Buckle up, Discovery fans – the Star Trek: Discovery actors are promising an unexpected ending. Plus: Fan reactions to the show have been noted.
Speaking with TrekCore at last weekend’s PaleyFest, some of the Discovery actors spoke about what is yet to come.
“I personally think that the end of the season is going to be tremendous,” said Ethan Peck. “When [Kurtzman] first told me about it I was like in tears. I just had chills.”
“As I read the final script for Season 2, my jaw dropped, and I’m dumbfounded with where we’re headed,” said Doug Jones. “So I think the fans can expect to boldly go where no Star Trek series has ever gone before.”
“Expect the unexpected, is what my mother always says; and it couldn’t be more true, especially on this season, cause it’ll change everything,” said Wilson Cruz. Cruz also added that Hugh Culber’s readjusting to life will continue in the third season.
“I think that the last few episodes will really close the circle for people,” said Anthony Rapp. “If we’ve done our job, what was on the page…in the scripts, closes the circle. It answers the questions that are lingering and remaining for people of how we fit in. And I believe very strongly that it will leave people satisfied.
“As someone who cares about continuity, to some degree, I was like, ‘If this doesn’t make people happy, I don’t know what else we can do.'”
SyFy Wire also reported on PaleyFest and they quoted Alex Kurtzman regarding online fan commentary on the series. “We are entirely aware of everyone’s questions and criticisms,” he said. “I’ve read everything, and I see where everyone’s like, ‘Well, the spore drive never existed!’ and ‘What, Discovery was never around!’ and all of those things; we’re totally aware. You will get an answer.”
