It's nice to have you back for our weekly preview of Paramount+'s Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn & Ethan Peck-starring Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, with this week's episode blending a look into Pike's (Mount) past with a conspiracy theory involving a holy child and a serious planetary threat. How serious? Serious enough to not only find Pike working with a lost love but also forcing him to confront his past. Written by Robin Wasserman & Bill Wolkoff, and directed by Andi Armaganian, here's a look at the official preview images, episode overview, and sneak preview for S01E06 "Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach"
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 1 Episode 6 "Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach": A threat to an idyllic planet reunites Captain Pike with the lost love of his life. To protect her and a scientific holy child from a conspiracy, Pike offers his help and is forced to face unresolved feelings of his past. Written by Robin Wasserman & Bill Wolkoff, and directed by Andi Armaganian.
And in the latest episode of The Ready Room with host Wil Wheaton, actors Gia Sandhu (T'Pring) and Peck (Spock) discuss the wonderfully hilarious events of last week's episode. Plus, actor Bruce Horak (Hemmer) & EPs/Co-Showrunners Akiva Goldsman & Henry Alonso Myers dispense all the Aenar knowledge you could want. But before Wheaton wrapped, he also offered a sneak preview of this week's episode "Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach" (beginning around the 31:10 mark):
