Apart from characters, we also get a glimpse of the new Starfleet uniforms that is a homage to the fans of the original series.
Production has been underway for a while on the second season of Star Trek: Discovery, and from the looks of the sizzle reel that debuted at this year's San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, it's looking to ramp up the fun, the adventure and the space-borne mystery. Additional episodes include a deep dive into Saru's (Doug Jones) backstory as the first Kelpien to join Starfleet, and Tilly's (Mary Wiseman) journey aboard the USS Discovery and her friendship with an unlikely partner.

The volcano has also been pumping out much more lava than in the past; as much as 26 times the amount as the 2016 eruption. The worst case was a 20-year-old woman who suffered a traumatic, leg injury.
Front and center in the trailer is the introduction of Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), who is leaving the U.S.S. Enterprise and taking command of the Discovery to investigate some mysterious "red bursts". To top it off? "Obviously the spore drive is one of those elements, and by the end of Season 2 you will realize why certain things occurred". The trailer showed Sonequa Martin-Green's Michael Burnham geared up and ready for some action and also introduced a new alien character by the name of Linus. Anticipation for Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery is high, especially after some pretty interesting hints that were left. There had been speculation that viewers could be meeting Spock after the events of the finale, when Captain Pike sent a distress call to the USS Discovery. Spock casting news should be made available soon. "So much of what is happening over the course of season 2 is going to test [the characters] constantly". Also of note is an appearance by one of my favorite comedians, Tig Notaro. It's a role that not many have gotten to play. Throughout the trailer, he comes across as a no-nonsense presence, albeit one with a subtle sardonic wit that looks a good fit for the series. Jeffrey Hunter played the character in the first pilot for Star Trek: The Original Series. Kurtzman is clearly piloting (pun definitely intended) the series into thrilling new territory for its upcoming season - and that sounds like exactly what the show needs.
