As we prepare for the holidays, enjoying family and friends, CBS All Access was kind enough to drop two exciting videos for us. One was the final trailer for Season Two. The other was filled with interviews and clips from behind-the-scenes of Season Two. Both did one thing: whet our appetites for the new season just a few weeks away from the beginning.
Here’s a break down:
Opening shot – Discovery traveling through red-orange clouds.
Spock V.O. – “There is a great responsibility at hand.”

Cut away to a clip from that asteroid field we’ve seen before where there are two figures in spacesuits tumbling carelessly towards one another in space.

Finally, in the behind-the scene trailer entitled “What to Expect in Season 2,” we get a few new images but THIS ONE was specifically intriguing to me.

All of this is making me want January 17th to get here as quick as possible! What about you?
