Get ready, Trekkies! Your favorite Star Trek universes are colliding in an unexpected way! The second season of ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ is preparing to stun with a time-defying crossover episode featuring the animated crew from ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks.’
A new promo on Crave, the Canadian streaming platform for all Star Trek shows, gives us a fleeting peek into this thrilling convergence. Our beloved characters, Beckett Mariner and Brad Boimler, beam onto the USS Enterprise transporter pad, joining Captain Pike and Lt. La’an Noonien-Singh.
The glimpse is brief, but the live-action incarnations of Mariner and Boimler, played by Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid respectively, are shown donning their Lower Decks uniforms. Star Trek veteran Jonathan Frakes, who helmed this crossover episode, hints at a “flat-out comic” experience awaiting us.
Crave revealed a second promo featuring the Enterprise soaring over an alien world, plus an explosive scene with La’an and James T. Kirk. Could this suggest a time-traveling journey to the 21st century? All signs point to some thrilling temporal hijinks in the upcoming season.
Adding to the excitement, the one-month countdown to the second season of ‘Strange New Worlds’ was marked by Paramount+ with a special promo featuring Carol Kane, who joins the crew as the new engineer Pelia. Fans are eagerly anticipating her addition to the Star Trek family.
The second season of ‘Strange New Worlds’ is set to premiere on June 15 on Paramount+ in various regions including the U.S., U.K., Australia, Latin America, and parts of Europe and Asia.
Despite some setbacks (such as the promotional videos being removed from YouTube), the anticipation for this interstellar collision between Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks is reaching warp speed. As the season premiere approaches, the Star Trek community is abuzz with speculation and anticipation.
Will this innovative crossover become a fan-favorite? Could time travel become a recurrent theme in this season of ‘Strange New Worlds’? Only time will tell. So set your phasers to stun and prepare for a thrilling journey to the stars!
