With the second-half of the series’ freshman season set to premiere on the streaming service on January 7th, 2018, CBS All Access has started prepping Star Trek: Discovery fans for a new year and new episodes with the release of character profile posters and the titles for remaining episodes 10-15 of Season One. But just because war is being waged in front of the camera, that doesn’t mean there isn’t some time for the cast and crew to have some fun and blow off some steam behind the scenes.

In a new series of photos released by CBS All Access through Entertainment Weekly, Star Trek fans get a glimpse at the goings-on behind the camera along with some commentary to enjoy:

The episode titles are: 10 – “Despite Yourself;” 11 – “The Wolf Inside;” 12 – “Vaulting Ambition;” 13 – “What’s Past is Prologue;” 14 – “The War Without, The War Within; ” and 15 – “Will You Take My Hand?”

A week later, four new black-and-white posters were released for Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), Lt. Saru (Doug Jones), and Voq (hmm…):
