There were light years to cover when the Star Trek: Discovery cast beamed into TVLine's San Diego Comic-Con interview suite on Friday.

Since then, fans have been speculating about which characters from The Original Series will appear in Season 2.

Star Trek Discovery co-creator and executive producer Alex Kurtzman, who directed the season two premiere, also announced at today's panel the plan for Star Trek Short Treks. It was also confirmed that the new season will see the addition of Rebecca Romijn as the original Number One, and even an appearance by Spock!

After an visually intense voiceover sequence in which Sonequa Martin-Green's Michael Burnham wondrously declares that the stars contain a secret message "visible only to those open enough to receive it", a man wearing a yellow Starfleet uniform (Marvel's Inhumans' Anson Mount) insists that the "best way to get into a cold stream is to jump right in". In fact, the USS Discovery received a distress call from the USS Enterprise in the Season 1 finale! It appears what is old is new again, as Commander Pike is on a mission to find Spock. "So much of what is happening over the course of season 2 is going to test [the characters] constantly". It's a role that not many have gotten to play.

The original "Star Trek" debuted in 1966 as a US television series depicting the adventures of the Starship Enterprise.

Star Trek: Discovery fired original showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg and replaced them with Akiva Goldsman, which has led to questions about how Season 2 will unfold. But based on the new trailer, it turns out I was not far off the mark!
