Captain Christopher Pike assumes command of the Discovery in the awesome new Season 2 trailer…
I don’t know about you, but when the U.S.S Enterprise emerged from warp speed ahead of the U.S.S Discovery in the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery, the Trekkie within me had an explosion of pure unadulterated delight!
The all-new Star Trek series has proven to be the most divisive yet, however, a story arc featuring the mirror universe and the emergence of the U.S.S Enterprise swiftly catapulted the series beyond the final frontier and legitimised it as quintessential Star Trek. Despite the darker tone of the series, Discovery went from strength to strength over the course its run and left the majority of Star Trek fans gasping for more.
The wait has been arduous but at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 CBS/All Access unveiled the incredible new trailer for the series’ second season which not only promises more involvement from the crew of the U.S.S Enterprise but also ensures that franchise stalwart Captain Christopher Pike will be assuming command of the Discovery. Pike is a man on a mission, and the sudden emergence of a series of irregular transmissions has the Federation on the defensive leading the Captain of the Enterprise to take command of the Discovery.
Take a look:
Whether or not you were appeased by the events of Star Trek: Discovery’s debut season, the second is proving itself to be must-see television. Christopher Pike will be taking the Discovery to strange new worlds to seek out new lifeforms and new civilisations, a fundamental mandate for a Star Trek series. And, with the commander of the Enterprise sat in the captain’s chair, season two is going to be unmissable – and that is a tantalising prospect!
Star Trek: Discovery season 2 will debut on Netflix in the new year.
Until then, settle for a binge night of Netflix and chill with a repeat viewing of season one…set course for the second star to the right…and keep watching until morning!
