Don’t read this if you haven’t watched the second season of Star Trek: Discovery yet.
The latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery has seen the return of a key gay character Hugh Culber.
The sci-fi series, currently airing on CBS all Access and Netflix, included a first for the franchise – by featuring two gay officers who are in a relationship.
But Culber, a medical officer on the Discovery played by Wilson Cruz, was killed off in the first season. He was the partner of science officer Paul Stamets, played by actor Anthony Rapp.
Culber’s comeback occurs in the episode Saints of Imperfection, as Stamets and Starfleet mutineer Michael Burnham – played by Sonequa Martin-Green – rescue character Sylvia Tilly.
