Both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard tell a coherent story in the seasons. This differentiates the two series from the way Star Trek used to be structured – for example with the original series or The Next Generation. That will change with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. With the series we get to see separate stories, a kind of “adventure of the week”. Although the characters evolve over the course of the series, there is no coherent and season-spanning story.

An episodic approach to the new Star Trek series

Actor Anson Mount, who plays Captain Christopher Pike in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, explains the approach and why the producers wanted an episodic series again: “Well, I think Star Trek is inherently episodic. That doesn’t mean That Star Trek can’t be other things. Star Trek can be a lot of things, as we’ve seen in every iteration of it. But classic Trek is really based on the big idea of ​​the week, and the big idea of ​​the week needs space to Breathe. In a serial structure you try to take care of so many relationships that there isn’t much room for them. That being said, I think Discovery is doing a phenomenal job with that structure and I’ve been very fortunate to be a part of it Usually serial, ongoing formats are my taste as an actor, but this really felt like it had to be episodic. “

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is intended to be different from Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard and to give the viewer the feeling of watching Star Trek as it used to be.
