Fern Siegel

There is no end to “Star Trek” sagas, only new frontiers to explore. In the new Paramount+ show “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) leads the U.S.S. Enterprise in the years before Captain Kirk. In this new series, the “Star Trek” franchise returns to the traditional planet-of-the-week space-exploration format of the original run. “Strange New Worlds” also stars Rebecca Romijn as Number One, Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock, and Tony-nominated Celia Rose Gooding as Nyota Uhura. The new series debuts on May 5.
