First, David Ajala (Supergirl) is joining the show as “Cleveland Booker, ” but no other details about his character was announced. Ajala said during the panel that his character will “break the rules a little bit.”

The panel at SDCC also revealed that the USS Discovery did not actually end up at its expected destination when it went through the wormhole at the end of season two. Alex Kurtzman says Michael Burnham “goes through a lot of changes, ” and that she bears the responsibility for sending the crew 1,000 years into the future.

Speaking about the time jump, Kurtzman says that they will still be able to honor continuity, but still be able to “shake things up.”

No official word yet on when the third season will debut.
