Star Trek news

Post by ffutures » Tue Nov 03, 2015 1:32 am

CBS is going to run a new Star Trek tv series, debut in 2017.

http://www.cnet.com/news/star-trek-to-w ... ew-series/

But it's only going to be available on their paid subscription service. Apparently to be directed produced by the guy who directed produced ST: Into Darkness.

Sorry, but if it doesn't have Cook and Banks, er, I mean Kirk and Spock, it's not Star Trek.

i read that as well. the poster was hoping that the new show would be in the original star trek universe.

He went on to say the reboot movies were in a parallel universe. hadnt really put much thought into it but it makes sense as in the original TV show and in DS9 and STNG, Vulcan was still around and was visited many times. This would be a bit of a problem if Vulcan had been blown up BEFORE Kirk even became captain of the Enterprise!!

Or maybee there are several parallel universes? would explain the differences in the Klingons between original series and STNG..lol
Arthur: OK. Leave this to me. I'm British. I know how to queue.
OR i could go with
Arthur Dent: I always said there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe.
or simply

They made some experiments with human genes which spread through the Klingon race in order to improve physical and mental abilities, but it had unexpected side consequences, namely flattening the forehead and losing hair! These effects took a few centuries to disappear again. It's explained in an episode of the NX-01 series taking place ~2150 where they are looking like in NG.
