captain's log

We’re back! Slightly later than planned, slightly scrambled from the upheavals of the coronavirus pandemic, but no less committed to bringing you as much lovely Star Trek stuff as we can – something we all surely need in these trying times. As you’ll no doubt have discerned by now, Covid-19 has impacted not just Star Trek Magazine but the production of Star Trek in general, with the net result that Star Trek: Lower Decks is debuting somewhat earlier than expected – ahead of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3, in fact, thus throwing our carefully laid plans into mild disarray. You can read all about the changes in Trek TV scheduling in Ten Forward on page 7, and get the lowdown on Lower Decks from the creative mind behind the animated show,…

strange days

Anson Mount, Ethan Peck, and Rebecca Romijn are set to return as Pike, Spock, and Number One, in a new show spinning out of Star Trek: Discovery Season 2. Taking its name from the original series’ famed title credits introductory speech, Strange New Worlds will follow Kirk, Spock, Number One, and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise in the decade before Kirk boarded the ship. Widely expected following the success of Discovery’s second season, the news was broken by the three lead actors in a video, each expressing their excitement at the project. “I can’t wait to put on that gold Starfleet uniform and deliver Number One right along Captain Pike and Spock,” enthused Rebecca Romijn in the video, while Anson Mount noted that he had “never received more love from a…

all hands on decks

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause disruption to TV and movie productions, the makers of Star Trek have responded by bringing new animated show Star Trek: Lower Decks forward in the schedule, ahead of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3. Created and showrun by Rick and Morty writer/producer Mike McMahan, Lower Decks begins streaming on CBS All Access on August 6. Featuring the voices of Tawny Newsome (Space Force), Jack Quaid (The Boys), Noël Wells (Master of None), and Eugene Cordero (Tacoma FD), the show is set in 2380, just after the events of the final Star Trek: The Next Generation film Star Trek Nemesis. Speaking exclusively to Star Trek Magazine for this issue – see page 24 – McMahan noted, “It’s the last The Next Generation show, before the events that…

way of the warrior

It’s been said – by Tolian Soran, quoting the poet Delmore Schwartz – that “Time is the fire in which we burn.” Well, for Kenneth Mitchell, time is a fire from which to learn, earn, yearn, and, as he puts it, turn lemons into lemonade. Mitchell, who has portrayed the Klingons Kol, Kol-Sha, and Tenavik on Star Trek: Discovery, revealed in February 2020 that he was diagnosed in August 2018 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Mitchell, however, hasn’t let his illness – or, more recently, the coronavirus pandemic – stop him from leading his life and pursuing his acting career with the tenacity of a Klingon warrior. Post-diagnosis and even as ALS eventually forced him to use a wheelchair, Mitchell played Tenavik in…

trek through troubles

The stars of Star Trek have been doing their bit during the coronavirus pandemic, raising both spirits and funds for good causes, and in the process helping fans and themselves through a difficult time. Sir Patrick Stewart – who returned to portray Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Picard at the start of the year – spent much of March, April, and May reading a Shakespeare sonnet a day, posting a daily video to his Twitter and Facebook feeds. Initially intended as a one-off, Stewart instead turned it into a continuing project, writing, “I was delighted by the response to yesterday’s posting of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116, and it has led me to undertake what follows. When I was a child in the 1940s, my mother would cut up slices of fruit for…
