Star Trek: Discovery boss teases a return for Spock and more key characters
Star Trek: Discovery's boss has teased the possibility of seeing Spock (Ethan Peck), Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and Number One (Rebecca Romijn) after their introduction in season two.
Producer Alex Kurtzman opened up about fan speculation that the three characters could appear in a spin-off, and it seems it's an idea that's been discussed.
"I would be remiss in saying you're going to see Spock again on Discovery because we’ve obviously jumped so far into the future that it wouldn't make sense," he told Deadline's Crew Call podcast.
"But the idea of bringing Ethan [Peck] back, and Anson [Mount] and Rebecca [Romijn] and the Enterprise, I mean, we loved it so much, and to find a way to do that is definitely something we're thinking about."
Peck and Mount have expressed interest in returning, the former telling TV Guide earlier this year: "I would like to come back, because being a part of Star Trek is like magic. It's funny, I think Star Trek is so divisive amongst people in the world that are like, 'Never seen it, not interested.'
"And those that do see it are very attached and find themselves very connected with it. To be a part of something like that is just really special.
"Now I feel like I've done a lot of the groundwork and Spock is very much a part of me. I'm the same but different having finished it. So would I like to continue? Yeah. I think it would be great."
Star Trek: Discovery is streaming on CBS All Access in the US, and Netflix in the UK.
