Welcome back to our weekly preview of what's ahead with Paramount+'s Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn & Ethan Peck-starring Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. And that means we have a pretty large set of some festive-looking preview images for S01E08 "The Elysian Kingdom" (directed by Amanda Row and written by Akela Cooper & Onitra Johnson) as well as a preview clip. And along with that preview clip, The Ready Room host Wil Wheaton and guest Jess Bush (Nurse Christine Chapel) discuss the ramifications from S01E07 "The Serene Squall." But first, here's that previously-promised photo gallery for the newest "Star Trek" series' next adventure:

And in the latest episode of The Ready Room, Bush joins Wil to discuss Star Trek: Strange New Worlds S01E07 "The Serene Squall." The pair talk about bringing a higher level of character development to the intrepid medic than previously seen—including her badass hypospray-as-a-weapon moment. Then, they dig into the spicy friendship developing between Spock (Peck) and Chapel. But before Wheaton wrapped, he also offered a sneak preview of this week's episode "The Elysian Kingdom" (beginning around the 29:20 mark):

With Paramount+'s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds soon to be eight episodes into its first season's mission, here's a look back at the official trailer followed by a look back at the previously-released teaser trailer:

STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The series will feature fan favorites from season two of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY: Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. The series will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock and Number One in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.
