STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS gave fans one of the best all-time episodes ever. It was funny, poignant, dramatic, and a musical in space.   

The Enterprise accidentally tethered itself to a quantum improbability field, turning the entire crew into a musical reality. Emotions were rampant, and then look out…everyone would sing their feelings in huge production numbers. I could not stop laughing. The surprised looks on their faces were priceless. Oh, Spock didn’t even hold back. (Most astounding, and apologies!) and it just so occurred when Captain Kirk was on board as well. Unbelievably creative. Kudos to the writers and composers. Genius and a great way to continually move the storyline forward.   

My favorite had to be the finale production number. It was Broadway in space, including a Klingon surprise. I loved the fact that the entire crew made themselves so vulnerable and open. “Each of us are connected.” Don’t miss this episode. I wish I could have joined the ensemble filming this one. Joy and honesty were visible on their faces and in their actions. Fans will remember this one forever.   

STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS is available to stream on Paramount+.
