It’s another day and so it’s another Star Trek: Strange New Worlds character promo, and this time the focus is on the chief medical officer.
Dr. M’Benga is here
One of the familiar characters on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is Dr. M’Benga, who appeared in a couple of episodes of the original Star Trek. For Strange New Worlds M’Benga is back on board the USS Enterprise, now played by Babs Olusanmokun. The latest social video promo re-introduces us to the doctor.

More character promos
This Strange New Worlds promo follows Tuesday’s videos for Cadet Uhura and Security Chief La’an and Wednesday’s videos for Lt. Ortegas and Hemmer. There are still a few characters left, so we expect more videos soon, with another possibly arriving later today. We have done an analysis of the first two promos already, and we will be doing the same for the others soon.
Coming in May
The series debuts on May 5th. Paramount+ has provided the following synopsis:
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.
