Not to be left out, Strange New Worlds was represented during the Star Trek Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Not only did fans in attendance get to see the much anticipated seventh episode of the second season that features a Lower Decks/Strange New Worlds crossover, Paramount then surprised the audience by announcing that the episode will be released today for everyone to see. They also teased the rumored musical episode by revealing a trailer and details on the original soundtrack.
Lower Decks crossover available today
The Lower Decks/Strange New Worlds crossover episode (titled “Those Old Scientists”) originally scheduled to be released next Thursday will be available to stream today, starting at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Paramount+ in the U.S. and all Paramount+ international markets. Keep an eye out for a TrekMovie recap and review arriving at the same time as the episode is being released. Tony and Laurie will also be discussing the episode in a special episode of the All Access Star Trek podcast arriving Sunday morning.
Sneak peek of musical episode
Also shown at Comic-Con is a trailer and poster for the very special ninth episode of the season, the (often rumored) musical episode, aptly titled “Subspace Rhapsody.” This must certainly be one of those “big swings” of the season, that the cast and crew have teased in past interviews.
