Fans attending New York City Comic Con were treated to the debut of Star Trek: Discovery's season 2 trailer yesterday, featuring our first look at the newest incarnation of Spock, played by Ethan Peck. It's not Captain Kirk and crew though - the Enterprise is captained by Christopher Pike at this point in the Star Trek timeline. At the end of the new trailer below, you can get a glimpse of the new version of Spock, who is being played here by Ethan Peck. "All of Starfleet's most legendary officers join together for the first time against some of the greatest threats they've ever faced". We've got Spock Beard.
"This season is deeply emotional", said Green.
As far as the Red Angel, the star said it's the big mystery of the season. Spock, who appears bearded and disheveled (as much as a Vulcan can be), will likely aid in that quest as the adopted half brother of series lead Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green). "And Spock has seen this Red Angel in an earlier moment in his life". So what's next for him?
If you're a fan of Doug Jones' Saru, you're in luck, because the alien character will be learning a shocking piece of information about himself that Jones could not spoil.
Don't miss Short Treks: Runaway.
The Saru actor also said that his character considers Burnham to be a sister as well, and when he goes through that rough patch mentioned above, he goes to her. "We can create a world where we really do respect each other". "Obviously we didn't take the casting of Spock or Pike lightly". And there is one conscious survivor, Chief Engineer Denise Reno, played by Tig Notaro. "This chasing the signals is bringing a kind of classic episode feel to the season while maintaining a [season-long arc]".
"When they fit me, they fit me in the original gold uniform from Enterprise because Discovery takes place 10 years before the original series", she said.
Latif's character Ash Tyler has been conspicuously absent from all the season 2 promotional material, but at the panel, he explained that Tyler and L'Rell (Mary Chieffo) will be trying to maintain peace with the Klingons after the events of the first season.
Visually, the new trailer is all sorts of stunning, but we can not really say that this surprises us in the slightest. I really loved that because one of the things we are doing in our iteration, on Star Trek: Discovery, is being our own thing, but also keeping that connection with us in the canon and having that connective tissue. But he is definitely back, telling the crowd, "We find him where we left him. And the first and simplest way you can do that is by making sure you're registered to vote". Does he mean dead?
