Captain Christopher Pike, Number One and Science Officer Spock made their first appearances in Star Trek: Discovery during the show’s second season. These versions of known characters in the franchise quickly grew a following.
Today, CBS All Access announced a series order for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which will focus on the exploits of these previously introduced fan favorites. It will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock and Number One as they travel to new worlds in the galaxy on board the U.S.S. Enterprise.
Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck will reprise their roles for the new show. The first episode was written by Akiva Goldsman with the story by Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. Goldsman, Kurtzman and Lumet will serve as executive producers along with Henry Alonso Myers, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. Aaron Baiers, Akela Cooper and Davy Perez will serve as co-executive producers.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds marks another addition to the “Star Trek” franchise on the streaming service, which already has Star Trek: Picard and the previously mentioned Star Trek: Discovery. Planned for the future are the animated Star Trek: Lower Decks and a Section-31 based series starring Michelle Yeoh.
