  • Strange New World was a TV pilot based on concepts envisioned by Gene Roddenberry which first aired on March 23, 1975. It starred John Saxon as Captain Anthony Vico, Kathleen Miller as Dr. Allison Crowley, and Keene Curtis as Dr. William Scott, M.D.. Strange New World was the third attempt to bring Roddenberry's post-apocalyptic future vision to the small screen. Prior efforts, called Genesis II and Planet Earth, explored an Earth after a nuclear war and focused on an organization called PAX that was working to bring peace and order to the world. Although he was closely involved in the previous two incarnations, this time Gene Roddenberry opted out. As a result the character names, as well as some of the main plot points, were changed in order to avoid any potential litigation. John Saxon had starred in Planet Earth as Dylan Hunt, but the character's name was changed for its successor. The movie did, however, share the post-apocalyptic premise of Genesis II and Planet Earth. The title of the film was borrowed from the famous opening monologue of Roddenberry's Star Trek. Strange New World is considered by many observers to have been the weakest of the three productions which envisaged the world of PAX. It, like the previous attempts, was not developed into a weekly series. Wikipedia
