Star Trek Discovery’s Anson Mount says goodbye to Captain Pike ahead of season 2 finale

Anson Mount has bid a fond farewell to Star Trek Discovery and thanked his fans for their continuous support as his final episodes aired in the series finale.

The actor, who has won fans over with his role as the tough but fair Captain Pike for the USS Enterprise, made one last voyage with his team in the season two finale.

Taking a moment to celebrate his character and the fandom around the show, sharing a photo from his final episode a few hours before it aired.

He wrote: ‘Tonight’s the night. Thank you to CBS All Access, Star Trek, CBS TV Studios, Alex Kurtzman, the entire writing staff, Sonequa Martin-Green, the entire cast & crew and, most importantly, TO THE FANS.

‘It’s been a hell of a ride. Thank you for letting me take it.’

While his time on Star Trek Discovery is over, it appears that Mount isn’t against coming back to the universe for another round, and told fans he was ‘touched and humbled’ last week when a petition started making the rounds for Pike to get his own spin off.

Sharing an article online, he said: ‘I am humbled and deeply touched by this amount of love. I have NEVER received such gratitude.

‘Please know that my own gratitude at having been given the opportunity to walk in Captain Pike’s boots is equalled only by that which I feel for the Trek family’s devotion. Seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart.’

After he shared his goodbyes, fans follows suit and celebrated the character – who becomes the Captain of the Enterprise before Captain Kirk takes the wheel.

‘Couldn’t imagine a better captain to have in the chair. It’s been a joy watching you bring new life to a classic character,’ one fan wrote.

Star Trek: Discovery is available to catch up now on Netflix.
