Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 production officially began last week with Executive Producer and Co-Creator Alex Kurtzman directing the premiere episode.

The press release references Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation series in saying…’Make it so!’ It then tries to add an air of sophistication referring to Discovery‘s sophomore season! What we have got is a behind-the-scenes trailer mixing fan boy and artistic style.
