A new preview for the second season of Star Trek: Discovery was shown at New York Comic-Con Saturday.

The panel was moderated by Romijn and featured Sonequa Martin-Green (Commander Michael Burnham), Doug Jones (Commander Saru), Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler), Mary Wiseman (Ensign Sylvia Tilly), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Commander Paul Stamets), Michelle Yeoh (Philippa Georgiou), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), Mary Chieffo (L'Rell), Anson Mount (Captain Christopher Pike) and Ethan Peck (Spock). It also gives us our first look at Rebecca Romijn as Number One. And he's got a beard!

The cast did not elaborate on who or what this "red angel" was, but we can speculate that it could be an alien or something connected to Vulcan telepathy.

Two reasons really, one the episode is brand new and some viewing areas may not have shown it yet so I'm not going to spoil it, and two because ultimately Runaway is a beautifully written, shot and acted character piece on Tilly.

Christine Blasey Ford has been nominated for a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus award. However, the Republican cautioned that "it remains to be seen whether this lasts for the next three weeks or not".

Burnham's story appears to be closely linked to that of her foster brother's in season two. "Spock has also seen this Red Angel". Jones further teased that we may meet the predator species on that planet who hunt Kelpiens as prey.

Martin-Green said Ethan is "just so good!" The pair have both been separated from their real siblings for years, but they have each other as surrogate siblings. I really loved that because one of the things we are doing in our iteration, on Star Trek: Discovery, is being our own thing, but also keeping that connection with us in the canon and having that connective tissue.

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. She also said that there will be challenges for L'Rell as numerous male Klingons are not down with her being in power as she pursues T'Kuvma's vision of unification. But he is definitely back, telling the crowd, "We find him where we left him". Does he mean dead? Laying in that hallway? "And the first and simplest way you can do that is by making sure you're registered to vote".
