'Star Trek: Discovery' Outtake Photos Reveal Awesome Easter Eggs

After the USS Discovery makes it back from the Klingon homeworld in the Season 1 finale of Star Trek: Discovery, the crew gets their fair share of medals at Federation headquarters in Paris on Earth. And now, CBS has released a few detailed photos of stuff we didn’t get to see in the episode very clearly, including Admiral Cornwell’s medals. And they are a near perfect match for Captain Kirk’s medals in the original series.

Spoilers for the Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 finale ahead.

On Monday, CBS released more photos from the Season 1 finale, “Will You Take My Hand?” In addition to a heartwarming photo of the entire Discovery bridge crew, it also featured a shot of Admiral Cornwell’s medals. If you look closely, the triangular cluster of awards is similar to what Kirk and others wore on their dress uniforms in the original series.

Cornwell is obviously a highly decorated Starfleet officer, but now, after the events of the entire first season of Discovery, so is the crew of that titular ship. As many fans have noticed the actual bridge crew of the Discovery didn’t start out as being central to the story but has slowly become a bigger deal. This new “class photo” shot sort of solidifies it, perhaps suggesting some members of this gang will get more screen time in the second season.

'Avengers: Endgame': Here's Why Thanos Waited for This Villain to Die First

So this might be why Thanos waited until the last minute to strike.

In terms of raw strength, Thanos may be one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But shortly before his arrival in Avengers: Infinity War, there was another villain who could have given his purple alien ass a serious run for his money: Hela, Thor’s secret sister and the villain of 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. So, here’s a thought: Did Thanos wait until Hela was gone before he began collecting the Infinity Stones?

Everything We Know About 'Love, Death & Robots' Season 2 Isn't Much

Netflix bizarre, hypnotic new series will probably get a second season.

Netflix’s new NSFW anthological animated sci-fi series is unlike anything else on the streaming service, and we’re already wondering if we can expect a Love, Death & Robots Season 2, full of even more hyper-sexualized and sometimes gruesome sci-fi stories.

Love, Death & Robots Season 1 hit Netflix on Friday, March 15, 2019, offering 18 different stories of varied lengths between 6 and 17 minutes long, each telling a totally unique story using different animation styles.

'Avengers: Endgame' Tony Stark Spoilers: Is the Trailer Lying to Us?

Now, with the latest full trailer released Thursday, we get the full-on spoiler that Tony Stark survives his space adventure and makes it back to Earth. There, they team up with the rest of the heroes to build some cool white suits and then … do something!

Here's Where the Magnifying Glass Sits on the Treasure Map in 'Fortnite'

Look for the ice statues.

There’s a new challenge in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale for Season 8, Week 3 that should also feel very familiar to players — it’s a fusion of two things we’re all used to doing.

Week 3 began Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, about 90 minutes later than usual, and even more delayed than Week 2. We predicted that treasure map challenges would return in Season 8, and here in Week 3, they have returned … sort of.

Where to Find the Secret Battle Star in 'Fortnite' Season 8, Week 3

More giant faces in the landscape.

Fortnite: Battle Royale’s Season 8 Discovery challenges continue in Week 3 with a fun new loading screen inspired by Indiana Jones, except this time around, it’s the female Sidewinder skin stealing some treasure from an ancient ruin.

Week 3 kicked off Thursday morning a little bit later than usual, but once players complete seven new challenges — like finding where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map loading screen — they’ll be able to claim a secret battle star.
