PostSubject: CBS expanding Star Trek, discussing 5 new shows   Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:14 am

The idea of more Star Trek sounds very good. Being on tv instead of pay per view sounds good. But I worry that with the same people in charge as with STD we'll just end up with more Jar Trek. I'd love to see an actual Star Trek series though, especially with Picard in it. Having Picard in a new show opens up the possibility of a bunch of guest spots from other TNG characters as well. I'm afraid though all of this will come to naught as all we'll get is fake Klingons and non canon garbage. Can you imagine a series with Picard and these fake STD Klingons? Would ruin TNG and Worf.

"For CBS, Star Trek: Discovery is just the beginning.

CBS Television Studios on Tuesday announced a five-year deal with Star Trek: Discovery showrunner Alex Kurtzman and his Secret Hideout production company, who will oversee the production of new Star Trek series. The deal, which runs through 2023, is said to potentially include new traditional shows like Discovery, shorter miniseries and possibly animation. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET's parent company).

And whereas Star Trek: Discovery runs on the CBS All Access streaming service in the US and Netflix internationally, the new deal includes having these shows potentially air on broadcast channels, cable and streaming services.

Kurtzman was recently elevated to showrunner for Discovery, taking over the role from departing executive producers Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg last week. The show's second season is currently in production and is expected to air in 2019.

One of these possible shows could be a very big deal for fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Hollywood Reporter says Patrick Stewart might reprise his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in a series that would be led by Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman, a former executive producer on Discovery. THR's sources say a deal isn't close to complete, and might not happen.

Meanwhile Variety is reporting four other possible shows, which sound like they cover a wide variety of programs. These include a series set at Starfleet Academy from the creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz (the two developed CW's reboot of Dynasty and Marvel's Runaways series for Hulu), a limited series based on Star Trek's Wrath of Khan story, another limited series with no available plot details and an animated series with no available plot details. None of these possible shows have been confirmed."

If STD is on a non-pay channel I may watch. I find myself less and less interested in a lot of the new shows. Too much SJW nonsense on these days.
Stewart will be 80 by the time his show would be on. I don't doubt his ability just saying maybe it's not the actor that viewers want but story.

They're not going to put STD on regular tv, just supposedly the new shows. All STD is is SJW nonsense, and not even canon nonsense at that. I expect that any new show with Picard will cast him as an admiral and he'll just be assigning missions to some new crew. Basically he'll be in it to draw fans but won't actually be the star of the show.
