Star Trek Discovery Season 2

I love everything that Anson Mount does. I developed my man crush during Hell On Wheels and he was the most awesome Captain Christopher Pike, the Captain of the Enterprise before Kirk came along. Watching him and you realize the high regard with which he is held in the Federation is earned by his cool leadership under fire. The Admiral called him 'The best of us all". Mount took to the Star Trek mythology and gave more to a character that needed some enrichment. At the end he is back on the Enterprise with his Spock and his Number One and the rest of the Star Trek that we already know can evolve.

I found that the whole Red Angel stuff and Leland of Borg were interesting story arcs to follow. Yes, Discovery can be overwrought at times but that is what I loved about it. It always got me in the feels in ways that few of the other Star Trek shows ever did.

And for you that always hated Discovery, well that ship is far off into the future where it can have even more great adventures if the show gets another season. I loved Seasons 1 and 2. If you are a Star Trek fan with a more open mind, you will LOVE Star Trek Discovery. If you are a purist the show will annoy the shit out of you. I choose to enjoy the magic and the rich characters and all the interesting stuff going on in front of me.

There will be a third season of Discovery, but I'd much rather see a Pike series on the Enterprise. I really hope they make that spin-off. It would be amazing!

I agree with you. That last scene was amazing when Spock entered the bridge.

i thought season 2 improved on season 1... hope season 3 improves on both! and i'd happily see a pike, spock, number one series.
