Star Trek Discovery season 2

While Discovery received mixed reviews in it's maiden year, season 2 turned out to be much, much better.

Now if they just would change the perspective from Burnham to the bridge crew like regular Trek, we are set for pitch perfect...

In this second season, the Discovery gets a new Captain, in no less then Chrostopher Pike who transfers from the Enterprise on temporary assignment.  This is due to a set of mysterious signals being picked up across the galaxy, apparently send by something called "the Red Angel".

These signals seem random at first, but the disappeared Spock had a theory they where connected, and soon the crew learns the meaning behind them.  They are waypoints interwoven with each other to prevent an evil AI from destroying the universe.

Discovery sets out to not only thwart the threat, but also on how to solve the mysteries behind the signals, while having to deal with the newly established Section 31 along the way. And Klingon politics, and the Prime Directive... all the things that makes Star Trek well, Star Trek.

The finale also has a fantastical continuity turn, in why in later series the Discovery, the spore drive or in Spock's case, Michael Burnham is never mentioned.  This all ties the whole series nicely into the canon in my opinion, and alleviates a lot of the frustrations fans had about "where do those come from" issues.

The series has already been confirmed for a thrid season, AND a Section 31 centered spin-off series, so that means more Star Trek is on the way to the little screen, certainly now that the alternate universe of the movie reboot franchise seems to be at an end...

And Anson Mount, thou haveth redeemed thyselves for the Inhumans big time...
