Jonathan Frakes Lets An Awesome Star Trek: Discovery SPOILER Slip

Star Trek is finally returning to television… sort of. Star Trek: Discovery will debut on CBS on September 24, though all the following episodes will not air on traditional television, instead dropping on the streaming service CBS All Access, in the States. The show is most unique in its proximity to the timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series, set only ten years before the five-year mission of the U.S.S. Enterprise, as helmed by Captain James T. Kirk.

SPOILERS!!! ahead for Star Trek: Discovery. You’ve been warned. reports that Jonathan Frakes, the Star Trek legend, revealed the plot of one of the episodes of Discovery on a Star Trek: The Next Generation cast reunion panel. Said information was then shared by the Star Trek-themed band 5 Year Mission on Twitter, as they were performing at the event as well.

That’s right, we’re getting yet another wonderful trip to the mirror universe, which first appeared in The Original Series episode “Mirror, Mirror.” The mirror universe was later also featured in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Enterprise. No word yet on how many goatees will be present this go-around.

If you are wondering why Frakes has such information to share — he was a cast member on Star Trek: The Next Generation, after all — he is directing an episode of Discovery, though he is not directing the Discovery’s trip to the mirror universe. Frakes has directed several episodes of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager previously, as well as the films Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection.

Are you excited for a trip back to the mirror universe? Or are you tired of seeing it across so many series in so many years? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
