New Star Trek series!

Original continuity, which is fine.  I mean, I’m one of those horrible people who enjoy what Abrams is doing with the movies, but it’s best if those stay one-offs. After all, the Star Trek timeline is complicated enough as it is

According to Birth.Movies.Death, the new as-yet-untitled Star Trek series will first return to the timeline previously rebooted by J.J. Abrams’ film series, but still take place after the original Enterprise crew have made their mark on the galaxy. Set sometime between Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country and The Next Generation TV series (thereby making original cast cameos unlikely), the new series will be “heavily serialized” with a new, non-Enterprise ship.

Via @smorton101368.  The show will be out in 2017, on CBS ‘All-Access streaming,’ whatever that means.  Although I suppose that I could hazard a guess.

    They can’t make something that’s exactly Axanar, since that got Copyright Trolled. So, they move it up another generation?

    At least they realize there’s still a market for the original universe.

    Well, they say that the first step is always admitting you have a problem. We’ll just have to work on steps 2 through 12 right now. :p

      Although calling them “StarTrek” is more a quirk of legal franchising than continuity of spirit*, they *are* entertaining. ST needed to be ripped away form its utopian wish-casting.

      *OTOH, my fav is DS9, which tore apart the utopia before JJ got near it, and far more believably.

        DS9 is my favorite as well for that reason, plus it actually handled issues of faith fairly well thanks to Kira (though not without some bumps).

          Yeah DS9 was good. Reminded of me of a western set in space.

            That, and…..that other show cancelled way before it’s time.

            Space westerns really are under-appreciated.

        • Dave R says:

          still, all episodes that mentioned the pah-wraiths or Kira’s love life should be cast into the fire

  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    I’m interested, but I’m not going to subscribe to a CBS-only streaming service to see it. When it comes to Amazon, or even Netflix, then I will watch.

    Personally, I’ve sworn off all new “official” ST for the foreseeable future over the Axanar lawsuit.
