Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It’s five-year mission: To explore Strange New Worlds. To remind us of our love the Original Series. To have a fun adventure every week. To look like nothing else on television. To boldly attempt — for a world exhausted by impending catastrophes — to be the most authentic expression of Star Trek since the 1960s.
This week on Strange New Worlds our ongoing mission continues — what if Star Trek but relaxed and visually spectacular? In the meantime, Chris teaches some pirates a thing or two about cooking, Christine teaches Spock a thing or two about relationships, and Jesse James Keitel teaches the whole cast a thing or two about being chill, sexy and fabulously evil.
A long time ago in a land far, far away, a beneficent king called Alex ruled over the kingdom of Trek, deciding which provinces would prosper and what each province would be known for. And so it came to pass that in the Province of Strange New Worlds, fun and entertainment would hold sway, and that from time to time even a heartwarming ending would be welcomed. And they all lived happily ever after, even the ones who had died.
