‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Spock and Company Are in a ‘Fight for the Future’ in Season 2 Trailer (Video)

CBS All Access adds an additional episode for sci-fi series’ sophomore run

The crew of the U.S.S. Discovery is in a fight for the future. But as Captain Pike (newcomer Anson Mount) reminds them, “we’re always in a fight for the future.”

CBS All Access beamed down another trailer for the second season of “Star Trek: Discovery” on Thursday, which added an additional episode for its sophomore campaign, bringing the total to 14. As previously announced, Season 2 will see the addition of Spock, who will be played by Ethan Peck.

After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise, Season 2 of the series finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery 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.

Season 2 will also feature changes behind the camera, with Alex Kurtzman taking over for Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts. This marks the second showrunner change for “Discovery” since CBS first announced the show in 2015. Harberts and Berg replaced original showrunner Bryan Fuller in 2016 as the show experienced extensive delays in getting to air.

Season 2 of “Star Trek: Discovery” premieres on All Access Thursday, Jan. 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.
