Season 1 of Disco ended with a big wow moment, and we’ve got a frame by frame look at the scene.
Full spoilers follow for Star Trek: Discovery’s Season 1 finale.
Whoa, that Discovery cliffhanger! After wrapping up most of the big plot threads of its first season in the finale “Will You Take My Hand?” (read our review here), Discovery headed straight into a big hook that was, of course, inevitable. CBS wants to make sure that we all come back next year — and that we hold onto our CBS All Access (or Netflix) subscriptions, depending on where we live — and so a cliffhanger was pretty much in the cards. But did we really think we’d get this reveal so early on?
Again, full spoilers follow…
That’s right, in the closing moments of the episode, the Discovery crew picks up a distress signal from none other than the USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain Pike. As the Disco drops out of warp, the Enterprise approaches and the two ships meet face to face (hull to hull?). Cut to black!
It’s a quick moment, but there’s plenty to digest here, not the least of which is the fact that the Enterprise has been redesigned for the show. Click through the slideshow below to take a closer look at Discovery’s USS Enterprise reveal…
What does this mean for Star Trek: Discovery‘s second season? It’s hard to say, but be sure to check out our chat with producers Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts where they discuss the decision to bring in the Enterprise, what it could mean for Burnham and the Disco crew, if we can expect to see Spock in Season 2, and more!
