The last we saw of “Star Trek Discovery” in season 1 showed our heroine, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), heading in the right direction, with all charges against her dropped. The war between the Federation and the Klingons was done and dusted, Emperor Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) had left the scene and Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) was dead.

While everything looked good for Michael, new events and characters are coming into the mix in season 2, including a new captain. There are also some mysterious red bursts, hinting at danger or a possible reunion with the return of Spock.

Season 2 of ‘Star Trek Discovery’ coming in 2019

As reported by The Verge, Netflix dropped the first trailer for season 2 of “Star Trek Discovery” at the 2018 Comic-Con in San Diego and it has since been uploaded to YouTube. We now get a hint at where the storyline will go when the new season streams in 2019. From the trailer, it is clear there will be new aliens, a brand-new captain in the form of Christopher Pike (played by Anson Mount) and the possibility of seeing our good friend Spock.

The trailer does have its light-hearted moments, but it also covers some of the emotional leftovers from season 1.

So far the plot line appears to involve seven mysterious red bursts, spreading out over 30,000 light years. This sighting brings Captain Pike into the mix, as he enacts Regulation 19: Section C to take over control of the Discovery. There is definitely a hint of Captain Kirk in the new leader as he struts around with just the right mix of cockiness you would expect from a Starfleet captain.

Among the action scenes in the trailer, Michael Burnham is also seen to scream while wearing her spacesuit, while surrounded by explosions of burning metal scraps, which seems to show Discovery in some form of trouble.

The possible return of Spock to ‘Star Trek Discovery’

However, probably the best news from the trailer is that Burnham mentions her adoptive Vulcan brother, Spock.

This comes after Pike says Spock had taken a leave of absence after coming across a problem he couldn’t solve, despite all his Vulcan knowledge. This news appears to be linked to the seven mysterious red bursts in space. Burnham says the bursts are a message from Spock and that he needs their help.

As noted by the Metro, the season 2 trailer for “Star Trek Discovery” hints that the same mixture of fun and danger is coming in season 2, which Netflix says will be streaming on their platform this coming 2019. Enjoy viewing the trailer for season 2, included below.
