Young Spock to Appear in 'Star Trek: Discovery' Season 2

Young Spock to Appear in 'Star Trek: Discovery' Season 2”

Star Trek: The Next Generation alum and director, Jonathan Frakes confirmed to fans at El Paso Comic Con that we will be see James Kirk's future first officer on Star Trek: Discovery, but not the way they might hope.

Frakes, who directed Star Trek: Discovery's midseason premiere episode "Despite Yourself", will return to direct the second and tenth episode of Season 2. Frakes will be stepping behind the camera for Epiosde 2 and, according to a helpful fan who live-tweeted the event, Frakes revealed that his episode will include Anson Mount as Captain Pike and flashbacks featuring a young Burnham and a young Spock, who grew up together under the guardianship of Spock's biological parents Sarek and Amanda.

Streaming now on CBS All Access, Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, Mary Chieffo, Jason Isaacs and Michelle Yeoh.

Since Burnham is consider part of the primary timeline, how will their relationship be defined?

In and of itself her adoption isn't that odd - The Next Generation's security officer Worf was himself a Klingon raised by humans - but what IS unusual is the idea that Spock would have had a sister and never mentioned it in decades of TV and film appearances, despite numerous storylines featuring his family (including his father, Sarek, who also appears in Discovery played by James Frain).

The finale of Star Trek: Discovery gave us a short glimpse at the most legendary ship in the entire Starfleet: the Enterprise, ten years before the original Star Trek television show. Burnham couldn't have had it much easier, but it will be interesting to learn in Discovery whether the two outcasts were allies or childhood rivals, with Spock pushing Burnham away for reminding him too much of his humanity.
