Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Set for Major Lower Decks Crossover

Are you already excited for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds? Although we have yet to find out when the Star Trek: Discovery spin-off is going to begin production, we already know that the new show will bring back Captain Christopher Pike, Number One, and Ensign Spock.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has not yet been given an official production start or release date. Meanwhile, Star Trek: Lower Decks has already been renewed for a second season.
