Hope they make Colt human again though... XD
This is suppose to excite me but I am feeling conflicted. Pike and Spock were some of the draws of season 2 discovery, however neither discovery and picard have been impressive with the story telling. i see strange new worlds easily falling into the same trap of generic star trek like discovery and picard.
They'll have Idris Elba in for an episode as Krall and explain how Colt was forced to use his life extension tech on a spiky alien or something.
So, a Pike/Number One/Spock show was finally greenlighted 55 years after the initial pilot was turned down. Surely this must be some sort of world record or something.
If they get Mr. Elba for a story arc, I'll be further pleasantly shocked!
This is great. I loved Pike and the Enterprise stuff in DSC season 2, so I'm really excited that we're getting this show. I was hoping we would, but I was far from certain.
It'd have to be phase II.V, or III. Not even because of the fan made Phase II, I don't think they'd want to get confused with the original TV plan.
And then, it's before TOS, so maybe Phase I?
I'm seriously excited about this news. I liked DSC, I loved PIC, I know I'll love this show too.
Mount looking a lot like Santa there
How dare the writers who wrote Pike, Spock, and Number One in Discovery Season 2 (that were so well loved by the fanbase that this spinoff is actually happening) run this show!
This is awesome. I loved Anson Mount's Pike and really enjoyed Ethan Peck's Spock, and I do like what Rebecca Romijn has done with Number One even though we haven't seen as much of her yet. I really hope they hold true to the theme of optimism that they mentioned in the announcement. And I'm so glad they went with Strange New Worlds as the title.
Between Picard, Discovery and SNW we're up, what, 30 weeks of original Trek programming a year? I think that justifies the subscription.
Wow, you're like a one-person embodiment of IDIC in the fanbase! Personally I'm in the camp that simply cannot warm up to DSC's visual aesthetic, and I'd much rather the original Enterprise actually look like the original Enterprise. Likewise, I've disliked both Goldsman's and Kurtzman's writing since long before either one was ever involved with Star Trek! IOW, the things that attract you are precisely the things that make me skeptical!
Still and all, I'll be approaching this show with cautious optimism. I've thoroughly enjoyed Mount's portrayal of Pike so far, and the concept of the show is just irresistible.
How could they not, it was just a matter of time and money really.
Not surprised at all.
I like the new interpretation of the USS Enterprise 1701 we saw in Discovery.
Money to be made from selling models, including the new D7, perhaps we will see a recognisable BoP as well.
I hope they replace that laughably bad Engineering set.
"I love Strange New World."
So are we supposed to start screaming for a sub forum now or later?
Asking for a friend.
just start transitioning from the Discoprise to the proper Enterprise and I’ll be happy.
They could do that pretty easily whenever they want due to upgrades or battle damage.
I am OK if it stays as it is though.
I can't believe it! How are the showrunners who are currently running this show actually run this show too!????
Don't they listen to the fans!
I'm very happy that the Pike series is official now. This is all I wanted for them to do. So happy for Anson Mount as well.
