Captain Christopher Pike gets his “Motion Picture” moment in the first clip from Paramount+’s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds beams onto Paramount+ screens in the United States next week. And fans the world over are already getting more animated than a Tribble at a Klingon banquet. And while the wait continues for an official UK release date, today’s reveal of the nostalgic opening titles has dialed our excitement to eleven. But if that isn’t enough to have you getting ready to run a diagnostic on the warp core; Paramount+ has shared a new clip from the series, and it reveals Captain Pike getting his iconic “Motion Picture” moment.
Much like James T. Kirk in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the clip reveals the moment when Captain Pike first lays eyes on U.S.S Enterprise in drydock – refitted and ready to set off on her five-year mission. It’s a glorious sight. One that will have fans of The Original Series reliving the iconic moments of yesteryear, and rightly so. But don’t take my word for it. Opening hailing frequencies and hit the play button below.
Make no mistake, this is pure unadulterated Star Trek at its finest. And if this is a taste of things to come, Strange New Worlds will easily become the most successful series of the modern era. And that is an exciting prospect!
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.
