After months of build-up, teasing, previewing, and anticipating, it's hard to believe that we've actually reached the Season 1 finale of Paramount+'s Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn & Ethan Peck-starring Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. But that's exactly where we're at, and even with today being The Fourth of July that doesn't mean the previews are taking a holiday. Not only do we have the preview images and official trailer for S01E10 "A Quality of Mercy" (directed by Chris Fisher and written by Henry Alonso Myers & Akiva Goldsman), but we also have a look at the recent episode of The Ready Room with Wil Wheaton offering a sneak peek:
And in the latest episode of The Ready Room, Bruce Horak (Chief Hemmer) joins Wheaton to discuss Star Trek: Strange New Worlds S01E09 "All Those Who Wander." The pair cover Horak's "stoic" portrayal of Chief Engineer Hemmer, as well as the close-knit dynamic between the Strange New Worlds cast. Plus, take a look behind-the-scenes at the puppet mastery that went into the episode as well as a look at some of the franchise's scariest episodes. But before Wheaton wrapped, he also offered a sneak preview of this week's episode S01E10 "A Quality of Mercy" (beginning around the 25:45 mark):
With Paramount+'s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds wrapping up 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:
