New York (The Verge) — New Star Trek series based on the USS Enterprise is heading to CBS All Access trib.al/T92VWtL.
CBS All Access has another Star Trek series in development called Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The series will follow Captain Christopher Pike, Number One, and Spock on the USS Enterprise a decade before the original series.
“Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” will follow the three characters “in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy,” according to an official announcement from the network. Actors Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck, who were introduced into CBS’s Star Trek universe as the revived Pike, Number One, and Spock, respectively, in Star Trek: Discovery’s second season, will reprise their roles. Star Trek: Discovery and “Star Trek: Picard” writers and producers Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet are developing the new project.
Strange New Worlds is the latest Star Trek project for CBS All Access, which is quickly building a miniature streaming Star Trek empire. Kurtzman, who signed a five-year deal with CBS, is largely seen as the architect behind this growing universe. Other shows in the works include “Star Trek: Lower Decks” (All Access’ first animated Star Trek series) as well as “the development of a Section 31-based series with Michelle Yeoh,” who played Philippa Georgiou in “Star Trek: Discovery.” — Julia Alexander/@verge
