Discovery' and its first season didn't exactly win over everyone, the second season looks to be drawing heavily on the established characters of the franchise and one of them is, naturally, Spock.

In addition to that enigma (and the one of Spock's facial hair), we also got a look at Rebecca Romijn as Number One, and the return of Michelle Yeoh as Phillipa Georgiou. It's not Captain Kirk and crew though - the Enterprise is captained by Christopher Pike at this point in the Star Trek timeline.

A fully bearded Spock is wheeled in and shocked back to consciousness for his introduction to Discovery, set a decade before the events of the classic television series. To that end, Kurtzman says that the season is about exploring the area between science and faith.

Star Trek: Discovery Season Two is now filming in Toronto and will premiere on CBS All Access on January 17, 2019. "Not everyone knows I'm from the mirror universe, so I get to play the good Captain", Yeoh said.

Mbappe making case for Ballon d'Or with four-goal game
Neymar has described Kylian Mbappe as a "phenomenon" after the Paris Saint-Germain teenager scored four goals in 13 minutes. Mbappe's fellow teammate, Neymar , put The Parisians in front in the 9 minute after converting a penalty kick.

If you're a fan of Doug Jones' Saru, you're in luck, because the alien character will be learning a shocking piece of information about himself that Jones could not spoil. Instead of prison, circumstances forced her to serve on board the Discovery during a time of war with the Klingon Empire, under the command of Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), who was not exactly what he seemed.

Two reasons really, one the episode is brand new and some viewing areas may not have shown it yet so I'm not going to spoil it, and two because ultimately Runaway is a beautifully written, shot and acted character piece on Tilly. "That brother-sister relationship goes to another level", Jones said before letting the audience know we'll see a naked Kelpien this season.

Latif's character Ash Tyler has been conspicuously absent from all the season 2 promotional material, but at the panel, he explained that Tyler and L'Rell (Mary Chieffo) will be trying to maintain peace with the Klingons after the events of the first season.
