Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Official Description

Season four of Star Trek: Discovery finds Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery facing a threat unlike any they’ve ever encountered.  With Federation and non-Federation worlds alike feeling the impact, they must confront the unknown and work together to ensure a hopeful future for all.

So What Did You Think?

Season 4 of Star Trek: Discovery is looking awesome from what is seen in this teaser. It appears that this is continuing to build on the foundational principles of Star Trek that Star Trek: Discovery leaned into last season. It looks like there will be a lot of energy put into bringing different groups and peoples together to face this galactic threat. Bringing different people together has been something that I’ve appreciated from Star Trek. How far and how successful Burnham and crew go for this will be interesting to see. However, it does look like this threat could lead to a continued rebuilding of the Federation. I can’t wait to see if this is true and if it is, how it happens!

The threat is a gravitational anomaly that’s five light-years wide. It appears that it can move around and also cause quite a lot of damage, judging by what it looks to have done to Discovery. It also appears that a certain Kelpian former captain may be returning to Discovery. As first officer perhaps? There are lots of details to be found in watching and rewatching this teaser. There are new characters, old characters, new uniforms, and quite a bit more!
