Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Plot
The show is still under production for season 4. So, we cannot surely say what will happen for season 4. But now that season 3 is done, we can guess our theories for the show. The fourth season of the American television series Star Trek: Discovery follows the crew of U.S.S. Discovery and the show’s events follow the 900 years ahead story after Star Trek: The Original Series.
In season 3, the crew had to rebuild the remains of the galaxy after it was hit by ‘The Burn.’ This invincible anomaly destroyed the federation and revealed its cause in the season finale, setting up an expected plot for season 4.
Season 3 also introduced the first trans actor to the Star Trek franchise, Ian Alexander as Gray.
“I am really grateful because this is opening the door for so many other people.” Said, Alexander. “Trans people have been erased from history for so long, but we’ve always been here. Now we finally get to be visible and have our voices heard. It’s empowering to know how much safer the world is becoming for us.” he added.
Alexander as Gray is also returning for season 4 as his character will be significantly involved in season 4.
Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise, the showrunners, have also confirmed that season 4 will continue using the more episodic structure of season 3 rather than the long season arcs of Seasons 1 and 2.
Star Trek: Discovery season 4 plot will undoubtedly explore more with the crew upcoming in their shiny grey uniforms. The show will explore themes like action, adventure, drama, and science-fiction, and for the Spock fans, there is a lot more coming.
