Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Discussion (Most likely SPOILERS)
 
Announced yesterday, Strange New Worlds focuses on the U.S.S. Enterprise under Anson Mount's Captain Christopher Pike, featuring Rebecca Romijn as Number One (named amusingly as "Una") and Ethan Peck as Spock.

A warning: right now, rumors are abound and some of them are very big trolls set up to expose some more toxic elements of the Trek fanbase. For example, a month ago someone made up some rumors on 4chan that exposed a group of YouTube channels that were going over only negative viewpoints about Discovery and Picard, exposing them as not having any real sources and repeating negative points. I'll update this post once I find the video again, it's in my history I just have to wade through a bunch of stuff to find it because I didn't watch it on YouTube.

UPDATE: Found it!

To me Strange New Worlds will always be the "authorized fanfic" collections.

Indeed. I remember those books! Seems like a fitting title to the collected adventures of Pike and Co aboard the Discoprise.

Geez, I just realized that there will be four concurrent Trek series going on at one time if we count Lower Decks. Really hope the franchise doesn't get fatigue...

Supposedly Paramount will release each series spaced out over time, so they aren't all actually being dropped simultaneously.

They're all different enough, and I'm sure each have enough creatives focusing on just one series, that fatigue shouldn't be an issue.
