We're only a couple of weeks away from the end of the second season of Discovery - oh for the good old days of 26 episode seasons, this has gone too fast! - and the recent Paleyfest shined a light on that ending, one that the cast are equally excited to see. SyFy spoke to many of the cast involved in the incoming finale.
Producer Alex Kurtzman broached the common criticism that Discovery doesn't skew as close to Prime Universe canon as it might)
“We are entirely aware of everyone’s questions and criticisms; 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.
“We will synch up with canon, and obviously if you know the story of Captain Pike, you know what his fate was. It won’t be exactly what you think this season, but we will be consistent with that story. There will be a dimension shed on that story that you will not have known or have thought of.”
