Paramount keeps rebooting Star Trek, and I keep coming back, hoping whatever theyre attempting now will strike like The Next Generation did back in the 90s (I am older). Odd New Worlds is the latest effort, and Ill be damed if the trailer doesnt make it appear like theyve lastly gotten it.
Star Trek is a franchise– and I state this as a longtime adherent– that has always had a hard time when going for an audience larger than the geeks who already like Star Trek. The JJ Abrams reboot movies are fun and fancy unique effects romps, however they play more like action-packed Marvel movies than the sort of ideas-first stories that sustained the different timeless series finest episodes. For me, Discovery and Picard appeared to be expending excessive energy chasing Prestige TV buzz and constructing out Game of Thrones-level tradition. I like a lot about both of them, but they arent what I am searching for from an episode of Star Trek.
When does Star Trek: Strange New Worlds best on Paramount+?
Unusual New Worlds looks like it might finally get the balance right when it premieres on May 5. It looks missions-focused, brightly colored, and enjoyable (rather of severe and brooding), and Rebecca Romjin gets to be the first officer, satisfying a pledge made in the unaired pilot of the Star Trek: TOS all those years ago.
Arriving May 20
Also showing up on the banner this month: The very first season of Joe Pickett, which is apparently the highest-rated “Spectrum Originals” series ever, whatever Spectrum Originals is. The adjustment of the successful C.J. Box books has actually been restored for a second season, so now is your opportunity to catch up (while you find out what a Spectrum Original is so you can enjoy season two live).
Heres whatever else coming in May– including a pretty strong list of old movies (watch Paper Moon!).

Star Trek is a franchise– and I state this as a longtime adherent– that has actually constantly had a hard time when aiming for an audience bigger than the geeks who currently like Star Trek. The JJ Abrams reboot films are fun and flashy unique impacts rollicks, however they play more like action-packed Marvel motion pictures than the kinds of ideas-first stories that sustained the different traditional series finest episodes. I like a lot about both of them, but they arent what I am looking for from an episode of Star Trek.
