Star Trek Discovery season 2 will show us a very different Spock to the one fans know from the original series.
The Netflix show will delve into Spock’s family history and explore his relationship with his parents and sister.
Showrunner Alex Kurtzman told TV Guide that season 2 Spock with be ‘both totally consistent with the Spock everyone knows but very, very different.’
He added to Syfy: ‘The Spock that we meet is ten years [before Star Trek: The Original Series]. So, he is not formed in the same way that he is formed by the time you get to TOS.
‘What we will learn is a lot of what made him the Spock that he was and what will make him the Spock he is, has to do with his family and his sister.’
His relationship with Michael Burnham, who was adopted by Spock’s parents, will be explored in the new season, with star Sonequa Martin-Green telling Syfy it is ‘a huge deal’.
‘We are going to be really digging into that relationship, and digging into a lot of family dynamics in season two. And not just in that family between Burnham and Spock and Sarek and Amanda, but also with the entire crew,’ she added.
Unfortunately we won’t be getting season two until 2019.
As co-creator Alex Kurtzman explained: ‘Breaking story is, in some ways, the easier and faster thing; it’s the ability to execute on it that’s much harder. We want to take the right amount of time and don’t want to rush.’
Season two will also feature the Enterprise, and you can also expect to hear from Section 31, an organisation which claims to protect the United Federation Of Planets.
