    Kras needs to become the main, recurring Klingon adversary to Pike. A bloodthirsty, sadistic psychopath hellbent on destroying the Enterprise and restarting the Klingon War.

    So Babs Olusanmokun is coming into a regular Trek role after just having had a small but memorable part in a Dune movie, just like Patrick Stewart did all those decades ago

    According to Production Weekly, SNW Season 2 starts production Feb 1st. Pre Production started November 1st.

    The working title is Lily & Issac. I wonder what that's a reference to.

    I have no good reason to base this guess on but I will do it anyways. Lily and Issac are Pike's parents. Series opens with the Enterprise at Earth about to go out on a 5 year mission. Pike has returned home and maybe Spock has come with him for company. He tells his parents about his fate about ending up in the chair. Meanwhile back on the ship Number One is welcoming new crew members aboard. One of them gets in a fight and ends up in the brig. Number One helps them deal with whatever issue they are having that will be character oriented. She wants it taken care of before Pike and Spock return. The episode ends with the ship getting a mission or distress call or something and that will play into whatever the second episode is.

    Given Pike's background, Lily and Issac could be biblical references, likely in reference to the crucifixion.

    There's a direct Old/New Testament parallel between Isaac and Christ. And there were lilies at Gethsemane (which is why they're so popular on Easter).

    It's really reaching, though. I'm just basing it on the fact there was so much biblical subtext and symbolism in the first two seasons of Disco.
