Patrick Stewart has a new "Star Trek" series? In it, Captains Kirk, Picard, Janeway and Sisko must go head-to-head in a contest rigged by the nigh-omnipotent Q, in order to save the galaxy.

Trek fans will know that Number One initially appeared in The Original Series' pilot "The Cage", where she was played by Majell Barrett, who happened to be the wife of creator Gene Roddenberry.

The 2 1/2-minute preview, which is now on YouTube, features newcomer Ethan Peck as Spock, the USS Enterprise's half-Vulcan, half-human chief science officer.

What do you want to see when it comes to Star Trek: Discovery season 2, and does the trailer get you even more excited? These two characters also have a tumultuous relationship, and it will be interesting to see how both of them work together.

Mount, who is also beginning his stint on the show in the new season, said of his character: 'Pike knows his greatest asset is his crew'. Romijn also took the time to praise the production design which she promises harks back to TOS as well. After a trip into the Mirror Universe, encounters with the pirate Harry Mudd, and other galactic highjinks, Discovery ends the season by running into the U.S.S. Enterprise, commanded by Captain Christopher Pike out in deep space.

"Discovery has been an incredible joy this season", said Kurtzman.

Three more will release in the coming months to the run-up of the new season's release: "Calypso" on November 8; "The Brightest Star" on December 7 about a young Saru; and "The Escape Artist" on January 4, 2019 where Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson) pulls another con.

Hopefully, in the upcoming season, the Klingons will look and act more like the ones fans had become accustomed to seeing in later seasons of The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager. "We all wait for the scripts and we'll see what happens". This culminates in an episode on his home planet where we'll meet Saru's sister.

Mount added that "the writers did a very good job of creating a new Captain Pike", while exploring what we already know about him.
