With Season 2 only a couple of weeks away, Discovery is out in full force. New images have been shared with various press outlets.
IGN got an exclusive set of new Discovery posters which pair off different characters – Pike and Georgiou, Burnham and Spock, Stamets and Culber, Tilly and Saru.
These are interesting, and hopefully hint at how these characters will interact in the upcoming second season. For example, we know Burnham and Spock have a lot of unspoken issues between them. We also know that Captain Pike was not made aware of the fact that Georgiou is not the Prime universe Captain he once knew, so could this lead to conflict in her new role working for Section 31 as she pushes the limits of his ethics?
New Cast Photos
E! Online also got a batch of new press photos of the cast.
From the new photos it looks like Tyler has been recruited to Section 31. He has a new leather uniform of sorts with the black badge, matching Georgiou’s style, and his new photo is on the bridge of the “Section 31 bridge/lab” set we saw being built in the “start of filming” promo video back in April. Apparently Section 31 also gets their own phasers, as both Tyler and Georgiou are shown with a dark phaser that has different detailing, most notably a slight hood over the top of the emitter. These new phasers are reminiscent of the “assault phasers” seen in Star Trek V and VI.
Photos from first episode – “Brother”
Thanks to USA Today we now know the title of the first episode of the season, “Brother.” They have some press images from the season opener too. We can see where season one left off, with Saru in command and Sarek on the bridge. We also can see Tig Notaro’s character of Chief Engineer Reno getting rescued by Pike, Burnham, and Nhan (the redshirt), behind her is the fellow crew member she’s trying to keep alive, Notaro described the scene back in August.
