STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Season 2 Trailer Teases Christopher Pike & Spock
The USS Discovery is about to have a little more fun.
During yesterday's CBS panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, CBS All Access revealed the first trailer for the second season of Star Trek: Discovery, featuring the first look at Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike and teasing the arrival of Spock.
The two-minute, 30-second trailer begins with a voiceover by Commander Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), who says, "We have always looked to the stars...to discover who we are. And hidden there was a message, the secret made of space and time, visible only to those open enough to receive it."
We see Burnham wearing a spacesuit, sitting on the ground surrounded by wreckage of a facility or spacecraft. She sees the blurry outline of a mysterious figure, and the screen abruptly cuts to black.
Next, we see the exterior shot of the Discovery encountering the USS Enterprise from the end of Season 1. Inside the Discovery, Communications Officer Lt. Milton Richter (Christopher Russell) remarks, "Captain Christopher Pike request permission to come aboard."
Pike, wearing what appears to be a transitional Starfleet uniform similar to the original Star Trek series uniforms, beams aboard the Discovery, greeted by Burnham and Commander Saru (Doug Jones). "Well, Commander, this is awkward," Pike begins, "but the best way to get into a cold stream is to jump right in. "I'm here to take command of the Discovery under Regulation 19, Section C." Saru and Burnham look at one another, wondering what the hell just happened.
As Saru and Burnham walk down a corridor with Pike and a couple of Pike's officers, Saru tells Pike, "Your directive is only instituted when an imminent threat is detected."
Pike replies, "Federation sensors picked up seven red bursts, spread out across more than 30,000 light years." In a separate scene on the bridge, Pike tells the crew, "These mysterious signals are beyond anything we understand. Is it a greeting? A declaration of malice? Let's find out."
"Aye, sir," replies Helmsman Lt. Kayla Detmer (Emily Coutts).
As the Discovery jumps to warp, we hear the song "Fly Away" by Lenny Kravitz and see Pike, Burnham and a third officer wearing spacesuits and drawing their phasers at three lights beamed at each officer.
In another scene, we see Operations Officer Lt. Joann Ososekun (Oyin Oladejo) say "Six seconds to impact!", followed by a shot of Pike in a small spacecraft trying to race through an asteroid field along with two other crafts. "I am in total freefall," says Pike.
"Trust them," replies Burnham from a second craft. "Discovery has you. Right, ladies?"
Detmer and Ososekun nervously look over at one another. "Uh...Yeah!" answers Detmer, while Ososekun replies, "Absolutely!" "Oh, dear," remarks Saru.
We then see Ensign Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman) excitedly shout, "It is the power of math, people!" before high-fiving Lt. Commander Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp).
In a different scene, Pike talks with Burnham. "We have someone in common," he tells her.
"My foster brother," replies Burnham as we see a blue Science uniform similar to Pike's. "Mr. Spock."
"He took leave. It's as if he'd run into a question he couldn't answer."
Later, Burnham tells Saru, "Spock is linked to these signals...and he needs help."
In another scene, Burnham tells new character Jet Reno (Tig Notaro), "We're on a collision course with a pulsar."
"Oh, what a relief," sighs Reno. "I thought we were all gonna die."
We then hear Pike say in a voiceover, "Wherever our mission takes us, we try to have a little fun along the way. Ruffle a few feathers."
"I look forward to it," replies Burnham.
In a final scene, Linus, a new Saurian crewmember of the Discovery, is waiting in a turbolift as Burnham, Saru, Pike, and Pike's two officers enter. Burnham looks at Linus with concern and says "Linus, you okay? You look a little --"
Linus gestures to his throat, indicating that it's sore.
"Yes," Burnham replies sympathetically. "I hear it's going around."
Linus abruptly turns and sneezes on Pike's science officer.
"Bless you," says Pike politely.
