Star Trek Strange New Worlds S2.E5 Official Stills

Spock’s Vulcan DNA is removed making him fully human and facing T’Pring’s family in our preview of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds S2:E5

We are just days away from the latest episode of the new season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and this week, Spock is in for a rollercoaster ride. Literally! 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 2.4 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 finds Spock losing his Vulcan DNA and entertaining T’Pring’s family!

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:E5. Maximum warp!


In this week’s episode of Strange New Worlds, Spock’s Vulcan DNA is removed by aliens. Now fully human, the usually calm science officer must face down a visit from T’Pring and her parents.  And in typical fashion, her family is naturally strict and disapproving. Thankfully, Spock’s mother Amanda (Mia Kirshner) is on hand to offer her paternal support. But is her guidance enough to save Spock from the indignity of being shamed by his Vulcan in-laws? Read on and get the full intel.

A shuttle accident leads to Spock’s Vulcan DNA being removed by aliens, making him fully human and completely unprepared to face T’Pring’s family during an important ceremonial dinner.
