The Gorn return in a preview of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ second season finale.
Now that Star Trek: Strange New Worlds‘ musical episode is in the rearview (and its soundtrack available to stream), it’s time to turn Star Trek fans’ attentions towards the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2 finale episode, “Hegemony,” a title hinting at the return of the Gorn. The Gorn’s return is confirmed in the first clip from the episode that debuted on the most recent installment of Star Trek’s aftershow, The Ready Room, hosted by Wil Wheaton. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds‘ Season 2 premiere episode included a shot hinting at the Gorn heading into Federation space, and it seems that’s the conflict in the finale.
The clip from the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2 finale episode sees the USS Enterprise crew discover the wreckage of the USS Cayuga, the ship commanded by Captain Batel, who is involved in a relationship with Captain Pike. The Enterprise‘s search for survivors is hampered by Gorn interference, and a Gorn hunter ship soon appears. The Enterprise then receives a message from Starfleet informing them that the Gorn have claimed the space around the planet and ordering the Enterprise crew to remain on their side of the Gorn’s demarcation line. Based on how the clip end, Pike seems unlikely to give up on finding Batel and her crew that easily. You can watch the clip below.
