    It needs to be back on TV. J.J.'s movies are Star Wars prequels.

    Eh, I think it depends entirely on who'd end up running it. Taking it out of JJ's hands won't automatically make it better. And, to be honest, I think it'd only confuse matters for franchise purposes. These days -- DC Comics notwithstanding -- the trend is towards brand unification, not fragmentation. So I don't see anything on TV being different from JJ's continuity.

    Yeah, although I agree that Trek works best on TV, I think the powers that be really want to establish a film franchise. They have potential but they also have had missteps. A lot is riding on the next film.

    The fragmentation happened when JJ and his supreme court decided that they didn't want anything to do with the original continuity. And before they even committed the Enterprise on a mission of exploration, everyone who helped start this new continuity has already moved on to other projects. CBS has TOS-VOY which spans decades of television and stories where JJ only has two movies that always deal with saving the Earth.

    And even if the series did take place in JJ's continuity, you think they'll be able to get all the actors from the movies to play the original crew? I highly doubt it. Not even Agents of SHIELD could get a movie title character to appear in any one of their episodes. Unless CBS does their own reboot of TOS, there isn't going to be a show following the original series crew even if it was set in JJ's continuity, so what's the point? You want to follow a continuity that only has two movies that barely go anywhere, or a continuity that has decades of stories that helped shape science fiction in general? It certainly has the better Khan.

    It probably will be (at least for a while) after the next film, at least for a while.
    That said, there are a few gems to be found in the fan film arena. Phase 2 has been a little hit and miss, Continues looks promising, and I loved Prelude to Axanar (even though it's a toattly different feel to TV Trek, it still works). I guess it just shows that decent Trek comes from those that actually love/understand the source material.

    I just hope it's in the real universe post Voyager and not the reboot crap.

    I still think it would be better to have a series that involves a different ship and crew but in the same period as the original series.

    I'm sorry, but while the fan stuff may have good stories, the acting in them is so horrible I want to gouge out my eyes and rip out my eardrums. The different tv series of Star Trek may not have had award-worthy acting, but it never made me want to do that.

    As long as there is a female crew member with big Spaceballs in a tight catsuit.

    With this rumor, I also hope they announce that DS9 and Voyager are hitting Blu-Ray.

    FIX STAR TREK!

    Get back to the roots and tell compelling Sci Fi tales that Trek could once do so very well.

    It's the same content being regurgitated with no actual source, they just link back to the "latino-review" article at the bottom of the page.

    This is why I don't like internet "reporting", people just repeat something they read elsewhere as if it were fact.

    Wonder if this is case of "Where's there's smoke..." I don't know, we'll see. If Disney comes to the obvious conclusion they're leaving money on the table by not making more Star Wars content, you have to be pretty sure someone at CBSP is asking those some questions about a Trek tv series.

    why not new series with new ship/crew that has alot of stuff from voyager added to it? after all it took back borg technology, future technology and lots more. potential enough there for a good writer.

    Someone made a point that a new Star Trek show just wouldn't fit into the kind of channel that CBS is currently. Even saying that it would have a better chance being on Showtime (owned by CBS) than CBS itself.

    No, I mean it was SW that lit a fire under Paramount to bring back Trek in 1979!

    Agreed. There are so many things that they did right in TOS that they have never done well in any other series. As far as I'm concerned, Star Trek ended in the 60s. The rest has all been crap.

    I don't think there's a tv show I want more than new trek. Not even live action star wars. If they set it post Voyager it would make my day.
    Similarly to how I always expected more star wars movies to be made, I'm sure trek back on tv will happen eventually. Just a matter of when.

    Well ours has a cast of mostly professional actors, but most productions don't. It's also really hard to have pros in it because once they go SAG we have to replace them. Plus most fan productions come from people being fans and not from them being professional filmmakers.

    All costs are out of pocket since we can't make money or fundraise, so that plays into quality too.

    Well hopefully with SW taking off again and all the studios seemingly scrambling to put together a Marvel-esque movie plan, someone over there will decide they better get ST back on TV soon.

    99.997% of "journalists" are just that. Can't even do a quick fact check to find out that JJ's 2009 Star Trek film DID NOT come out 2008 :facepalm

    Latinoreview: "So new Star Trek series happening & going to Netflix 2016 called STAR TREK GALAXY with Bryan Singer involved :) I'm happy. NO APRIL FOOLS"

    Which means it's likely April Fools.

    For the duds they have reported, they have dozens more real scoops to prove that they are more than mere hacks. Let's give credit where credit is due.

    Umberto Gonzalez from Latino Review aka elmayimbe on Twitter.

    elmayimbe: "Guys, Waingro over at flatline is going to confirm our Star Trek TV story today. So heads up when he arrogantly doesn't give us credit."

    He is referring to Deadline.com. The site publishes exclusive/breaking stories from time to time mainly due to the news given directly by the studio. But they are also known to publish stories which was taken from other sites which had the exclusive scoop first, but Deadline never credits those sites and publishes them as their own.

    Anyways, this rumor might lead to something after all. Star Trek on Netflix, didn't see that coming.

    elmayimbe: "No April Fools. The Star Trek TV story is real. It's going to Netflix."

    I've been hearing about this for a while now but never watched an episode.
    I clicked on your link and now I can't stop watching.
    This is brilliant! Thank you!

    Gotta agree, that was good. If I didn't know better I would swear that I was watching an episode of the Original series. Well done.

    Up until enterprise I could say I had seen every episode of every TV show that star trek made, I spent hundreds of pounds buying videos that are worthless now of TNG, DS9 and voyager because the UK was years behind and I didn't want to be, and I couldn't even be bothered to watch every week on a show that was on tv for free of star trek, for someone that had bought countless books, action figures, models and toys of star trek, suddenly I found myself in the position of new star trek being a bit, meh.

    If you bring it back to tv, you better have interesting stories to tell, but if you are bringing it back just to milk the cash cow for a bit more, then just don't, that well ran dry decades ago.

    I know a couple of the people that has been dealing with CBS about the proposed new series. With the reboot movie cast signing the fourth film deal it has effectively killed that potential series. Its one thats not been mentioned in this thread (that I noticed) nor mentioned in the Latino Review article.

    Well they will be surprised at the backlash if they think a tv show based on the JJ universe would fly.

    It's easy to say that a new series should be as good as the original. The problem is that there is no Gene Roddenberry behind the effort.

    Fan productions are to be lauded, but if you want great stories, with the character development and chemistry behind them and the attendant production value, you need someone with the vision (and the financing) behind them to pull it off.
