And now, after all the teasing and waiting, not only do we get to learn more about what he’s up to, we get to see him reunite with his sister... and things aren’t going to well for either the universe or Spock and Burnham, it seems.

Lt. Saru is one of Star Trek: Discovery's most fascinating characters — not just as a previously unseen species within the canon, but because he brings with him the question of how a member of his seemingly ever-fearful race ever got into boldly going. The latest Short Treks episode masterfully delivers on exploring both of those fascinations.
It’s time for everyone’s favourite temp Captain (or lunchmeat, I guess, depending on the universe you’re from) to get the spotlight in Star Trek: Discovery’s so far excellent series of minisodes.
Michelle Yeoh, as Captain Philippa Georgiou and then, later, as the evil Emperor Georgiou from the Mirror Universe, was one of the most captivating parts of Star Trek: Discovery's first season. And we may be seeing a lot more of her.
Star Trek: Discovery's latest episode in its bite-sized Short Treks series doesn't feature a fan-favourite character from the show like the previous instalment did. But "Calypso" does have one familiar element — Discovery's titular ship, though presented in a way we may never see again.
Executive producer Michael Chabon is helping bring back one of Star Trek's greatest captains, with a new show centred around Captain Jean-Luc Picard (played once again by Patrick Stewart). Chabon and his other writers have a lot to live up to — not just with honouring Picard's legacy, but also the decades of Star Trek canon that have shaped several shows and films. Based on a recent interview, his approach is pretty healthy: Follow the canon where you can, but find places to make it your own.
Although Michelle Yeoh's stalwart Captain Phillipa Georgiou didn't make it out of Star Trek: Discovery's opening episodes alive, her spirit — and more literally, even her mirror self later on — was one of the driving forces behind Michael Burnham's story. See just how important that was to both Yeoh and Discovery's creative staff in this new clip.

The announcement that Star Trek: Discovery’s Michael Burnham was actually Spock’s adoptive sister raised a few Vulcan eyebrows, and that was before Spock himself was added to the season two cast. Showrunner Alex Kurtzman is doubling down on his promise that this version of Spock isn’t going to muck up the timeline. All I can say is: Challenge accepted.
Warner Bros. is going all in on another cinematic universe. Simon Kinberg talks up the Gambit movie. Elisabeth Olsen promises more doom and gloom for Wanda and the Vision in Avengers 4. Plus, new details on what’s coming on Doctor Who, Sonequa Martin-Green on Discovery’s Spock, and what’s to come on Arrow. Spoilers, away!

This week, for the first time in its history, Star Trek Online got the chance to launch content related to a concurrent Trek TV series with Age of Discovery, a mini-update that brings gamers into the time of Discovery. This first slice does a grand job of capturing Discovery’s look and it’s tone — but it also slips up in similar ways as the show did.

It’s a great time to be a Star Trek: Discovery fan, but it’s an even better time to be a fan of Sylvia Tilly. Whether it’s in the first episode of Short Treks, Star Trek Online, or even Discovery’s home release, the someday future captain is all over Star Trek. To celebrate, we spoke with Tilly herself, Mary Wiseman, about what to look forward to.
I had a few misgivings about the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, but one of my biggest was that it felt like the ensemble aspect of Trek was shortchanged by the story's focus on Michael Burnham's wild journey. I wanted more time to get to know, and be invested in, the supporting cast. Short Treks could be the thing that does that.
This is not a drill folks. We've got Spock Beard. Our first look at Discovery's sophomore season was all about re-introducing us to the iconic USS Enterprise. This latest teaser gives us instead a look at what Michael Burnham and the crew of the Enterprise and the Discovery will be facing, and there's a whole lot of threats out there in the galaxy.
