A month before the May 5 premiere, Paramount+ released a new trailer for the highly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery spin-off called Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

Nearly a decade before the original series, Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck played Christopher Pike, Number One and Spock from the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. The ten-episode series is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike was at the helm of the USS Enterprise. The show revolves around Pike and his crew and follows them to explore new worlds across the galaxy.

Meanwhile, Celia Rose Gooding will replace Nickel Nichols as young Nyota Uhura, Babs Olusunmokun as Dr. Uhura. m’benga; Jess Bush played Christine Chappelle’s sister; Melissa Navai plays Lieutenant Erica Ortegas; Bruce Orak plays Hemer, an Ainar who is blind in one eye, and Christina Chong plays Laen Noonien Singh (a relative of the villain Khan from Star Trek).

The series premiere was written and directed by Akiva Goldsman from a story by Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. Co-showrunners are Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers. Goldsman will also continue as an executive producer on Star Trek: Picard.

In addition, Paramount+’s original Star Trek: Picard dropped to number five, according to Parrot Analytics’ US Digital Origins rankings, after a 1.3% increase in total viewership, 32.3 times the average demand. Week from March 28 to April 1. During the week of March 7, the series was number two on the original digital chart, up nine spots from the eleventh week earlier. The drop could be attributed to the latest season of Bridgeton, which catapulted the Netflix show to number one and HBO Max’s new series Our Flag Means Death to number two. Netflix recently reported that Bridgeton broke the record for the best opening weekend of any English-language series on its service.

According to Goldsman, when he spoke to Variety about a new show in 2020:

We will try to return to some of Pokhod’s classic values, be optimistic and more relevant. Obviously, we will take advantage of the streamlined nature of character and story creation. But I think our stories will go much further than what you saw in Discovery or Picard.

His comments were intended to respond to some of the criticism that has sprung up around another Paramount+ Star Trek series that some say forgot Gene Roddenberry’s upbeat, futuristic visions.

Paramount+ has already greenlit a second season of Strange New Worlds, starring Paul Wesley as the future captain of the Enterprise. James T. Kirk.

Let’s hope this new series hits the digital charts and continues its legacy as one of the most culturally influential works of science fiction.

Star Trek: Stranger New Worlds will air exclusively on Paramount+ in the US.
