New trailer for Star Trek: Discovery S2 gives us a young bearded Spock
The Klingons have hair again, Rebecca Romijn debuts as Number One, and we catch our first glimpse of a young bearded Spock (Ethan Peck) in the action-packed new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery season 2. It's the flagship series for the fledgling CBS All Access streaming network, which unveiled this sneak peek at New York Comic Con last Saturday.
Discovery is a prequel to the original Star Trek, set roughly 10 years before Captain Kirk and his crew took over the USS Enterprise and boldly went where no man had gone before. Season one adopted a darker tone than TOS and irritated the more hardcore Star Trek fans, but season 2 looks like a return to its roots, with a fair sprinkling of humor to lighten things up—plus lots and lots of dramatic lens flares.
