That's right, you will have to pay $6 a month to watch a Star Trek "TV" show produced by the guy responsible for fucking FRINGE and fucking SLEEPY HOLLOW

tho by the time the show comes out in 2017, they'll probably raise the price to bilk the dorpy Trekkos


and, at no additional charge, you will also get to watch all the other CBS programmes already freely broadcast thru the air

The news that Star Trek is, at long last, returning to episodic adventures (I still have a hard time calling a streaming service 'TV'), has heartened many Trekkos. This is where Trek belongs, with the movies being nice additions to a larger canon that was formed one hour at a time. That news also brings with it a big question: in which reality will this new series be set? Will it be in the same time/universe as the Star Trek movies - ie, around the dates of the original series but with advanced tech and no planet Vulcan - or will it be set in the original continuity, which didn't end but was only abandoned?

There are a lot of clues, some of which are conflicting, but first we have to look at the history of Trek and Paramount. CBS and Viacom, Paramount's parent company, split in 2006, and with them was divided the rights to Trek. All of the original universe stuff stays at CBS, who has continued creating licensed merch that celebrates Shatner's Kirk et al (they just released the autobiography of Shatner's Kirk, for instance), while all the reboot movie stuff has stayed with Paramount. As part of the split CBS retained rights to future Trek TV shows; this was a stumbling block that kept JJ Abrams from creating a transmedia Trek empire in the wake of the new timeline. That split is real - within CBS the JJ universe is referred to as the alt timeline, with the understanding being that the stories told in the original series and its spin-offs are the real universe. You're watching some Earth-2 shit in the movies these days.

CBS has a real stake in keeping that original universe alive. They still make a lot of money on original universe merch, and they have hundreds upon hundreds of hours of content set in that universe, episodes and movies they would prefer to not see rendered irrelevant by making the JJ verse the main universe. Setting this new show in the main universe - Next Generationing The Next Generation, perhaps - would be a smart move that would allow them to continue working with, and building on, five decades of continuity. By skipping ahead a generation after Picard and friends they could maintain the futuristic visuals of the new series - the Apple Store bridges, the new uniforms - while keeping their history alive.

BUT  ... CBS has hired Alex Kurtzman to run the show. He was one of the architects of the new films (alongside Roberto Orci, who I imagine will never get to see the inside of another starship), so his involvement in the new series raises questions. Why bring this guy in if you're not working in the JJverse? The answers may be simple and boring: CBS Television Studios already has a deal in place with Kurtzman, and he's a proven commodity on television. Kurtzman's not actually involved in the main Trek films at this point (and after Star Trek Beyond it's possible that JJ Abrams' Bad Robot won't be either), but if he can help create any sort of connection between the universes that would be a plus. And telling new audiences that you have one of the creators of the new Trek movies is sort of like shorthand for saying "This won't be as dull as The Next Generation."

The official announcement was very vague, saying only that the new show won't be connected to Star Trek Beyond, but that could simply mean it's a show about a non-Enterprise crew. It's possible that CBS hasn't even decided where to set the series just yet - with a 2017 debut they have a little while to firm up their exact plans, although one imagines that Kurtzman had a strong pitch to get the job.

There are two ways this could go: the DC way or the Marvel way. Marvel's TV series and movies are linked, however tenuously, theoretically offering a lot of opportunities for cross-promotion and also creating a sense of FOMO in the hardcore faithful (that's prolly why Sangeet has stuck with Agents of SHIELD into season 3). Meanwhile the DC TV shows are not only disconnected from the upcoming movies, they're disconnected from each other - Supergirl and The Flash do not live on the same planet. So far there's not enough data to really decide which approach is better, and each has their fans and their detractors. We don't even yet know whether DC's approach will create confusion in audiences when The Flash in the movies is not the same The Flash on TV.

The Marvel approach does seem like it makes the most sense for CBS, who is selling the new show as part of their CBS All Access app at 6 bucks a month. That's not a terrible price - if the show is weekly it's like $1.50 an hour, way cheaper than comic books or movies - but it's a decent price for a service that feels like it's replicating other services for which we already pay. While the new Trek films haven't exactly set box office records they still outperform all previous Trek iterations, and bringing in some of that audience would behoove the company on the launch of this service. At the same time CBS may decide they would rather double down on the existing fanbase and simply cater to those people who are already used to spending lots of money on Trek stuff.

Neither approach is wrong, but considering the buzz I've heard from within CBS - they don't love the reboot movies - I wouldn't be surprised to find that the new series takes place in the original continuity. With the reboot films doing okay but not great we might find ourselves in a a situation where the JJverse withers away after Star Trek 4 (if they even get there - Chris Pine Scent and Zachary Quinto signed on, but if Star Trek Beyond doesn't perform Paramount's just gonna disengage) while Trek boldly goes on TV. Or streaming, which is the new TV. Still, they'll be boldly going in the same universe in which William Shatner is Kirk and where you can still land your shuttle on the surface of Vulcan.

