At the panel, the cast remained tight lipped about plot details for season two, but some big reveals were made. The trailer can be viewed below.
The controversial look of the Klingons from the first season will continue to evolve, according to Alex Kurtzman, who maintains that they are "trying to maintain the spirit of the old while using new makeup techniques". Absolutely, especially since season 2 of Discovery is really taking a pretty bold approach to some of its storytelling by bringing on board more iconic characters from within the Star Trek world, whether we are talking about Christopher Pike or Spock. We've got Spock Beard.
Romijn is joining the cast this season as Number One, a role originally played Majel Barrett in the original unaired Star Trek pilot in 1965 as well as in reused footage from that pilot in the original series episode "The Menagerie". The series was announced as a prequel to the original Star Trek, and it takes place about 10 years before that series.
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.
"I didn't know the full story". Time will tell as to whether you agree. Old school fans will be pleased.
Set a decade prior to the original, William Shatner-starring Star Trek series, Discovery introduces Spock as the half-brother of Vulcan-raised Starfleet officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green). L'Rell's arc will also see her dealing with the men who don't want her in power. The actress explained that now she gets to play the good, late Captain Georgiou, but also the Mirror Universe version of the character who is... not quite as good, and not quite as late. Now, we'll all finally find out what happens next. Let us know down below in the comments.
