Although he was mentioned repeatedly in the first season, Spock was never shown on screen - until now, that is.

Fans attending New York City Comic Con were treated to the debut of Star Trek: Discovery's season 2 trailer yesterday, featuring our first look at the newest incarnation of Spock, played by Ethan Peck.

In addition to that enigma (and the one of Spock's facial hair), we also got a look at Rebecca Romijn as Number One, and the return of Michelle Yeoh as Phillipa Georgiou. Long-time fans of the Star Trek universe may be surprised by how pretty and young this version is, compared to Leonard Nimoy's character!

Executive producer Alex Kurtzman unveiled the trailer and the premiere date during an NYCC panel at Madison Square Garden. According to him, Peck walked into auditions displaying all the right qualities of the character. You know more than I know!

During the panel, it was also revealed that much of the inspiration for the Star Trek: Discovery Klingon storyline was inspired by The Next Generation season six episode, "Rightful Heir" - that is perhaps why the Klingons invoked Kahless so often as the figurehead for the war. It also has a predictably loyal fanbase.

"I'm working with Anson Mount, who plays an fantastic Captain Pike, and we have discussed Mr. Spock". I just am so appreciative of it. Near the end of the process he did find out and he had "a panic attack". "So, I really appreciate it, and it is juicy!"

As part of the New York Comic Con celebrations, the new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, which goes out on Netflix in the United Kingdom, has been debuted online.

Two reasons really, one the episode is brand new and some viewing areas may not have shown it yet so I'm not going to spoil it, and two because ultimately Runaway is a beautifully written, shot and acted character piece on Tilly. The pair have both been separated from their real siblings for years, but they have each other as surrogate siblings. He loves gaming, science fiction, philosophical novels and even the odd guilty-pleasure trash TV Drama.
