Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Series 2 promises laughs, tears, and unprecedented animated-live action crossover (new trailer).
In a bid to boldly go where no series has gone before, the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Series 2 trailer has launched, causing a warp-speed surge of reactions across the internet. The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, under the firm hand of Captain Christopher Pike, is set to explore more uncharted territories, encounter new life forms, and grapple with the perils of the universe, all while embarking on personal journeys that redefine their destinies.
Notably, the show is creating a tractor beam of hype due to the long-anticipated crossover with the animated series, Star Trek: Lower Decks. This marks the first time in Star Trek history that main animated characters have jumped to live-action, making it a fascinating and momentous occasion for Trekkies worldwide.
Fan comments suggest the crossover is already worth a Paramount+ subscription. Animated characters Boimler and Mariner, known for their hijinks on Lower Decks, have a significant following, with one viewer stating, “I don’t think I’ve ever cried so hard laughing at Boimler at the end there. Just perfect.” It’s clear the crossover is expected to deliver not just drama, but a healthy dose of humor to this iconic series.
The reactions also commend the meticulous transition of animated characters into live-action, with a user saying, “They also nailed Boimler’s look. He looks like the animated version of himself but real.” Audiences are particularly excited to see Mariner and Boimler in action and laud Paramount’s decision to retain the original voice actors, reinforcing that any other method wouldn’t have worked.
But the excitement doesn’t stop at the crossover. Trekkies are equally enthusiastic about the explorations of those titular ‘strange new worlds’. The stunning visuals and VFX have left many viewers astounded, some proclaiming Star Trek has never looked this good before, and even planning to capture stills of the Enterprise as future desktop wallpapers.
