We currently have no idea who is going to be the Captain of the new prime time Star Trek TV series (that is supposedly to debut in 2017 on CBS).
The new Star Trek series doesn’t currently have a working title, or any known plot line, from the sound of it it’s just a bunch of ideas that will be nailed down probably sometime in the next few months if it’s to be debuted in 2017.
CBS is committed to the idea though…
And I doubt CBS could afford to turn the current set of actors in the recent Star Trek movies into TV actors…
We’re most likely going to get an entirely new cast with guest appearances from the big movie names. That’s my bet.
And FYI, there’s a ridiculous amount of Star Trek projects in development right now considering that there is no anchor TV show currently in production.
Current Projects Floating Around Out There:
- Untitled Star Trek Project
