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.
The Enterprise is en route to Deep Space K-7 when it receives another priority assignment to investigate the missing USS Peregrine. While Enterprise continues to K-7, Pike leads an away team to an ice planet where they find the grounded Peregrine. Hemmer and Uhura restore the ship’s systems while Pike learns that it was carrying three refugees. One was infected with Gorn eggs which hatched, with the hatchlings bursting from his body and attacking the crew. Pike’s team finds the other two refugees to be the only survivors. One of them, Buckley, is also infected with Gorn eggs, and the hatchlings burst out. They attack the team, but they also fight each other until only the strongest hatchling is left. The team form a successful plan to kill the hatchling using cold temperatures from the ship’s environment controls, but not before Hemmer is infected. He encourages Uhura to remain in Starfleet before throwing himself from the ship so he will die in the cold along with the Gorn inside him. After the crew mourn Hemmer, Noonien-Singh takes a leave of absence to help the last refugee find her family.
