While Star Trek has certainly never made any moves to slow down, recent years have seen a particularly large yield of new content across various new series – and it peaked with the charmingly nostalgic Strange New Worlds. This wondrous prequel to the original series faithfully captures the warmth of Trek’s bygone era while paving a fresh future for the franchise. It’s an utter delight throughout, with Hell on Wheels’ Anson Mount stealing the show as Captain Pike – if you don’t fall madly in love with him, there’s something wrong with you. True fans’ hearts belong to Cullen Bohannon, though…
This is without a doubt the best new Trek in years – and that’s saying something, as Picard continues to earn rave reviews while animated comedy series Lower Decks has proved itself a firm fan favourite. Strange New Worlds is a love letter to sci-fi adventure of old, and fits like a cosy, warm jumper. It’s something special, that’s for sure.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The 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.
