diego Comic-Con where the cast hosted a special panel for the show. You can check it out for yourself below:
If you watched the first season of Discovery then you will see some familiar returning faces. You may also have noticed some colorful crew uniforms that were first seen over 50 years ago on the original Star Trek series. In fact, the trailer features Christopher Pike who longtime fans of the franchise will remember was the original captain of the iconic U.S.S. Enterprise. That is not the only throwback to the original series that season 2 will offer – series producer Alex Kurtzman has indicated that Spock will make an appearance sometime over the next year.
The trailer wasn’t just about the past, though. Discovery will be adding a new alien character named Linus to the crew.
Star Trek: Discovery premiered in 2017 as the flagship series for the CBS All Access video streaming service. There is no release date for the second season as of this writing.
