Trying to keep track of what Star Trek is coming right now feels like trying to stop a tribble from procreating. Before even more new series get announced, here’s our guide of when to expect all the new Star Trek shows, the returns of familiar favorites, and what else is in the works right now. Engage!

Star Trek Shows Currently Airing and Coming Soon

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 1

A prequel-sequel series—a prequel to the original Star Trek, a sequel to the second season of Star Trek: DiscoveryStrange New Worlds follows the crew of the original USS Enterprise as they boldly go seeking all of those titular new worlds. Returning Discovery season two guests Anson Mount, Ethan Peck, and Rebecca Romijn portray Captain Pike, Mr. Spock, and Number One respectively, joined by a new cast playing familiar and fresh faces alike:

  • Celia Rose Gooding as Cadet Uhura
  • Christina Chong as Security Chief La’an Noonien-Singh
  • Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel
  • Babs Olusanmokun as Dr. M’Benga
  • Melissa Navia as Lt. Erica Ortegas
  • Bruce Horak as Chief Engineer Hemmer

Catch our interview with the cast here, and learn more about Spock’s trials coming into the series here. Paramount released the opening title sequences for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds on April 29. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds began streaming on Paramount+ May 5, and season one is 10 episodes long. You can read our initial, spoiler-free impressions of the first half of the season here. And if you are looking for episode recaps, read below:

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3

The third season of the delightful animated series following the misfit crew of the USS Cerritos—and in particular its cadre of ensigns, Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Boimler (Jack Quaid), Tendi (Noël Wells), and Rutherford (Eugene Cordero)—doesn’t have a release date yet, beyond a window of summer 2022. Expected to start airing around the time Strange New Worlds starts wrapping up in July, season three sees our heroic ensigns and the remaining bridge officers aboard the Cerritos band together to free Captain Freeman (Dawnn Lewis) from Starfleet Security, after she was wrongly accused of destroying the Pakled homeworld in the climax of season two. Watch a new trailer above. A fourth season has also been ordered.

Upcoming Star Trek Shows and Series In Development

Upcoming: Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1, Part 2

The first half of the first season of the animated series Prodigy—following a crew of alien teens who escape a torturous living on a mining encampment in the Delta Quadrant, thanks to the discovery of the USS Protostar, an experimental Starfleet vessel with an advanced warp drive—wrapped up on Paramount+ earlier this year, but is currently expected to return for the second half of the season later in 2022. Will Admiral Janeway (returning Voyager legend Kate Mulgrew) be able to catch up with the ship formerly captained by her old friend Chakotay (fellow returning Voyager legend, Robert Beltran)? Time, and perhaps a chat with Protostar holographic instructor Janeway (also returning Voyager legend Kate Mulgrew), will tell.

Upcoming: Star Trek: Discovery Season 5

Expected some time in 2023, Discovery’s fifth season will be 10 episodes long, down from the 13 of prior seasons. In the wake of season four‘s climax earlier this year, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) led her crew in a desperate attempt to save the galaxy from a mysterious anomaly created by an extra-galactic race, ensuring peace and stability for the Federation once more… for now. As her romantic partner Book (David Ajala) pays time for his own role in a campaign to surreptitiously destroy that anomaly, we’re not sure what awaits Burnham and Discovery’s crew just yet, but given this show, we’re sure it’ll be very, very dramatic.

Upcoming: Star Trek: Picard Season 3

Star Trek: Picard’s third, and now officially final, season is also expected on Paramount+ some time in 2023, although considering it was shot back-to-back with season two, don’t be too surprised if it gets a surprise start later this year. There’s plenty to be excited about too: the series is going out in style, reuniting Sir Patrick Stewart with The Next Generation’s command crew: Brent Spiner as Data, Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi, Jonathan Frakes as Will Riker, Gates McFadden as Dr. Beverly Crusher, Michael Dorn as Worf, and LeVar Burton as Geordi LaForge.

In Development: Section 31

Although it’s been officially unveiled since 2019, we still don’t have a clue when this spinoff based around the seediest side of Starfleet—the shadowy spy organization Section 31, first introduced in Deep Space Nine—with Discovery guest star Michelle Yeoh is actually meant to air. Yeoh, who will return as former emperor of the Mirror Universe’s Terran Empire, Phillipa Georgiou, now turned into a kinder, but still kickass person by her time with Michael Burnham, is still expected to return, but beyond that, no one knows what to expect. Especially because the way Yeoh exited Discovery’s third season means that Georgiou could basically show up anywhere across Star Trek’s timeline.

