MAY 5, 2022 – Celebrating the series premiere of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Paramount+ has released a selection of background images tailored to fit your mobile device. Posted to a thread on the Star Trek on Paramount+ Twitter page, each wallpaper features a member of the main cast set in a celestial background on some “strange new world”. Exquisitely detailed, these wallpapers showcase the bold use of pastel colors we’ve come to expect from the artwork for the series. While these are images that have been previously released, they are now optimized for your phone or tablet! Along with the backgrounds, a message was tweeted to Star Trek fans, saying, “Captain, we’re getting something on the screen. It’s a whole complement of #StarTrek #StrangeNewWorlds wallpapers! Save these to your phone or other mobile device and reply with your favorites”.
