It does not seem right somehow that with all the vast TV Programmes on air, a Star Trek show is not part of it all, but after the flop of prequel series Enterprise, it was perhaps time for the iconic franchise to take a break from the small screen.
With 2016 being the 50th anniversary since Gene Roddenberry’s original aired and with a new film on the horizon, CBS last year confirmed that they looking to bring a new show to their station and Star Trek Into Darkness writer Alex Kurtzman will serve as Executive Producer.
News has broke that a showrunner has also been hired and would you believe that Bryan Fuller, the master behind Hannibal is the guy to put a whole new crew and Enterprise on a mission to seek out new worlds.
“My very first experience of ‘Star Trek’ is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the ‘Star Trek’ universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand new iteration of ‘Star Trek’ with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no ‘Star Trek’ series has gone before.” Fuller said, confirming the news.
All of a sudden Star Trek: The Next Next Generation (not an official title) looks a real promising bit of telly.
