First Stills From Star Trek: Discovery Season Two Released

CBS All Access has debuted the official Comic-Con Trailer for the second season Star Trek: Discovery, offering a fresh look at the sci-fi hit. Who will play this iconic leading lady?

That might all change when season 2 airs in January 2019, though. Kurtzman feels that now, since the cast and crew have ventured further into space and past the initial pressure of creating the next chapter of Star Trek, the series can really focus on character backgrounds and relationships that had not been addressed before, as it tried to create a trajectory for its spore-powered starship.
