How Star Trek: Discovery Compares To Picard & Strange New Worlds

Discovery is big but not the biggest Star Trek on Paramount+ show

Star Trek: Discovery‘s rankings in the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 verify the show’s huge popularity. Although, Discovery doesn’t quite match the numbers of Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. On X, Alex Perry (@alexandertperry) of TrekCore shared a breakdown of every Star Trek on Paramount+ show’s performance in the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 since Nielsen released the numbers:

Star Trek: Discovery season 5’s highest-performing episode was “Mirrors”, possibly because it saw the return of the Mirror Universe’s ISS Enterprise. Discovery‘s series finale doesn’t match Star Trek: Strange New Worlds‘ season 2 finale, “Hegemony”, with 304 million minutes. Star Trek: Picard’s series finale, “The Last Generation”, still leads the pack with 400 million minutes streamed. Still, Star Trek: Discovery had 4 episodes rank in the Top 10 compared to Picard‘s 3, while Strange New Worlds season 2 rules the roost with 8 episodes. The finale ranking in the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 is one last high for Star Trek: Discovery to bow out to.
