The Survivors of the Klingon war are tested to their limits when a Klingon defector arrives aboard the Enterprise in our preview of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds S2:E8

We are just days away from the latest episode of the new season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and this week, the survivors of the Klingon war are tested to their limits. Especially when a defector arrives aboard the Enterprise! 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 2.7 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 will see tensions boil over when the Klingons make their dramatic return.

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:E8. Maximum warp!
