Captain James T. Kirk returns to the Star Trek universe: what actor will take William Shatner’s place in Strange New Worlds

Star Trek has reinvented itself, over time, many times, each time differently, to the delight or, conversely, the dissatisfaction of franchise fans.

The newest Trek production, “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” promises to be what others, lately, have failed. Let’s be honest, perhaps the biggest disappointment for fans in recent years has been the much-discussed “Discovery”, the series that mutilated (figuratively, but literally) the Klingon race, if that were still possible.

Later, on the small screens, he made his debut “Star Trek: Picard”, a series that managed, to some extent, to wash away the “shame” of “Discovery”. Obviously, the series in which Captain Jean Luc Picard returns, along with Diana Troi, William Riker, Guinan, Seven of Nine, Q and Data, was not necessarily appreciated for the quality of the back story, but rather in terms of the nostalgia factor. . In other words, of your own free will, you are obliged to like “Star Trek Picard” because otherwise you would be embarrassed by the characters who made history in your childhood.
