Discovery Season 5 Trailer Teases The Final Adventures For Captain Burnham

TRAILERS

While “Strange New Worlds” and “Lower Decks” have gained a lot of positive critical traction by reverting “Star Trek” back to a more traditional, episodic form of storytelling, “Discovery” will likely stay on its current, modern tack of telling a single story over the course of a whole season. The first season was about the Klingon War. The second season was about a mysterious red angel and Michael’s brother Spock (Ethan Peck). The third season was about the crew acclimatizing to the 32nd century and investigating the source of the Burn, and the fourth was also about investigating the source of a massive spatial cataclysm. According to the official synopsis, “Star Trek: Discovery” season 5…

“…finds Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well… dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.”

Jonathan Frakes, who has directed numerous episodes of “Discovery” including some in season 5, has assured audiences that the series will conclude in a satisfying way. The showrunners didn’t know the series was going to be canceled when they were making this season, however, so it will not be a season of teary farewells are grand wrap-ups. It will be merely another adventure. There’s something refreshing about that. 

“Star Trek: Discovery” season 5 premieres April 4, 2024, on Paramount+.
