New Star Trek TV Series in the Works??

Postby Bouncy Castle » Fri Aug 26, 2011 9:37 am

Den of Geek:

It’s now six years since we last saw a new Star Trek television series, after Enterprise aired for the last time back in 2005.

But according to recent reports, Star Trek’s TV-based voyages could be far from over.

David Foster, a writer, producer and head of the production company 1947 Entertainment, has revealed that he’s planning a new series that is designed to take Star Trek back to its “original series roots.” He’s said the new show will take in all the usual Roddenberry trappings – Klingons, Vulcans and Ferengi, for example – but will feature a much younger cast.

“The series concept is fully developed, subject to change of course,” Foster told Trek Web, “with a solid 5-7 year series plan, pilot script and a conceptualized finale that intends to define Star Trek for generations.”
Foster’s series will take place after the Voyager series of a few years back, and won’t conflict with JJ Abrams’ big-screen take on the Star Trek mythos, since it’s set in a different timeline.

While Foster’s hardly a household name, he’s clearly passionate about sci-fi, and was one of the collaborators behind Richard Hatch’s Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming four-minute trailer that emerged about a decade ago. Ultimately, it was Ronald D Moore’s darker take on BSG that was ultimately picked up for television a few years later.

Foster’s Star Trek is still at the pitching stage, so it’s far too early to say whether his concept will ever amount to much more than words on paper. His ideas for the show sound intriguing, though, and you can read the full interview over at Trek Web here….

I enjoyed Enterprise. The first season was a bit shaky, but so was the first season of TNG. :D

Forgive my ignorance, but which one is the one with Kirk?

Star Trek the original series or just Star Trek.
Only the later series had extra titles.

Enterprise was pretty good, especially season 3. I'd look forward to a new ST show.

This worries me though:
'I have developed an extremely deep passion for the original vision of Gene Roddenberry. And while Star Trek has moved on with other series that were not exactly in line with Gene's original vision, the roots are there to tap into.'

DS9 was my favourite show since it had something the others didn't: conflict between the main cast. Hope this isn't going to be all lovey-dovey.

I wouldn't watch TNG for the first three seasons, I was an objector. So when I finally got round to watching it, it was alright.

I couldn't watch Enterprise cos it was on Sky and we didn't have it, then we didn't have a telly at all for a year. I saw an episode where Trip Tucker got his shirt off though, I could see myself enjoying a few more episodes like that one.

DS9 rocked, then slowed down, then rocked a lot, then fizzled out.

TOS was amazing. (although the third season maybe not so much)
