Star Trek: Discovery And Deadly Class Get Back-To-Back Premieres

Spock will appear in the upcoming second season of CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery.

During Discovery's panel Saturday at New York Comic Con, Martin-Green confirmed that the Red Angel teased in the trailer will be this season's overarching mystery and something that connects the adoptive siblings.

On the surface, Star Trek: Discovery and Deadly Class are both very different shows-one is a spacey, occasionally lighthearted drama and the other is a gritty, violent thriller set in a high school for assassins.

Ethan Peck revealed how "outrageous" the audition process for this role was, because he had no clue what he was reading for. "Now I understand its meaning and where it must lead", Peck's Spock says in the trailer before getting zapped awake aboard the USS Discovery.

Fans of Star Trek: Discoverywill soon be throwing up their Vulcan salutes as everyone's favorite sharp-eared space voyager will debut in the forthcoming second season. "We have to start Spock in a place where he's becoming who we see on the Enterprise with Kirk".

The panel featured all of the main cast members, including star Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays Spock's half-sister, Commander Michael Burnham, and spoke highly of Peck. "There's a conversation of science versus faith, and what does faith mean?" Season 2 will deal with the half-siblings' visions of a unusual anomaly called the "Red Angel". (Unless you count the fabulous goatee on Mirror Universe Spock, which I 100% do.) Season 2 will also introduce a new captain, Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) as well as a new crew of Klingons. "Obviously we didn't take the casting of Spock or Pike lightly".
