Head up and fasten your seat belts for Star Trek Discovery Season 5. Following the trend of Discovery’s seasons growing shorter (season 1 had 15 episodes, season 2 had 14 episodes, and seasons 3 and 4 had 13 episodes each), Paramount commissioned only 10 episodes for the fifth season. Filming began on June 13th.
After the events of Season 4, we know that the galaxy and universe are in a bit more harmony now that Michael Burnham and company have defeated the Dark Matter Anomaly and even helped restore Earth to the Federation. It was a 31st Century win for the crew who’s been the operating way in the future after the second season’s events.

Star Trek Discovery Season 5 plot
The trailer for Star Trek Discovery season 5 hints that Burnham and her crew will embark on a galaxy-spanning treasure hunt. However, there will be plenty of time for other adventures. Here are some avenues we think the show might want to explore alongside the treasure hunt:
The series will focus on what’s next for Book. The last time we saw him, he was helping people the D.M.A had hurt, even though it meant that the villainous Tarka would punish him. However, that doesn’t have to be the end of his story. The show may explore his new direction.
Another likely plotline for Star Trek Discovery season 5 is the Federation’s attempt to regain power after ‘The Burn’ damaged its reputation. Earth is due to rejoin, which could show viewers how the organization tries to become a positive force once again.
Star Trek Day provided a broad, vague overview of the plot, which fits into the treasure hunt theme. The description reads: “Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S Discovery uncover a mystery that sends them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But they are not alone in their quest… dangerous foes desperate to claim the prize for themselves will stop at nothing to get it.”
Star Trek Discovery season 5 will develop the crew’s relationships, which has been one of the show’s main themes. Many unlikely friendships (such as Tilly and Saru) have become essential to the series. In Star Trek Discovery season 5, Michael Burnham will grow as a captain with the help of Saru and her other experienced staff.
Star Trek Discovery Season 5 Cast: Who is in it?
Sonequa Martin-Green will continue her role as Captain Michael Burnham, but an official cast list hasn’t been released yet. Most likely, all of your favorite stars from the show will be back, including Doug Jones playing a Starfleet Kelpien named Saru and Anthony Rapp playing Paul Stamets. Additionally, Mary Wiseman will return as Sylvia Tilly, David Ajala as Cleveland ‘Book’ Booker, Wilson Cruz as Hugh Culber, and Tig Notaro Jett Reno.
