First Star Trek: Strange New Worlds teaser trailer gives us a look at Pike’s backstory

The first Star Trek: Strange New Worlds teaser trailer is here

After showing the first full-length Star Trek: Strange New Worlds trailer during a ViacomCBS investor conference in February, Paramount has finally released the trailer to the public, giving fans their first proper look at this show’s characters, some new and exciting locations, familiar music, and a glimpse at the Enterprise.

Following the chirp of a communicator, we hear a male voice say to Pike:

“Chris — I need you back, captain.”

As visuals from the upcoming series are shown, we hear a female voiceover:

“No matter how many stars there are in the sky.

And no matter how many galaxies swirl beyond our own.

No matter what the mathematical probabilities or the number of times we say ‘we are not alone in the universe.’

Our first visit from the stars is always the province of children’s stories and science fiction.

Until one day… it isn’t.”

Official synopsis:

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.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is due to premiere on May 5, 2022, and has already been renewed for a second season. The show stars Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Ethan Peck as Spock, and Rebecca Romijn as Una Chin-Riley (a.k.a. Number One), all of whom are reprising their roles from Star Trek: Discovery season two. Other announced cast members include Babs Olusanmokun (Dr. M’Benga), Christina Chong (La’an Noonien Singh), Celia Rose Gooding (Cadet Nyota Uhura), Jess Bush (Nurse Christine Chapel), Melissa Navia (Lt. Erica Ortegas), and Bruce Horak (Hemmer).
