The Star Trek Universe is about to get a musical makeover with the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Revealed during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the Star Trek Universe panel confirmed that one episode of the highly anticipated second season of Strange New Worlds will be a musical extravaganza. The episode, titled ‘Subspace Rhapsody’, is a playful nod to Queen’s iconic track “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
While the announcement of a musical episode may come as a surprise to some, the series has previously featured musical moments. In one memorable scene, Uhura, played by Celia Rose Gooding, had to sing to a piece of alien technology to activate it. This teaser video from the panel hints at Gooding’s impressive vocal talents, adding to the excitement surrounding the upcoming musical episode.
The original songs for ‘Subspace Rhapsody’ will be composed by Kay Hanley and Tom Polce, both members of the rock band Letters to Cleo. Their musical prowess promises to elevate the episode to new heights, ensuring that fans of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds are in for a treat.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2 is set to premiere on 3 August 2022, exclusively on Paramount+. The musical episode, ‘Subspace Rhapsody’, will be the ninth episode of the season. Fans can look forward to an immersive and unique experience as the crew of the USS Enterprise embarks on this musical adventure.
Fans can anticipate a captivating blend of music, storytelling, and the exploration of new frontiers that Star Trek is renowned for.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds features a stellar cast of talented actors and actresses. The series regulars are Rebecca Romijn, who portrays Number One, Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel, Ethan Peck as Spock, and Anson Mount, known for his role as Black Bolt in Marvel’s Inhumans, as Captain Christopher Pike.
Anson Mount has recently been asked about a potential return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but unfortunately, fans hoping to see him reprise his role as Black Bolt may be disappointed. Mount revealed that while there have been informal conversations with Marvel, there are no immediate plans for his return. He explained that Marvel has its current phase to focus on and that any future collaborations will be part of ongoing discussions.
