Captain Pike confronts a ghost from his past and returns to Rigel VII in our preview of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds S2:E4
We are just days away from the latest episode of the new season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and a return to Rigel VII awaits.
Ahead of the season launch, our reviewer Carl Roberts shared his initial thoughts on the first six episodes of the season. And needless to say, he had a blast (read his reviews here). Moreover, we also added a full episode 2.3 review for you to enjoy over a Romulan Ale or two. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s get the latest intel from Starfleet command because this week heralds a return to the classic Star Trek planet Rigel VII.
And in typical fashion, chaos ensues and thrusts Pike into a confrontation with his past. But fear not cadets. We will be on hand to bring you weekly updates and the latest episode stills from this and every episode. And that continues right here. So grab your Tricorders and set a course for the S2:E4. Maximum warp!
AMONG THE LOTUS EATERS
The crew of the starship Enterprise is back, and for this week’s episode, we return to the legendary Rigel VII. The planet has an infamous legacy in Star Trek lore. And this adventure reunites Pike with a ghost from his past. What’s more, every member of the landing party quickly forgets who they are leaving Spock to unravel the mystery before it’s too late. Read on and get the full intel.
Returning to a planet that dredges up tragic memories, Captain Pike and his landing party find themselves forgetting everything, including their own identities as he confronts a ghost from his past.
