WARNING: STAR TREK DISCOVERY SPOILERS AHEAD
On the season one finale of Star Trek: Discovery, fans saw a brief cameo from the USS Enterprise. What does this mean for season two? EP Aaron Harberts says:
I think one of the biggest things it’s going to allow us to do is start to develop how Discovery fits into canon. One of the big things that’s been polarizing for fans is, “We’ve never heard about Discovery! How does it fit? She’s related to Spock?” All those things. And what it’ll allow us to do is hit that straight-on. We see it as an exciting opportunity to say, “This is exactly how Discovery fits into the timeline. This is exactly how we can reconcile the choices we have made.” Because at this period in time, the Discovery and the Enterprise are the crown jewels in the fleet, so they should be face-to-face.”
And what else can fans expect from season two of the CBS All Access series? Maybe more Christopher Pike? EP Gretchen J. Berg said it’s a possibility:
Yeah, we can’t talk about specifics too much, but I think that because we are in canon, we look at things we know, and things we don’t know… and then there are the things we don’t know about the things we know! And there, often, you’ll find great opportunities for storytelling. But it is intriguing. It’s one of the fun things about playing within this box that is the timeline where we are.”
If there ever were to be a captain from canon that one could explore… Christopher Pike would certainly be that one.”
