New Star Trek series in the works?

October 12th, 2013 by bash Comments

Roberto Orci, one of the men behind the recently rebooted Star Trek, has allegedly told a SKY News reporter that he has met CBS chiefs about a new TV series based on Gene Roddenberry’s creation.

At a recent UK press junket for Ender’s Game, the JJ Abrams collaborator told reporter Joe Michaelczuk that there has been a meeting to bring the influential sci-fi franchise back to television.

Michaelczuk tweeted: “Bob Orci just told me they’ve had a meeting with CBS to revive @StarTrek on TV…This made me v excited.”

No idea who they are although it wouldn’t be much of a jump to suggest that producing partner Alex Kurtzman would be one of them.

The big question now is: will the new series, if it comes to fruition, recast the Enterprise crew or will we see an altogether different take a la Deep Space Nine?

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
