Season 2 concluded with the Enterprise, Captain Pike, and Spock being left behind in the ‘present’, as the Discovery nosedived into the 32nd century to outrun an artificial intelligence program called ‘Control’. Projecting the action further into the future than any instalment of Star Trek yet, showrunners Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise emancipated themselves from the constraints of existing Star Trek timelines, opening up Season 3 to the exploration of whole new worlds.

Reunited in the year 3188 are the fearless Michael Burnham; Saru, first officer of USS Discovery; science officer Paul Stamets and his husband, Dr Hugh Culber, and the ambitious Sylvia Tilly. New to the show, however, are Blu de Barrio as Adira, Ian Alexander as Gray, and David Ajala as Cleveland “Book” Booker. The latter forebodingly alludes to an event called The Burn, described as “the day the galaxy took a hard left”. How did the past play out?
