Episode 4 (“Among the Lotus Eaters”) of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 debuts tomorrow, on Thursday, July 6. And there’s a new clip to hold you over while you wait.
What’s up with Rigel VII
Rigel VII is a pre-warp planet that Pike (originally played by Jeffrey Hunter) visited prior to the original Star Trek pilot “The Cage.” As noted by Una, Pike’s original landing party ran into “complications.” In “The Cage” Pike recalled his guilt over the loss of members of a landing party resulting from an attack from Rigel VII’s Kalar. While being held prisoner in “The Cage,” Pike ended up reliving his time on Rigel VII via an illusion created by the Talosians.
