    I believe it's kinda the whole point of season 2.

  • Yeah, if you're currently watching the show, beware of any answers to this, as they could completely a major plot point.

    You DO NOT want the answer to this question. It's kinda the whole point of the entire show. That's already saying too much. In fact, -1, because this is akin to asking what rosebud means. Your welcome.

    @Mazura That's not a reason to downvote. How would OP know that's spoiler-capable? Sep 19, 2019 at 16:30

Okay, as spoiler-free as possible:

The Red Angel is a mysterious entity or phenomenon witnessed by Starfleet in various locations around the galaxy. It was given its name by a person who had also seen it many years in the past.

Season 2 of the series is largely about the search for the nature of the Red Angel.

As the comments have pointed out, this link has more information, but even glancing at the page could give away important plot revelations.
