For many CBS All Access customers, Star Trek: Discovery was and may still be the only reason to pay for the streaming service. That series premieres its second season tonight, with returning cast favorites Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, and Anthony Rapp, along with appearances by Michelle Yeoh (who does not seem to be credited on IMDB for the 2019 episodes).
In this new season, the crew of the Discovery face a new entity called the “Red Angel” that threatens to “end all sentient life in the galaxy.” The Discovery and USS Enterprise Captain Christopher Pike (played by Anson Mount) are joined by the special operation group known as Section 31, including members Leland (Alan Van Sprang) and Captain Philippa Georgiou (Yeoh).
Star Trek: Discovery was nominated for two Primetime Emmys, as well as winner of the Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Best New Media Television Series.
CBS All Access can be viewed on PC browsers and through the app for media players, phones, tablets and other internet-connected devices (see a list of supporting devices). The service costs $5.99 per month and CBS offers a free 7-day trial.
