We still don’t know what the second season of Star Trek: Discovery is all about, but the star of the show has a guess as to how fans will react when they see it. Watch that below, and catch up on some more fun bits from the cast and crew on social media.
Discovery “going for it” in season 2
Sonequa Martin-Green had a busy weekend. The day before appearing at the Emmys to help accept Star Trek’s Governors Award, the Discovery star participated in the Stand Up To Cancer charity telecast. While on the red carpet for that event, ET Canada had a chance to talk to the actress about her personal connection to the charity, as well as a bit about the second season of Discovery.
The actress noted that the second season will have some changes:
I am excited about it. I don’t know how else to say it, I am just so excited about it. We’re working hard on it right now and I will just tell you, it is going to be really emotional. It is going to be really wrenching because we are going to be finally dealing with the aftermath of everything that happened in the war in season one. We are not at war anymore and now there is time to look at the mess that was left behind.
Martin-Green then hinted that season two is going to evoke some reactions in fans and the only way she could express it properly was to demonstrate the look on fans’ faces when they see it (see above photo), with the following exchange:
Martin-Green: And, we are really going for it. I think people are going to be [makes surprised face] like that, “What does that mean?”
ET Canada Reporter: Shook?
SMG: Yeah, there you go, shook.

Here are more Star Trek: Discovery-related bits of interest from social media.
UPDATED: Frakes cake and Star Wars break
A couple of weeks ago, we reported on Jonathan Frakes tweeting from the set of Star Trek: Discovery, presumably to prep for directing his second episode of the season. Today the former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor shared a moment with the Discovery art department presenting him with a special Riker cake. And if you look closely, the tweet reveals they are working on episode 9.
And, over the weekend Frakes tweeted from another Toronto location, this time taking a trip to another franchise from a galaxy far, far away, with a photo taken at the Toronto Blue Jays Star Wars night on September 8th.

New Spock goes into post
Star Trek: Discovery went into production in mid-April, but it wasn’t until last week that editor Scott Gamzon began working on a scene with actor Ethan Peck. The new Spock replied to Gamzon’s tweet about this with a prayer emoji, perhaps giving thanks to the editor, or demonstrating hope that his best work won’t end up on the cutting room floor, as all actors fear.
