PostSubject: Star Trek New Series.    Thu Jun 30, 2016 8:57 pm

On November 2, 2015, CBS announced a new Star Trek television series to premiere in January 2017, "on the heels" of the original series' 50th anniversary in 2016.[2][3] It is the first Star Trek television series since Star Trek: Enterprise concluded in 2005,[3] and is "not related" to the 2016 film Star Trek Beyond.[2] Alex Kurtzman, co-writer of the films Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, and Heather Kadin serve as executive producers on the series, the first to be developed specifically for the CBS All Access on demand service.[2]

In January 2016, new CBS president Glenn Geller revealed that he and the CBS network were not involved in the production of the series, saying, "It really is for All Access. While the network will be broadcasting the pilot, I actually can't answer any creative questions about it."[4] The next month, Bryan Fuller, who began his career writing for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, was announced as the new series' showrunner and co-creator as well as one of its executive producers.[5] Nicholas Meyer, writer and director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, also joined the series as a writer and consulting producer.[6] In March, Rod Roddenberry, the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth of Roddenberry Entertainment also joined the series, as executive producers.[7]

In May 2016, at CBS's upfront presentation, a teaser for the series promising "new crews, new villains, new heroes, new worlds" was released featuring an official logo, simply titling the series Star Trek, with "a more specific title to be unveiled at a later date."[8] The next month, Fuller revealed that the first season would consist of 13 episodes, and that Vincenzo Natali had been hired as producing director for the series. He described each episode's runtime as "flexible", with CBS having given the team parameters ("It was sort of, 'No more than this, no less than that'") rather than a set length to aim for like they would for a traditionally broadcast series.

Here's what the new ship looks like....

A lot of people are saying it looks Klingon, which... it kind of does... but it still looks Starfleet too. I think they were trying to make it look half way between the Enterprise NX (from Enterprise) and the original Enterprise (from TOS). I kind of like it.

Here's another kick in the pants. They have decided they will stream the series on Netflix the day after they stream it on CBS All Access.... except only on international Netflix, not on Netflix in the US or Canada. I'm afraid they'll end up canceling it claiming nobody is watching it... which, no duh when you're trying to force fans to pay extra to watch it instead of airing it on tv.

...the only part of the criminal law that doesn't apply to reporters is the death penalty, at least since 2002, when the Supreme Court decided in Atkins v. Virginia that it's "cruel and unusual punishment" to execute the retarded. - Ann Coulter
