Paramount+ is locking phasers in advance of the latest new series in the Star Trek saga, releasing the first official trailer for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which debuts next month on the streamer. The series follows Captain Christopher Pike and the USS Enterprise crew in the decade before the original Star Trek series’ time frame.
The new series will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Latin America, Australia and the Nordics on Thursday, May 5. Following the premiere, new episodes of the 10-episode-long season will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays in the US.
The series stars Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. Also in the cast are Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’an Noonien-Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as Cadet Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as Lt. Erica Ortegas and Babs Olusanmokun as Dr. M’Benga, and features recurring guest star Bruce Horak as Hemmer.
The trailer was released over the weekend, but not everyone was impressed.
I just caught up on the Watchmen series, won’t be watching a second. They will not rest until they have ruined absolutely everything for everyone

No. And to be perfectly honest, connecting Star Trek and Kurtzman together isn’t exactly a selling point.
But who knows, maybe Hollywood will surprise me? Will find out in the spoiler reviews. 🤷🏻♂️