Set phasers to stun, warp to 8.6 and jumpsuits to abrasive non-porous polyester – CBS has announced its intention to get a new Star Trek TV show out of spacedock and into service by January 2017. The franchise turns 50 next year, and while the next and third film in the rebooted cinematic series will mark the brand’s golden birthday, a return to smaller screens is deemed an acceptable celebration for its 51st.

Alex Kurtzman, a co-writer on both “revival” films so far, will helm the series, and besides its involving “new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilisations” and that it “is not related to the upcoming feature film Star Trek Beyond”, specific details of what shape the show will take are scant. The problem Kurtzman faces is that since the show was last on air, the TV landscape has shifted.

Is there still a place for classic Star Trek on television in the modern age?

Many fans – perhaps still smarting from the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise, the last televisual incarnation, in 2005 – will see this as Star Trek’s long-overdue return to its spiritual home. TV is where it all began, after all; where we really got to know Kirk, and Picard, and Sisko. Where the minutiae of the characters and universe could be explored and unravelled in unhurried detail. At their best, the TV shows ruminated on the biggest questions it’s possible to ponder – life, the universe and everything. Viewed from the post–Breaking Bad TV landscape of 2015 though, at their worst – and apologies to any Trekkites out there – they were sometimes ponderous and slightly dull.

Kurtzman’s recent Star Trek films were many things, but they were not boring. Nor were they thoughtful, or reflective, or have anything to say that wasn’t yelled at the top of their lungs. They didn’t feel like Star Trek at all: more rambunctious sci-fi action-comedies – JJ Abrams Star Wars-ing Star Trek before jumping ship and Star Wars-ing Star Wars, effectively. What Kurtzman must decide is which Star Trek to make: his – slick, brash, modern – or the one that died in 2005. The one he thinks fans of the classic series would like to see, or the one for the Chris Pine generation.

It’s hard to imagine a Star Trek TV show, as they were in the 60s through to the 00s, ever seeing the light of day in 2017. The Next Generation’s sterile, ascetic, classical recital-obsessed do-gooding seems oddly quaint by modern standards. Deep Space 9’s political and administrative obsessions also only burst into life in the sporadic conflicts of its later seasons [Yak's note: not sure what this limey is on about, the political themes of DS9 were laid out in the pilot, and the Dominion Menace emerged by season 3]. Voyager’s premise of a ship stranded on the other side of the galaxy went on several seasons too long, while many fans old and new never found a sure foothold in Enterprise’s dirt-under-the-fingernails back-to-basics origin tale (or its god-awful theme tune). As with the rebooted films, perhaps aligning it to the original series’ more swashbuckling vibrancy would yield the most exciting show for newcomers, with the obvious risk of sidelining a hardcore fanbase clamouring for something more akin to the pacifistic post-Kirk Star Trek they fell in love with.

It’s certain that the success of the film reboot was a driving force in this new show’s existence, and perhaps Kurtzman’s involvement (his previous TV credits include romps like Sleepy Hollow, Alias and Fringe) is the clearest sign as to what we can expect from it. If it were to share some of the more knockabout rebelliousness of the new films, there are millions of still-bereft Firefly fans who can attest that this is no guarantee of success on the small screen. Conversely, if it goes down the more plaintive road, the husk of the shortlived Stargate: Universe is evidence of the same. Trek obviously has an entrenched fanbase, but grand sci-fi is a tricky business – a small, loyal following is simply not an option with overheads of this size.

Also casting doubt on a return to Trek’s procedural TV roots is the extent to which serialised TV has become colossal business, with every network hoping to produce the next spoilerific watercooler phenomenon. With the weight of the Star Trek brand behind it, it’s entirely plausible that CBS would seek to create a grittier, more compulsive Star Trek to wrest Game Of Thrones and Walking Dead-level megabucks from the wallets of the Netflix generation. Battlestar: Enterprise is a possibility. It could also be terrific – if only Star Trek by name and little else.

However Kurtzman plays it, there is a groundswell of a resurgent interest in sci-fi, thanks in no small part to his own work on the Star Trek films and JJ Abrams’ imminent Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There’s never been a better time to get a new series of Star Trek off the ground. He’s just got to make the call – old Trek or new?

or prehaps Cronenberg Presents CSI : Lost X-Files meets Futurama, or at least this dude:



yes, the FRINGE programme tried to differentiate itself from X-Files by saying "look, we prominently feature an old kooky professor on our show"

if you watch Fox's FRINGE show, the kooky science man will look familiar, and that is because he was in those unending elf movies as Vice President Denethor :

Hmm, this is the first confirmation I can recall ... that elements of the Orci / Payne / McKay script were used as a basis for a Jung-Pegg rewrite.

I did know that.  I think we discussed how the Battlestar Galactica multiverse was created by a Mormon.  I guess some Mormons have fancy imaginations.
