Star Trek’s Official Website Gives Spock Spoiler In “Star Trek Discovery”

I’ve been enjoying the second season of “Star Trek Discovery” on CBS All Access, and I am especially fond of Ethan Peck’s portrayal of Spock. In a surprising move, the official Star Trek website accidentally dropped a spoiler about our favorite Vulcan (image below), which should make many fans very pleased.

Some people have complained about the facial hair this version of Spock has been sporting, but they can all relax now. Based on this image below, it looks like we will see Mr. Spock not only without the beard, but also in a proper starfleet uniform before the season concludes.

The image comes from the Star Trek Cruise, which has Ethan Peck participating in the event. Unfortunately, the image may have come a little too soon, as we got our first glimpse of the Spock many of us are more used to seeing due to an accidental posting on the Star Trek website.

It’s not a major spoiler, but it is nice to confirm that Spock will shave at some point and get into a proper outfit. As for how the season will end, this gives nothing away, and I look forward to finding out how everything wraps up in the coming weeks.

“Star Trek Discovery” Cast Say Season 2 Ending Will Be Very “Unexpected”

Fans of “Star Trek Discovery” have been enjoying the hunt for The Red Angel the past 10 episodes, and we recently learned who that time-traveling character is. With a handful of episodes left until season two comes to a close, the cast of DISCO says to “expect the unexpected”, and that this finale will be a game-changer.

The 2019 PaleyFest in Los Angeles (a major Television industry event) was visited by the cast and creative team of “Star Trek Discovery”. While we did not learn any new info about the series, we did get many of the actors explaining how excited they are for the conclusion of this season.

Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman was quoted by SyFy about the series finale, and discussed the continuity issues that are on many fans minds. “We are entirely aware of everyone’s questions and criticisms; I’ve read everything, and I see where everyone’s like, ‘Well, the spore drive never existed!’ and ‘What, Discovery was never around!’ and all of those things, we’re totally aware. You will get an answer.” He also added that it will be a “satisfying” resolution once it is revealed.

Aside from getting things back into some form of continuity with the classic 60s Trek, there is a plan to make sure the story of Captain Pike, played by Anson Mount this season who will not be returning for the

“We will synch up with canon, and obviously if you know the story of Captain Pike, you know what his fate was. It won’t be exactly what you think this season, but we will be consistent with that story. There will be a dimension shed on that story that you will not have known or have thought of,” said Kurtzman.

Ethan Peck, who has played Spock this season, added, “I personally think that the end of the season is going to be tremendous … when [Kurtzman] first told me about it I was like in tears, I just had chills… so good.”

The entire cast was practically in hype mode, which makes you really wonder just how big this ending actually will be if every single one of them was so taken aback by it.

“I think that the last few episodes will really close the circle for people, “Anthony Rapp (Cmdr. Staments) said. “If we’ve done our job, what was on the page … I haven’t seen them yet, but what was on the page in the scripts, closes the circle; it answers the questions that are lingering and remaining for people of how we fit in.”

“And I believe very strongly that it will leave people satisfied. … As someone who cares about continuity, to some degree, I was like, ‘If this doesn’t make people happy, I don’t know what else we can do.’”

“Expect the unexpected, is what my mother always says, and it couldn’t be more true, especially on this season, cause it’ll change everything,” said Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber). 

Doug Jones, everyones favorite Kelpian Commander Saru, said, “As I read the final script for Season 2, my jaw dropped, and I’m dumbfounded with where we’re headed. So I think the fans can expect to boldly go where no Star Trek series has ever gone before.”

Prepare for the unexpected when season two of “Star Trek Discovery” comes to a close in a matter of weeks!
