With just ten days left until the long anticipated Season 2 premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, CBS All Access released seven new photos from the first episode, 'Brother.' As has previously been reported, we know the USS Enterprise is going to make its first appearance on the show during the second season, and Captain Pike (Anson Mount) will be taking command of Discovery for at least part of the season.
Images released show Mount as Pike as well as most of the returning Star Trek: Discovery crew members; including Sonequa Martin-Green as Burnham, Doug Jones as Saru, Mary Wiseman as Tilly, Anthony Rapp as Stamets, Emily Coutts as Keyla Detmer, Oyin Oladejo as Joann Owosekun, and Ronnie Rowe as Bryce.
We also see James Frain as Burnham's foster father, Sarek. Interestingly enough – as he would be considered Burnham's foster brother – Spock (Ethan Peck) is not pictured in the released images, despite previous trailer footage of him aboard Discovery.
Star Trek: Discovery season 2, episode 1 'Brother': The crew of the U.S.S. Discovery joins forces with Captain Pike to unravel the mystery of seven mysterious red signals that have appeared across the universe.
In the first two images, we see Burnham and Pike on an away mission in protective gear with newcomer Rachael Ancheril as Nhan. We can see someone in a sort of improvised medical pod, and the back of someone who appears to be working at the facility. From the look of the scene, wherever they are has definitely seen better days…
Here we see Burnham and Pike on the bridge of Discovery.
Pike and Lt. Nhan on Discovery, apparently on the pads in the transporter room.
Saru and Burnham waiting in the transporter room of Discovery – maybe waiting for Pike to beam aboard?
Stamets and Tilly doing what they do in Engineering.
The Discovery bridge crew plus Sarek on the bridge. It appears this scene is before Pike beams aboard to take command, as Saru is sitting in the Captain's chair.
The second season of Star Trek: Discovery premieres January 17, 2019, on CBS All Access with 'Brother.'
