“Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.”

Wish all of us could have this level of confidence as Data had. Oh no, not the information related data. Data? Android? Second Officer? Star Trek? Spaceship? USS Enterprise? Rang some bells?

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Teaser

The teaser gives stunning visuals and backdrops and opens to a snowy landscape with Christopher ‘Chris’ Pike riding a black horse. A super futuristic looking aircraft comes down swooping from the sky as well. And then the shots change from what looked like Earth to places which aren’t really ‘Earth-looking’ with massive and multiple moons in their skies. The voice over in the teaser talks about the first ‘visit’ or what can actually be the first inter-planetary or maybe inter-galactic travel gives the hint that this series might be set far behind the timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series.
