'Star Trek: Discovery': Number One, Captain Pike More Than Shipmates?

Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery is mere weeks away from warping onto CBS All Access, and we're not done getting teases of whats' to come.

From TVLine, an exclusive [to them, obviously] image of Rebecca Romijn's Number One sitting with Anson Mount's Captain Christopher Pike, sharing a meal and a knowing look:

The outlet alludes to there being more between the two than just their bridge chair positions, pointing to the shared-gaze.

It could just be the perfect timing for the photo, as obviously they're discussing something important (you know, the PADD there on the table), or maybe the raktajino is just really that good.

If you are unfamiliar with these two characters, they both hail from the 'unaired' original Star Trek pilot "The Cage", where Christopher Pike (played by Jeffrey Hunter) captioned the good vessel Enterprise, joined by his first mate Number One (played by Majel Barrett).

We're pretty excited about the notion of Number One getting another chance to shine on screen, Romijn herself is a Trekkie, and that gives us hope.

Star Trek: Discovery returns to CBS All Access on January 17th 2019 for season 2.
