As teased at the end of season 1, and the first look at season 2, Star Trek: Discovery will be encountering the pre-Original SeriesU.S.S. Enterprise and her crew. If you are a Star Trek fan you know that crew includes Captain Pike, his Number One, and Spock (okay maybe Sulu too).
Well we've seen Pike, and Number One has been cast, but what about the man with the ears? When they first encounter the Enterprise, Spock is not onboard, but he is apparently linked to some mystery in the season (see the first look) and was promised to appear in season 2. Now we know who will be playing him: Ethan Peck. Peck is the grandson of Gregory Peck, and appeared in TV series such as That '70s Show and Madam Secretary.
Thanks to the Nimoy family for your open arms, warm welcome, smiling curiosity and support, for making me feel worthy, as I embrace and take into my heart the iconic half alien we know as Mr. Spock. It is an incomparable honor. #StarTrekDiscovery #LLAP pic.twitter.com/jEXG1T253Z— Ethan Peck (@ethangpeck) August 14, 2018
Now that the search for Spock is over, its time to search for Spock in Star Trek: Discovery season 2, which should be launching January 2019.
