The Nose looks at the James Webb Space Telescope images, ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,’ and more
This week’s Nose shows no hails from the surface or sub-space chatter. No interplanetary traffic. Not one orbital dock.
Sort of relatedly: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is the 11th Star Trek television series and the fifth series in Alex Kurtzman’s expanded Star Trek universe. It tells the story of Christopher Pike’s time as captain of the USS Enterprise in the years before Captain Kirk. Its first season concluded last week on Paramount+. A second season is currently in production.
