Star Trek TV Series in the Works at CBS with Producer Alex Kurtzman.
CBS is developing a new Star Trek TV series for 2017!

CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new Star Trek TV series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

The next chapter of the “Star Trek” franchise will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.

The new program will be the first original series developed specifically for U.S. audiences for CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service that brings viewers thousands of episodes from CBS’s current and past seasons on demand, plus the ability to stream their local CBS Television station live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous “Star Trek” television series.

The brand-new Star Trek TV series will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new Star Trek TV series. Kurtzman co-wrote and produced the blockbuster films Star Trek (2009) with Roberto Orci, and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) with Orci and Damon Lindelof. Both films were produced and directed by J.J. Abrams.

The new Star Trek TV series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers. Kurtzman is also an executive producer for the hit CBS television series “Scorpion” and “Limitless,” along with Kadin and Orci, and for “Hawaii Five-O” with Orci.

$6 to watch on a CBS/netlfix interface. I think theyre overestimating their audience.
Hopefully its good enough to check out the pilot.

    Who said it had to be Borg? >_>

    Could just make a new crazier race from another galaxy... or hell, just push the series waaay further in the future than the previous shows (considering that especially right now, Star Trek Online is doing the majority of the storytelling of after what happened in the 'Prime' universe).

    borg, federation schism, romulan fallout.. doesnt matter. I just want more space battles like the dominion war and less "planet" of the week.

    when anyone says voyager all i can do is groan and think how the borg went from a cool idea to the most played out plot device that was involved in 80% of voyagers major plots.

    i personally want something closer to a warlike feel like ds9 got to....but i know and understand they need to go back to the essence of star trek and do more adventures and scientific exploring shenanigans.

    Didnt think Enterprise sucked that bad, it was the weakest entry for sure but meh, I think the deal with Star Trek is that its pretty campy without you knowing its camp. Like TNG was 100% cheese but was pretty bad ass at the same time.

    Would defo like to see a new show chronologically like a century down the line with a new cast and a new alien menace to fight, but damn Ill be happy for anything I can get.

    DS9 still the GOAT.

    But if it can get to TNG level at least, we'll have something cool.

    Yeah, unfortunately it sounds like just a new show, with a new story and cast. I'd really have liked to see a series taking place after the Dominion War, as well.

    They really need to look at the Star Trek Renegades universe and expand that. Of Gods and Men was well done, with the limited budget and Renegades was very interesting, with all the old and new stars and showing a less "campy" federation.

    Hmm I'm confused, I guess they made another change during production and gave everyone a double dose of diversity for this show

    Trailer was very Abrams

    Klingons look shitty

    Prequel is still a stupid idea

    Part of the appeal of Star Trek was for me that the shows were always going forward (even though the quality kind of dropped).
    All this 10 years ago shit doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

    Also the Klingons look like ass.

    [The following is satire]

    Klingons always look like they are making fun of some sort of race

    TOS Klingons, made fun of Asians

    White folks in body paint

    Movie Era Klingons, still made fun of Asians. FYI this character is named General Chang

    http://www.cracked.com/article_22894_5-secret-racist-messages-buried-in-your-favorite-pop-culture.html

    Or we are all looking into everything too closely.
    Most of these comparisons are a stretch, even for shit Sarkeesian SJW standards. It made my head hurt to type up this satire.


    Star Trek was the first show that had a Black Commissioned officer on TV. And she was a regular character on the show, not a one off and not a villain.
    It is a Show that allow had A Good Guy Russian Character during the cold war, and an Asian "driver", a Alien First Officer, and a Scottsmen as a Engineer.

    I'm not going to lie. I'm not feeling what I've seen thus far of Discovery. I mean having a show the abbreviation STD seems odd. That said after taking a bit of time to think about things. I don't understand the "in your face diversity" complaints. Did people not watch a Star Trek before? Star Trek has a made point of having a diverse cast for 50 years.
