The announcement was made in a surprise video featuring the series' cast during the STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS panel that took place at today's global live-streamed Star Trek Day celebration. The STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS panel featured series stars Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck, and co-showrunners and executive producers, Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers in a conversation with host Mica Burton.

The remaining Star Trek Day celebration panels are available to live-stream for free at StarTrek.com/Day and on Paramount+ and Paramount+'s Twitch page in the U.S. The Star Trek Day panel schedule can be found at StarTrek.com/Day. After their initial airing, the panels will be available on-demand on Paramount+'s YouTube Channel and on Paramount+.

The series will feature fan favorites from season two of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY: Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. The series will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock, and Number One in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.

The series premiere was written by Akiva Goldsman with the story by Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet. Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers serve as co-showrunners, with Goldsman directing the premiere episode. Goldsman, Kurtzman, and Lumet serve as executive producers in addition to Alonso Myers, Heather Kadin, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, and Aaron Baiers. Akela Cooper and Davy Perez serve as co-executive producers. The series is produced by CBS Studios, Secret Hideout, and Roddenberry Entertainment.

Maybe this time they'll get it right. I've not been impressed with Star Trek since Voyager to be honest. It was, to me, clearly running out of gas by the end of that series.

 I thought the premise of Enterprise was good, but it quickly ended up a waste. For a series that was supposedly to take place before the original  run, it basically just trampled the idea. The Abrams "reboot" was a mockery and mash up of poor writing and dazzling effects. But nothing would be as horrible as Discovery.  Every continuity flaw Enterprise may have had was doubled, tripled down on Discovery, till it just couldn't be seen as any part of Trek. Its an insult to the intelligence of anyone to try to say that this is in the same continuity as the original Trek.

And Picard, which I'm sure everyone thought would be the saving grace, was an embarrassing disaster.

I don't have a lot of faith that this new show will be much better, but who knows. Maybe they'll get it right this time....

A live action M'Ress, even in a brief appearance, might at least get me to tune in, but yeah, there's little chance this will be any better than any other Kurtzman helmed (or written) Star Trek.
