CBS All Access the streaming network in the states for all things Trek, announced on Friday a new Star Trek Show “Strange New Worlds”. It will be starring Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. These three characters were in Season 2 of Discovery.
For me personally this is good news as Captain Pike was the best thing about Discovery full stop, it also appears they are moving back towards a more optimistic approach to this show. Discovery is almost unwatchable for me and the only thing keeping me watching Picard is Patrick Stewart.
Obviously with the current lockdown this want start filming until things have settled down a bit so we could be looking at late 2021 or early 2022.
For me Star Trek has always been about a better future and having an hopeful message, so I am really looking forward to this show.
