The fourth episode of the new series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds arrives this week and we have details, new photos, a trailer, and a clip to get you started.
Strange New Worlds episode four is titled “Memento Mori.” The episode was written by Davy Perez and Beau DeMayo. It was directed by Dan Liu. The episode debuts on Paramount+ on Thursday, May 26.
While on a routine supply mission to a colony planet, the U.S.S. Enterprise comes under an attack from an unknown malevolent force. Pike brings all his heart and experience to bear in facing the crisis, but the security officer warns him that the enemy cannot be dealt with by conventional Starfleet means.
The latest episode of The Ready Room includes a clip of a landing party finding an empty colony [at 26:00]. [Also available internationally at startrek.com]
