We get solely a quick pattern of a single track that the Enterprise crew might be singing, however a number of totally different numbers will be gleaned from the trailer. It appears to be like like they’re going to be group performances on the Enterprise Bridge and bar. The previous is led by Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and the latter by Nurse Chapel (Jess Bush), who desk dances and crowd surfs.
Paul Wesley may also once more visitor star as future-Captain James T. Kirk; he is proven sluggish dancing with Una (Rebecca Romijn) because the Purple Shirts carry out round them. La’an (Christina Chong) remains to be in love with Kirk after their time-traveling in “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow,” however solely she remembers this journey. There is a shot of her singing alone in her quarters, maybe a ballad about her emotions for Kirk? Chong has a second profession as a singer, so giving her a solo is smart.
Nonetheless, it appears that evidently “Subspace Rhapsody” is likely to be foremost an Uhura (Celia Rose Gooding) episode. She has all of the narration within the trailer (“Folks rejoice with the track” and “Are you aware the chances of all of us being right here presently?”), and it appears she will get a solo within the Enterprise engine room too. Music is a type of communication, so specializing in Uhura would make sense. It does not damage that Gooding is a Broadway veteran, both.
“Unusual New Worlds” is unafraid to be goofy: see “Charades,” the place Spock (Ethan Peck) briefly grew to become absolutely human. Now, the collection goes additional than ever, becoming a member of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Batman: The Courageous and the Daring,” and different musical episodes in tv historical past.
“Star Trek: Unusual New Worlds” is streaming on Paramount+. “Subspace Rhapsody” premieres on August 3, 2023.
