My preferred expansion to the second period of Star Trek: Discovery was Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, the man who instructed the U.S.S. Venture preceding the appearance James T. Kirk, and I unquestionably wasn’t the only one; armies of fans made their voices heard in mentioning that CBS build up an arrangement revolved around Captain Pike, Spock (Ethan Peck), and Number One (Rebecca Romjin), and a week ago, that desire was allowed
CBS declared Star Trek: Strange New Worlds on Friday, another arrangement which would follow the experiences of Pike locally available the Enterprise, and during a meeting with Variety, Strange New Worlds co-maker Akiva Goldsman said that the side project will share substantially more practically speaking with exemplary Trek appears in contrast with Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard. “We’re going to attempt to harken back to some traditional ‘Trek’ values, to be idealistic, and to be increasingly long winded,” Goldsman said. “Clearly, we will exploit the serialized idea of character and story building. Yet, I figure our plots will be more shut finished than you’ve seen in either ‘Revelation’ or ‘Picard.'” While I’m certainly not restricted to serialized narrating in the Trek establishment, I’ve unquestionably been wanting to see a couple of more independent scenes, so this news is exceptionally welcome.
I envision it to be nearer to the first arrangement than even Deep Space Nine. We can truly recount to shut finished stories. We can end up in scenes that are tonally of a piece.
Akiva Goldsman included that, “It’s difficult to do a shore-leave scene in a since quite a while ago, serialized curve,” however saying this doesn’t imply that that characters and occasions will reset toward the finish of each scene. Goldsman raised the great Original Series scene “The City on the Edge of Forever” for instance. “I think one thing that we generally battled with [as fans] was that Kirk is grief stricken at the loss of Edith Keeler in ‘The City on the Edge of Forever’ and must be okay the following week,” Goldsman said. “I figure what we would need to do is keep the characters having traveled through and perceiving the encounters they’ve had in past scenes, however to have the option to tell contained, roundabout stories.”
Given that COVID-19 has to a great extent shut-down Hollywood, there’s no sign on when creation may start on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, however I’m absolutely energized by the capability of the arrangement.
