The new series is set on an updated version of the original, Constitution-class USS Enterprise and charts its adventures under Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), Lt. Commander Spock (Ethan Peck) and Number One (Rebecca Romijn) some ten years before the events of the original Star Trek series. Mount, Peck and Romijn all reprise their roles from the second season of Star Trek: Discovery.
The show has also added several new castmembers: Babs Olusanmokun (Black Mirror, The Night Of, Dune), Christina Chong (Black Mirror), Celia Rose Gooding (Jagged Little Pill), Jess Bush (Skinford: Chapter Two) and Melissa Navia (Billions).
The series is expected to debut in early 2022 on Paramount+ in the USA. No international broadcaster has been announced, but it is mostly likely to air on Amazon Prime in other territories.
