Star Trek Discovery season 2 Trailer is here! The last season ended with the Discovery coming face to face with the USS Enterprise captained by OG Enterprise Captain Pike.
Per The Verve:
The trailer reveals a bit more of what to expect from the upcoming season, which appears to begin with Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) coming aboard and taking control of the USS Discovery after a series of mysterious “red bursts” are detected, simultaneously spread out across 30,000 light years. Burnham later claims “Spock is linked to these signals.” New series guest star Tig Notaro makes a very Tig Notaro joke, Pike encourages the crew to “have a little fun,” Tilly yells about “the power of math” — a good time, in other words. (After all, the whole thing is set the tune of Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away,” so you know it’s real.) Bonus: at the end we meet another, very sniffly alien Discovery crew member, proving Saru and the bridge androids aren’t the sole non-humans aboard the ship, as we once feared.
Rebecca Romijn is also set to join the cast as well.
She will be portraying the role of Number One. Number One is the Starfleet officer who served aboard the USS Enterprise as the first officer to Captain Christopher Pike. Her only appearance was in “The Cage,” the first pilot for Star Trek: The Original Series. In the episode, she is only ever referred to as “Number One,” leaving her name unknown in Star Trek canon.
“Just call me ‘Number One!'” Romijn tweeted shortly after the casting announcement was made. “Honored to play such an iconic character in #StarTrek Canon originally played by the First Lady of Star Trek, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry!”
Season 2 is slated to premiere sometime in early 2019.
