Watch Star Trek: Discovery's Captain Pike return in new Short Treks trailer
Captain Christopher Pike is finally making his much-anticipated comeback to the Star Trek universe.
While Captain Pike's (Anson Mount) return to Star Trek: Short Treks was confirmed by Discovery co-creator Alex Kurtzman at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, we now have a first look at the character in the new Short Treks teaser released ahead of next week's episode 'Ask Not'.
The episode's official synopsis reads: "When an attack on Starbase 28 leaves a surprise prisoner under Cadet Thira Sidhu's (Amrit Kaur) watch, she is faced with making a decision that may threaten her standing in Starfleet."
In the 30-second teaser, Pike comes up against newcomer Cadet Thira Sidhu, telling her: "I need you to let me out of here."
"You're a prisoner," Thira replies. "Your orders carry no weight anymore."
"Cadet, I am giving you a direct order to release me," responds Pike. "When this is all done, you'll never see the inside of a starship again."
Honestly, we're just excited to see Pike back inside of a starship.
Apart from the Captain, Kurtzman also confirmed the return of Spock actor Ethan Peck, who'll star alongside Number One (Rebecca Romijn).
Talking about the characters' return, Kurtzman teased at the time: "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."
