Fans also saw new casting addition Rebecca Romijn as Number One and returning star Michelle Yeoh, who plays Philippa Georgiou aka Section 31's new recruit. 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. Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery discovers new worlds and lifeforms as one Starfleet officer learns to understand all things alien.
Star Trek: Discovery has so far received generally positive reviews, garnering an 82% Rotten Tomatoes rating. "There's a conversation of science vs. faith and what does faith mean?" said Kurtzman.
Today, CBS All Access confirmed while at New York Comic-Con that new episodes of the series will start streaming weekly starting on Thursday, January 17. Doug Jones revealed that we will get more backstory on his character of Saru, and even meet his sister.
Culber was killed by a confused Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif) partway through the first season, but as Cruz has remained part of the season 2 promotional circuit, one can assume that his character will return in some form or other.
Saru's family is going to grow in the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. Instead of prison, circumstances forced her to serve on board the Discovery during a time of war with the Klingon Empire, under the command of Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), who was not exactly what he seemed. Also, she has hair now (as glimpsed in the new trailer) and in fact the actress said that the hair was inspired by the TNG episode "Rightful Heir" where Kahless (or a clone of him anyway) told a story about how the first bat'leth was made out of his hair. That explains Season 1's bald Klingons.
