Star Trek: Discovery confirms Spock reveal and more at Comic-Con 2018

CBS Corp's next voyage into the "Star Trek" universe will come in the form of a four-part series of 10-to-15-minute episodes released starting this fall on the CBS All Access streaming service, the network said on Friday. The show takes place a full decade before Star Trek: The Original Series, which means that the Enterprise is still under the command of Captain Christopher Pike.

Star Trek: Discovery returns with its Lenny Kravitz-filled second season-on CBS All Access in the United States and Netflix internationally-in early 2019. Anticipation for Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery is high, especially after some pretty interesting hints that were left. In fact, the USS Discovery received a distress call from the USS Enterprise in the Season 1 finale! There was a point a few years ago when Discovery was a show worth paying attention to, but I think at this point you're either in or you're out. Characters getting the Short Treks treatment are Harvey Mudd (Rainn Wilson), Craft (a new character played by Aldis Hodge), Saru (Doug Jones) and Tilly (Mary Wiseman).

Check out the Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 trailer below! The trailer showed Sonequa Martin-Green's Michael Burnham geared up and ready for some action and also introduced a new alien character by the name of Linus.

Season two is going to be about family according to series' co-creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman. It's a role that not many have gotten to play.

Wilson Cruz, the actor who plays Dr. Hugh Culber on the show, confirmed he'd be back, but didn't specify how.

"Pike was the original, Roddenberry's original face of Starfleet, so I only knew there was a tremendous optimism to this person and a good heart", Mount said. Kurtzman announced the plan for Star Trek: Short Treks at today's panel.

The first season of Discovery may have had its hiccups, stumbles, and all-around bad choices, but the second season is clearly trying to move things in a better direction.
