It was a sunny Friday afternoon in San Diego when we attended the Star Trek: Discovery press conference. San Diego Comic-Con was in full swing by this point. All the costumed attendees made it feel a little like we were on some Federation party planet – Not a bad place to be.

We made our way into the large ballroom for this much-anticipated press conference. Most of the cast and a couple of executive producers sat at a long table overlooking a sea of reporters. They graciously answered all of our questions for the next 22 minutes and we left even more excited for season two.

We learned a bit about where Discovery is going to take us and more. There were also promises that we can expect the story to align with canon as the second season progresses.

We also got to meet Captain Christopher Pike, played by Anson Mount. After watching the season two trailer I’m convinced he’s the perfect choice to fill Jeffrey Hunter’s shoes.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series features a new ship and new characters while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. The first season is now available on CBS All Access, CBS Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, and is distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.
