Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), Number One (Rebecca Romijn), and Science Officer Spock (Ethan Peck) are finally about to boldly go where no one has gone before: Production on the newest Star Trek series on Paramount+ has started.

The streaming service has also announced new cast additions to the Starship Enterprise on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds to join Mount, Romijn, and Peck, whose characters fans met in Star Trek: Discovery Season 2: Babs Olusanmokun, Christina Chong, Celia Rose Gooding, Jess Bush, and Melissa Navia will join the crew.

All the series regulars shared their excitement in a new video about production beginning. And how better to do one than by delivering the introduction in the 1960s’ Star Trek series: “Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before.”

“Stepping back onto the Enterprise will always feel like a dream come true,” Romijn says.

Gooding adds, “To sit there and to look around and to see everything, it felt so real and it was so magical.”

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will follow Pike, Spock, and Number One “in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy,” Paramount+ teases.
