Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (2022): S01E01 – Strange New Worlds


Introduction

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is an American television series created by Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet for the streaming service Paramount+.

It is the eleventh series in the Star Trek franchise, and a spin-off from Star Trek: Discovery, which centres on Captain Christopher Pike and the crew of the starship USS Enterprise as they explore new worlds throughout the galaxy during the decade before Star Trek: The Original Series.

Outline

In the 23rd century, Starfleet Admiral Robert April recalls Captain Christopher Pike of the starship USS Enterprise from shore leave after Pike’s first officer, Una Chin-Riley (referred to as “Number One”), goes missing during a first contact mission. Pike is reluctant to return to space, and confides in Vulcan science officer Spock – who has just become engaged to T’Pring – that he saw a vision of his own paralysis during their mission with the USS Discovery. They travel to the planet Kiley 279, which is in a similar state to 21st century Earth and on the brink of civil war. They have reverse-engineered a weapon from starship warp drives after witnessing the Discovery mission in nearby space. Pike and his crew rescue Number One from captivity, and break Starfleet’s General Order 1 by interfering in the society to convince them not to use the weapon. They avoid repercussions because of the top secret nature of the Discovery mission, but Starfleet doubles-down on the rule by renaming it the Prime Directive. Pike recommits to his role, and captains the Enterprise on a new five-year mission of exploration.