In Development: Starfleet Academy

If we’ve been waiting a while for Section 31 to happen, then somehow this is even longer. Back in the heady days of 2018, when Discovery was the only new Star Trek, part of series architect Alex Kurtzman’s deal with CBS to helm a new era of Trek included talk of a series based around Starfleet Academy, the San Francisco-based school that shaped the Federation’s engineers, scientists, doctors, pilots, and commanders into the future explorers and peacekeepers of the galaxy. Originally slated to be showrun by Marvel’s Runaways’ Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, the series went quiet after these initial reports, however earlier this year it was re-confirmed that Star Trek: Starfleet Academy is in the works again.

Now developed by Absentia co-creator Gaia Violo, little is known about the series beyond that, other than that it will obviously follow Starfleet cadets, and is expected to potentially follow the Section 31 series into production sometime in the next year. We also don’t know when it could be set in Star Trek’s timeline, but Discovery’s fourth season did include a major development for Mary Wiseman’s Sylvia Tilly, where she left the ship to take a teaching position at the re-opened Starfleet Academy of the 31st Century—so it could stand to reason the show could follow her, but we don’t know right now.

That’s all the new bits of Star Trek coming. But what about the old Star Trek?

Here’s a full list of classic Star Trek shows and where to stream them, as well as links to our recommended episode guides for every series!

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Opening Titles Still Somehow Rule as an N64 Game

#Star #Trek #Deep #Space #Nine039s #Opening #Titles #Rule #N64 #Game

Star Trek has had an up-and-down history with video games, sometimes managing to succeed in gaming genres it arguably shouldn’t, while never managing to quite succeed in the ones it should. There’s been plenty of great ones, but now a very cool little animation imagines one of its finest entries getting a ‘90s tie-in that never was.

Twitter user SpinaSanctuary’s hypothetical title screen for a mid-’90s Deep Space Nine game on the Nintendo 64 imagines a sideways glance where the platform that gave us Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire instead took a visit to the Gamma Quadrant for some licensed gaming goodness, essentially riffing on the opening moments of Deep Space Nine’s own title sequence, but in a gloriously polygonal retro style.

What could’ve Star Trek 64: Deep Space Nine even been? An adventure game aboard the station? A starship strategy game set during the Dominion War? A retail management sim dedicated to the Promenade á la Roller Coaster Tycoon or Theme Park World? A first person shooter like Voyager got with the Elite Force games, that shouldn’t make sense, but totally does? Whatever it would’ve been, this cute little “demake” has me wishing we could’ve found out.

Exclusive: Amazon Prime subscribers now get GrubHub Plus free for a year – TalkOfNews.com

Amazon Prime subscribers now get GrubHub Plus free for a year

#Amazon #Prime #subscribers #GrubHub #free #year

Amazon Prime subscribers in the US are getting a new benefit as part of their subscription, the company has announced. From today, they’ll be able to redeem a free year of Grubhub Plus, the monthly subscription service that offers free food delivery on orders over $12 from participating restaurants. Grubhub Plus normally costs $9.99 a month.

According to Amazon, free deliveries associated with Grubhub Plus are available from hundreds of thousands of restaurants across over 4,000 cities in the US. After the year is up, Grubhub will automatically start charging $9.99 a month for continued access. Existing Grubhub Plus subscribers can still make use of the promotion, which will be applied from the start of their next billing cycle. Canceling Prime automatically cancels Grubhub Plus.

The deal comes just a few short years after Amazon shut down Amazon Restaurants, its own attempt to compete in the takeout delivery market. The service was live between 2015 and 2019 but faced stiff competition from the likes of Uber Eats and DoorDash.

Since then, the e-commerce giant has mainly focused on grocery deliveries, but has kept a toe in the takeout delivery market through partnerships with other firms. It announced an investment in Europe-focused Deliveroo in 2019, and started offering access to its Deliveroo Plus subscription service as an additional perk for Prime members in the UK last year.

“Amazon has redefined convenience with Prime and we’re confident this offering will expose many new diners to the value of Grubhub Plus while driving more business to our restaurant partners and drivers,” Grubhub CEO Adam DeWitt said in a statement. The company, which is owned by Just Eat Takeaway.com, says it expects Grubhub Plus subscriptions to rise as a result of the deal.

GrubHub Plus isn’t the only additional benefit Amazon is announcing for Prime members today. The e-commerce giant is also making a short teaser trailer for its upcoming Lord of the Rings TV show, Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power available exclusively to Prime subscribers for 48 hours. Members can watch the teaser over on the show’s Amazon page. The trailer ends by promising yet another teaser is coming on July 14th ahead of the release of the series on September 2nd.
