Star Trek Strange: New Worlds season two trailer reaction

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has recently released the official trailer for its upcoming second season and it looks great, giving audiences a lot of surprises in less than two minutes. It’s chock full of amazing moments, and a crossover with the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks.

But before the crossover is revealed, there are bits to unpack. The opening of the trailer shows audiences Captain Christopher Pike and his crew performing a dangerous landing without engines, as the ship burns up on reentry. It’s an exhilarating moment, as the camera angle makes it look like the ship has crashed, but thankfully they’re safe.

“It’s like riding a bike,” the pilot says, as Pike looks like he’s about to throw up, clearly not reassured. It’s a funny moment.

A rather ominous shot in the trailer is one of a heavily damaged ship looms over a planet, about to crash. Who this ship belongs to isn’t clear, but its imminent crash is bound to cause problems for the crew.

The voiceover for the trailer reminds the audience that the crew are explorers, with a new, purply planet flashing across the screen. It’s a great moment, full of wonder for what they hold, and what the crew will find.

There are then some quickfire moments of action, teasing what’s to come. The one of Spock drinking with Klingons from the previous trailer is present, along with others. There is also love in the air for the crew, as Spock and another crew member find love. At one point, Pike’s ship is shot at, but by who isn’t clear.

The big moment of the trailer isn’t the flashy space battles or exciting moments, however, but it is that previously mentioned crossover. Beckett Mariner and Brad Boimler, played by Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid. It’s great to see them make the jump to live-action, and hopefully they will play a big part in the upcoming season, and be more than a cameo appearance.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season two begins streaming on June 15 on Paramount+.
