Star Trek/Wars Teasers

New Star Trek and Star Wars television series are coming soon and the first real teasers for them have hit the interwebs. Both shows hit their respective streaming services in May.

First up is Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which fans of Star Trek: Discovery have already seen glimpses of with a reintroduction of a few characters fans knew were traipsing around the galaxy at the same time. Of course, Star Trek fans were introduced to Captain Pike, Number One, Spock, and others in the original pilot, and a version of Captain Pike made an appearance in the Kelvin-Timeline Star Trek movies. However, this version is the retro-updated version of the USS Enterprise back before Kirk and company took command.

There are a lot of Star Trek shows, but this is the only one that reminds me of the fun and hope of the original series. It looks beautiful and the cast is top-notch. I’m hoping we see a Captain April.

I always thought there was a story to be told right after Obi-Wan Kenobi drops off Luke at the Lard Homestead and walks into the Tatooine desert. Now, we are going to get one.

Obi-Wan Kenobi dropped its first teaser trailer for the Disney+ show and we finally get a glimpse of what’s in store.

Man, when the Duel of Fates” hits I actually got a tingle in my spine. Actually, when the music transitions from Battle of the Heroes” to Duel of the Fates” then back to the first was amazing. Also, the lightsaber swiping to form the Disney+ logo at the end was a good bit of design.

May looks like a good month for Star Trek and Star Wars fans (like me).
