After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S.Â Enterprise, season two of finds the crew of the U.S.S.Â DiscoveryÂ joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals, and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origin, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock.This trailer shows us a Spock who is not only bearded, but also…smiling?? An emotional Vulcan? Yes, he most certainly is, although this aspect of the character is technically in established continuity and not an error. The original pilot episode of Star Trek, “The Cage,” showed Spock smiling and expressing emotion, and that episode technically happens in the same time frame as Discovery. Maybe now we’ll know why!We also get a glimpse of the returning Klingons (finally with hair!), as well as the return ofÂ Michelle Yeoh as the evil alternate universe version of Captain Philippa Georgiou, who is now a part of Starfleet’s Black Ops unit, Section 31â€”a name that should sound familiar to long time Star Trek fans. Between this and the upcoming new Captain Picard series, Trek fans have a lot to get excited about in 2019!Star Trek: Discovery season two arrives on CBS All Access on January 17.
