On May 15, Discovery Season 2 will premiere.
The first half of Discovery Season 1 took place during the USS Discovery’s first voyage to Mars and featured the crew on board the Enterprise.
This season will feature a lot of different stories.
As Discovery Season 3 starts, the crew of the Enterprise will have to make their way across the galaxy to find a mysterious new world, with Kirk and Spock leading the way.
There are also some surprises on the way, including some unexpected and very dramatic ones.
Here’s what you need to know about this season of Discovery.
The ‘Star’ is back!
There’s one new name in the title of Discovery’s Season 2: the Enterprise, which will be returning in the upcoming second half of the season.
As of right now, there are no official details about what that name will be, but it will most likely be the same as the previous Enterprise series, which starred Gene Roddenberry’s original vision for the ship.
The new name is “Voyagers,” which is the name Roddnest’s first-ever Klingon, Admiral James T. Kirk.
So, if you’re a Trek fan, you’ll know that “VOYAGERS” is definitely not a new name, but a new title for a series that’s been around since the beginning of Star Trek: The Original Series.
Kirk and Scotty get to be Klingons!
Kirk and his crewmates will be known as the Klingons, but they will be the first of many new alien species that Discovery Season 4 will introduce to the series.
“Venture out of the Delta Quadrant and into an unknown world and meet some of the new and fascinating alien species you have to discover in this first season,” Discovery Executive Producer J.J. Abrams said in a statement.
“I am looking forward to exploring the galaxy with you as the new captain of the starship Enterprise.”
The Enterprise is a spaceship!
The Enterprise will be traveling around the galaxy as the series continues.
It will be very different from the first series, in which Kirk and company were aboard a starship that was a starship.
The USS Enterprise was the first starship to feature a computer.
In Season 2, the Enterprise is traveling in a space shuttle that looks a lot like a space station, and will have an alien spacecraft in it.
Discovery Season 5 will introduce the Enterprise’s newest addition, the USS Titan, which looks like a spaceship that’s being used for a science experiment.
Kirk’s Klingon accent is going to be an essential part of Discovery!
In Season 4, Kirk’s accent will be a big part of the show.
He will be played by James Cromwell, who previously played Captain Kirk on Star Trek Nemesis and Star Trek Beyond.
He also played Captain James Tiberius Kirk on The Next Generation.
Cromwell is also the voice of the Klingon Commander from Star Trek Into Darkness.
Kirk is going out on a mission!
In addition to getting to Mars, Kirk is also going to explore a new alien world, one that will be called “Vegma,” according to Abrams.
The name was given to this planet by the Romulans, and it will be set in a world called “Fate” that is inhabited by the Klingonese.
This is a new location for Kirk, which has been in orbit around the planet for some time.
Kirk will learn how to pilot the Enterprise!
“As Captain Kirk, you will learn the art of piloting an Enterprise,” Abrams explained.
“As an engineer, you might be the one who has to guide your ship in an unexpected direction or make tough decisions in order to reach your goal.
You’ll be able to do this in the pilot, and then as the ship goes out into space, you can experience it yourself.”
This means Kirk is in charge of the entire Enterprise, from his quarters to the bridge, and he’ll be learning how to be a starship pilot, which is a big change from the last season.
It’s the first time Kirk will meet Spock!
“We want to make sure that we can capture the excitement of the audience with this journey and bring them back with this new character,” Abrams said.
“It’s a special moment for Kirk and a special journey for the crew.
And it’s the kind of journey you want to experience in Star Trek.
Kirk has been a Starfleet captain for over 100 years, and we’re so happy that we’re able to bring him into this world with us.”
Kirk can be a Vulcan!
Star Trek fans have been wondering what Kirk’s new Starfleet officer will look like since he was first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Well, he won’t be just any Vulcan, either.
In the new series, he will be wearing a Starfleet uniform, with a different color for each crew member.
