Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 is underway, after Thursday night's premiere episode, "Brother," aired. The USS Discovery has a new captain, Michael Burnham must face down (possibly literal) demons from her past, and the hunt is on for a set of mysterious signals that appear all across the Federation. Things are looking good so far for the season.

Even so, it's been almost a year since Season 1 of Discovery ended, and no doubt, you've had to reallocate space in your brain for other important things in the interim. So, in case you need a refresher on what happened last time around, or if you're ready to experience the sci-fi epic for the first time, here's what you need to know about Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery.

The new show has been somewhat divisive among longtime fans, due to canonical oddities, a darker tone and less scientific rigor than the previous shows had. But it's also an excellent piece of television, combining unpredictable character arcs and satisfying twists with a story that isn't afraid to shake up the status quo.
