Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is warping towards its release on Paramount Plus. The series, which follows the adventures of Captain Christopher Pike launches on the platform on May 5. And eager to ensure we are suitably excited, the streamer has given the order to launch the promo campaign with an injection of impulse power. We’ve seen the introduction of new cadets, further additions to the engine room crew, and even welcomed back some old friends.
And today, the streamer has debuted a ninth new character showcase. Just hours after we were introduced to Cadet Nyota Uhura and Lieutenant La’An; Lieutenant Ortegas, Hemmer; Dr. M’Benga, Christine Chapel, Mr. Spock, and Number One it’s time to reunite with the Captain of the U.S.S Enterprise. The legendary Captain Christopher Pike. Check out the promo below.

Anson Mount made a lasting impression when he appeared as Christopher Pike in Star Trek: Discovery’s second season. A major contributing factor when it came time to greenlight Strange New Worlds. But with the character’s adventures between “The Cage” and “The Menagerie” largely virgin territory, there’s plenty of time for some weekly episodic fun. How Pike will overcome the knowledge that his fate is already sealed remains to be seen. But with Pike in the Captain’s chair, and the fate of the galaxy at stake, the U.S.S Enterprise looks to be in very safe hands.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds stars Anson Mount as Captain Pike, Rebecca Romjin as Number One, and Ethan Peck as Spock. Joining them are Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’an Noonien-Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as Cadet Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as Lt. Erica Ortegas, Babs Olusanmokun as Dr. M’Benga and Bruce Horak as Hemmer.
The series premieres on Paramount+ in the US on May 5, 2022.
