What Number One’s Trial Means For Strange New Worlds Season 2
Commander Una Chin-Riley was detained at the end of Strange New Worlds season 1 after Starfleet discovered she is Illyrian. Illyrians practice genetic modification, which is prohibited by the United Federation of Planets. Una rested on her Starfleet application about her types, and she was collared by Captain Batel (Melanie Scrofano), who is the district attorney at Number One’s court-martial in the Strange New Worlds season 2 clip. Surely making complex matters even more is that Batel remains in a relationship with Una’s commander, Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), who is seen viewing the trial with the team of the USS Enterprise.
In the new Strange New Worlds season 2 clip, Una’s buddies, Lt. La’an Noonien-Singh (Christina Chong), Dr. Joseph M’Benga (Babs Olusanmokun), and Lt. Spock (Ethan Peck), affirm in assistance of Number One’s character, although the video ends in a cliffhanger of Spock potentially ready to expose something damning about Una. Of course, Strange New Worlds season 2’s trailer currently makes it clear that Number One go back to the Enterprise, however how Una beats this rap, and what it will indicate for the total problem of genetically crafted Augments being prohibited by the Federation, are concerns still to be responded to in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 premieres Thursday, June 15, on Paramount+.
