What Will Be The Plot For Star Trek Discovery Season 3?
Unlike its predecessors, show creator Alex Kurtzman has said that the coming season will have a slightly normal tone. Season 2 ended with the show fast-forwarding 930 years into the future. Michael Burnham’s newly found partner could completely shift the style of the play in the upcoming season.
Spock will be more in the picture in the coming season. Showrunners have hinted that the Spock in season 3 will be very different than the Spock we saw in Season 1. Meanwhile, the Red Angel is still missing. However, she managed to tamper with Spock’s logical brain before she went missing. Though Season 3 will be set almost 930 years into the future, it will undoubtedly pick up several loose ends left in Season 2.
