Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - Teaser, Character Roundup, Official Trailer

STAR TREK


original

For anyone who doesn't know, the latest new Star Trek production will be an immediate prequel to the original 1966 television show, taking place on the original Enterprise when Christopher Pike was captain.

If you've ever seen the original series episode "The Menagerie," or perhaps the unaired pilot "The Cage," then you know that the good old NCC 1701 (no bloody A, B, C, or D, as Scotty might say) was seeking out new life and new civilizations well before James T. Kirk.

Set to premiere May 5th on Paramount+, here's a short synopsis provided by Paramount:

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The all-new series will feature fan favorites from season two of Star Trek: Discovery, Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. The series will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock and Number One in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.

A few weeks ago a short teaser was released, and this past week several character promos started appearing online, one after another, leading up to today's release of an official trailer. I've compiled them all here in order of release. (the new official trailer is last)

no bloody A, B, C,orD,

Love it.

Smart move by the producers.  Anson Mount sort of stole the show without really trying in Discovery.  They really either needed to keep him on the show, or give him something else to do.  More Captain Christopher Pike.  I can live with that.

I agree. He was awesome on Discovery.

I am sooo looking forward to this show, and after watching the character clips I'm already especially liking Ortegas and Hemmer.

Oh, and glad Spock got rid of that horrible beard, but who's doing his hair now, and when do they get fired?

It's like somebody tried to do the Spock bangs, and a Caesar-type hairstyle on the side, and it ends up a hot mess.  They're trying too hard.

I'm not sure how I'm going to like Nurse Chapel.  If the character hadn't had a precedent, I think I'd like her.  But she's so different from the original that I feel like I'm being disloyal to Majel Barrett.

Yeah, Nurse Chapel seems completely different. I thought she was boringly bland, too, but it was only a 30 second clip. Maybe she'll be more interesting in the actual show.

This looks like the best one yet. Of course, I am enjoying Picard, but this one looks like a blast. Thanks for posting all of these!
