So cool getting a look at Rebecca Romijn as Number One, alongside Anson Mounts Captain Pike... Interesting seeing Spock rocking the full-on hippy beard, lol. Im still a little apprehensive about this show even after mostly liking the first season. It was, sadly, not without some glaring issues. And, that even continues on into the first Short Treks episode, recently released. Ill be checking into season 2without hesitation. I just hope that they get more right with it, than wrong, as it continues onward.
