Adam B. Vary Senior Entertainment Writer SPOILER ALERT: This story discusses major plot developments for the Season 2 finale of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” currently streaming on Paramount+. The second season of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” took a large number of big swings: Spock (Ethan Peck) becoming human for a time; an alternate universe James T.
Kirk (Paul Wesley) romancing La’an Noonien-Singh (Christina Chong) in 21st century Toronto; the crossover episode with the animated series “Star Trek: Lower Decks”; and the musical episode featuring a Klingon boy band group. The Season 2 finale, “Hegemony,” attempts to top them all. The terrifying reptilian aliens from Season 1, the Gorn, return with a vengeance, decimating a brand new human colony that the Gorn believe falls within their territory.
That would be trying enough for Capt. Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) and the crew of the Enterprise to deal with, but the Gorn also happened to attack the colony while Pike’s girlfriend, Capt. Marie Batel (Melanie Scrofano) and Spock’s ex-girlfriend, Nurse Christine Chapel (Jess Bush), are visiting the planet.
Batel is trapped on the surface with her crew and some of the other colonists; Chapel is stranded on the decimated remains of Batel’s ship, the Cayuga. And the Gorn have erected a device that prevents the Enterprise from beaming anyone off of the surface. Written by executive producer Henry Alonso Myers, “Hegemony” plays like an action-packed thriller — which is partly why Myers and his fellow showrunner Akiva Goldsman decided to end the episode on a surprise cliffhanger.
