The second episode of the new series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds finally arrives this week and we have details, new photos, and a clip to get you started.
“Children of the Comet”
The Strange New Worlds series premiere is followed up by an episode titled “Children of the Comet.” The episode was written by co-showrunner Henry Alonso Myers and Sarah Tarkoff. It was directed by Maja Vrvilo. The episode debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, May 12.
While on a survey mission, the U.S.S. Enterprise discovers a comet is going to strike an inhabited planet. They try to re-route the comet, only to find that an ancient alien relic buried on the comet’s icy surface is somehow stopping them. As the away team try to unlock the relic’s secrets, Pike and Number One deal with a group of zealots who want to prevent the U.S.S. Enterprise from interfering.
