Watch this: Star Trek: Discovery's season 2 trailer revealed at Comic-Con 2018

The first season of Discovery offered a more epic, continuing storyline and notable characters willing to embrace moral ambiguity, but ultimately embraced the key themes of that made Star Trek great. It also left us with a lot of burning questions that season 2 will hopefully answer. 

Discovery will air its second season in 2019. It's set to once again stream on CBS All Access in the US and Netflix elsewhere. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET's parent company).

A series of short Star Trek films called Short Treks will delve deeper into the backstories of Discovery characters starting this fall.
