Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is the upcoming series led by Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike – the character who debuted in Star Trek’s original 1965 pilot The Cage. After Mount appeared in Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery, fans were incredibly excited at the prospect of a “Captain Pike show,” and a little over a year later the series was announced!
Joining Anson Mount are Ethan Peck as Spock and Rebecca Romijn as Una/Number One – both of whom reprise their roles from Discovery. Three more classic characters are returning: Cadet Nyota Uhura, Nurse Christine Chapel, and Dr M’Benga. The series will also feature the franchise’s first Aenar or Andorian main character.
