Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (2022): S01E05 – Spock Amok


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

The crew go on shore leave while the Enterprise undergoes repairs at Starbase 1. Number One and Noonien-Singh apprehend two ensigns conducting an unauthorised spacewalk as part of a game played by lower-ranked crew members called “Enterprise Bingo”. Learning they have reputations as “fun-killers”, the pair successfully try the game themselves. The half-human Spock has grown concerned that T’Pring thinks he is becoming too human. He plans to spend his shore leave reconnecting with her, but April interrupts to ask Pike and Spock for help negotiating with the R’ongovians who are considering allying with the Federation, Klingons, or Romulans. After discussing his relationship with Chapel, Spock undertakes a special mind meld ceremony with T’Pring so they can understand each other better. This accidentally causes them to switch katras, effectively swapping bodies. Spock attempts to carry out T’Pring’s work convincing lapsed Vulcans to return to logic while T’Pring helps Pike succeed with the negotiations. M’Benga and Chapel later switch Spock and T’Pring’s katras back to their proper bodies.
