Sometimes I feel like I'm cheating myself—as a Star Trek fan—by not subscribing to CBS All Access to catch Discover. I refuse to pay for another streaming service, however, and my stupid scruples prevent me from acquiring it illegally, so for now it's a subject on which I'm not an expert.

I know a couple of things like Anthony Rapp from Adventures in Babysitting (holds up) and Rent (doesn't) is in it, and Doug Jones (the tall creatures in all Guillermo Del Toro movies) is playing some gleep glop alien, but that's about it. Oh, I know they added a young, bearded Spock for the upcoming season two, because you can't get away from everyone's favorite half human, half Vulcan pop culture character.

I get that this is supposed to be Spock Origins or Spock Begins, but did he really need that emo beard? He looks like he's the bassist in a Fall Out Boy tribute band called, strangely enough, Radioactive Man. Whatever, the people in charge don't care, why should we?

Star Trek: Discovery returns for season two on January 17, which is a little over a month away. Which is a terrifying thought. Not that the show is coming back, but that mid-January is a month away. Still feels like it's at least two months away, if not more.
