Discovery's Hall H appearance today at San Diego Comic-Con, series' co-creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman announced Star Trek: Short Treks, a four-episode spinoff series of shorts that will roll out monthly beginning in December to tie Trekkies over until Discovery's Season 2 premiere in January. Spock will be part of Discovery season 2, showrunner Alex Kurtzman confirmed at Comic-Con, though he was a lot more coy on how Discovery will tie into Trek canon: "You will get those answers next season, guaranteed". And finally, another entry will focus on Tilly (Mary Wiseman) and an unlikely friendship she develops aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. Whereas Season 1 of Discovery was a war season, a heavily-serialized action drama full of twists and intrigue, it looks like Season 2 is getting back to what makes Trek feel like Trek-albeit with the show's distinctive modern flair intact. Rebecca Romijn will take on the role of Number One on Discovery, but it's now unknown who might play Spock. "Each episode will deliver closed-ended stories while revealing clues about what's to come on in future STAR TREK: DISCOVERY episodes".

Wilson Cruz, the actor who plays Dr. Hugh Culber, revealed that he will return to the show, though he was killed off last season. It introduces Anson Mount's Captain Christopher Pike - Kirk's predecessor - in the flesh, who takes control of Discovery citing a new threat in the galaxy: a series of "red bursts" scattered across 30,000 light years. But for me and based on what I heard about the first season, there's not enough here to be like, "Yes, I must pony up for a CBS All Access subscription to watch this excellent TV show".

Romijn will play the original character from the unaired pilot alongside Mount's Pike.
