Everything About  ‘Star Trek: Strange New World’ 

The crew of the USS Enterprise and Captain Christopher Pike explores strange new worlds all through the galaxy in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The series is set before The Original Series of Star Trek and features Spock, Number One, and Pike. The  producer of Strange New Worlds, Henry Meyers made a joke that “The Cage(1965), also known as the 1st pilot episode of this Series starring the very same protagonists, could be considered the series’ pilot, continuing to make it “the biggest pilot series in television history.”

In May 2020, the executive producer of the show Akiva Goldsman told Variety, “We’re planning to try to bring back certain traditional values of Trek, to be positive, and try to bring more episodes.”. They also said, “Of course, we’ll start focusing on the encoded nature of the cast of the show and plot development. But I believe our stories will be more conclusive than those in Discovery or Picard.”

Alonso also described the show as “the classic mode of Star Trek,” in the sense that the “stories have always been told the same way they were before. “It’s just a ship that’s attempting peculiar new worlds, and we’re going to be telling big ideas of science fantasy adventures in episodic format.” As a result, we’ll have more opportunities to see new aliens, and learn about new cultures.”

“If you assume a return to the initial series, it was subtly more liberal – I don’t mean in the context of politics, but this idea can be more fluid,” said writer Aleka Cooper to The Hollywood Reporter in April 2021. Robert Bloch, for example, would occasionally write a horror show. “Or Harlan Ellison’s ‘City on the Edge of Forever,’ a hard sci-fi novel,” he explained.

“After that, comedy episodes such as ‘Shore Leave’ or ‘The Trouble with Tribbles’ would air.” As a result, Henry Myers and I are attempting to meet that need. Serialized storytelling has become very popular among us, myself included. Picard is heavily serialized, but Strange New Worlds is a weekly adventure with serialized character arcs.”
