Shtar Trek: DISCHCOVERY (New Star Trek, 2017)

Alex Kurtzman is attached to the new series, which will premiere in January 2017 on CBS before new episodes debut on its digital and VOD platform.

Just in time for its 50th anniversary, Star Trek is returning to the small screen.

Prolific producer Alex Kurtzman is developing a new take on the beloved sci-fi classic for TV, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The new Star Trek has been picked up straight to series at CBS, with the premiere slated for the network in January 2017. Subsequent episodes will air on its digital and VOD platform, CBS All Access. The premiere and all subsequent episodes will then be available in the U.S. on CBS All Access, the network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service. Star Trek marks the first original series developed specifically for CBS All Access.

The new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.
The cross-platform streaming service, which hosts thousands of episodes from CBS' roster (both past and present) is available for $5.99 per month. Included in the fee is the ability to stream the local network live. All previous Star Trek series are currently available on CBS All Access. CBS Studios International will distribute the series for TV and multiple platforms around the world.

The drama is set up at CBS Television Studios and Kurtzman's Secret Hideout banner. Kurtzman and development head Heather Kadin will exec produce. A search is under way for a writer to take on the cult hit. The franchise is poised to celebrate its 50th anniversary as the original series debuted Sept. 8, 1966.

The new Star Trek TV series continues Kurtzman's relationship with the beloved franchise. He produced the Star Trek feature film series, co-writing 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness and 2009's franchise revival. The fourth in the franchise set for 2019, though Kurtzman is not attached.

CBS TV Studios distributed the original series, which was produced by Paramount Television and Desilu Productions. Created by Gene Roddenberry and starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, the series ran for three seasons and 79 episodes from 1966-67 on NBC and became a monster hit via syndication. It spawned an animated series (1973-74), a series of feature films — starting in 1979 — and four TV follow-ups including The Next Generation (1987-1994), Deep Space Nine (1993-99), Voyager (1995-2001) and Enterprise (2001-05).

News of a new Star Trek TV series comes as the franchise has been mired in rights issues between CBS and Paramount after Viacom merged with CBS in 2000. CBS Corp. absorbed Paramount for television, while Paramount Studios — the company that distributed the films — went to Viacom.

The Star Trek revival comes as reboots and follow-ups continue to be in high demand on broadcast (and cable/streaming). Kurtzman — and frequent partner Roberto Orci, who is not attached to CBSTVS' Star Trek — is behind CBS' follow-up to Bradley Cooper's Limitless and also exec produces the network's veteran Hawaii Five-0 reboot. The K/O banner currently has four shows on the air — Hawaii, Limitless and sophomore drama Scorpion as well as Fox's Sleepy Hollow. K/O is repped by CAA and Gendler Kelly.

"This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before — directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” said Marc DeBevoise, executive vp and GM at CBS Digital Media. “We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic Star Trek, and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.”


There. Bloody 'ell, at 3am an' all. You're welcome everybody.

Now converse!

They should have a shemale, or at least a Dumbledore character somewhere on oh-so-progressive and future utopia Star Trek. I heard Rick Berman was a homophobe and actively vetoed LGBT storylines. Another rumour: Ron Moore was asked about this and said that Paramount didn't want to interfere with their storylines by banning specific topics--it was all "one person."

That classic Dax scene notwithstanding.

In the new, canon, Star Wars Aftermath book, there's a quiet lesbian couple in their 50's. They're just relatives of a couple of the main characters. Doesn't draw attention to it or anything. And so Star Wars has gone where no Trek has gone before.

It's not even boldly going. Just do it.

The Five Gayest Episodes of Star Trek

...1. "The Host" — Star Trek: The Next Generation

Original air date: May 11, 1991

Dr. Crusher, the Enterprise's chief medical officer and resident MILF, gets cozy with Odan, a diplomat from the little-known Trill alien race, as the ship transports him to negotiate a treaty between the warring moons of some planet. In a misunderstanding, a shuttle carrying Odan is fired upon and he is horribly injured. It is then that the crew discovers that the Trill are actually little gross-looking slugs. The man-shaped thing Dr. Crusher was boffing was just a host body, which can be traded in for a new one when it gets old or damaged. Commander Riker acts as a temporarily host for Odan and the space summit goes on. In the end comes the Sapphic twist: Odan's new body is female and she/he wants to continue her/his fling with Dr. Crusher. "Perhaps it is a human failing but we are not accustomed to these kind of changes," she tells Odan, meaning that the good doctor will get into bed with shifty aliens with weird ridged foreheads but for some reason draws the line at space ladies.

2. "The Outcast" — Star Trek: The Next Generation

Original air date: March 16, 1992

The Enterprise comes to the aid of the J'Naii after they lost a ship in some space wrinkle. Unlike any other Star Trek race we've seen so far, the J'Naii are genderless; they all kind of look like pixie haircut-era Cat Power. Riker is paired with a J'Naii named Soren in a mission to retrieve the ship. Soren begins pelting him with questions about the differences between males and females. "Physically, men are bigger, stronger in the upper body," explains Riker, adding, "We have different sexual organs." Soon Soren feels attracted to Riker and all his beardy manliness, and Riker's body language indicates he'd like to tap whatever it is Soren has got. Then we learn that being a J'Naii with any sexual orientation is like being Dumbledore in Saudi Arabia or Utah. Those who feel "male" or "female" in the presence of bi-gender aliens are sent off to reeducation camps. After another J'Naii witnesses a kiss between Soren and Riker, the former disappears. The rest of the episode is dedicated to Riker's attempt to spring Soren from the J'Naii equivalent of Exodus International.

3. "Rejoined" — Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Original air date: Oct. 30, 1995

The third Star Trek show, Deep Space Nine, featured one of the aforementioned Trill as a main character, though they were redesigned to have spots along the neck and face instead of arcs on their foreheads so as to not interfere with actress Terry Farrell's hotness. In "Rejoined," Farrell's Lt. Jadxia Dax is reunited with Lenara Kahn, to whom she was previously married when inhabiting a male host. Now, both are female, but they're still hot for each other. A human taboo is disguised as an alien one, as Dax frets over the norm that Trills are not supposed to rekindle romances from their previous host lives. (Strangely, the fact that the two are both currently women isn't even mentioned.) Before the episode ends, the two lock lips briefly, and—hey, wouldn't you know it—right in time for a Neilsen sweeps week. Star Trek was apparently not too high-minded for an entry into the lesbian kiss episode genre of the '90s.

4. "Chimera" — Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Original air date: Feb. 17, 1999

Each Star Trek show had a character who acts as an outsider to humanity or to the human-ish characters that dominated every crew. On Deep Space Nine, that character was Odo, the titular space station's chief of security. Though he could take any shape—a mouse, a chair or, most often, a six-foot-tall security officer—Odo's natural state was a big puddle of goo. Because of the more pessimistic world view of DS9, the writers never allowed the perpetually grumpy Odo to overcome his sense of alienation from all the other characters, who had permanent solid forms full of bones and organs. In "Chimera," Odo meets Laas, another of his kind, and invites him to spend some time on DS9. The two engage in the semi-sexual activity of "linking," melting into the same puddle. While Odo is quietly uneasy around other people, Laas shows open disdain for "monoforms," as a preemption to their petty fear of anything markedly different from them, and Odo begins to see his point. Laas transforms into a fog spreading over the station's promenade. Though the crew is annoyed, Odo says Laas is just changing forms, as changelings do. "Well, can't he 'be fog' somewhere else?" asks Chief Petty Officer Miles O'Brien, the show's everyman stand-in. His reaction echoes the sentiment of everyone you know who is ostensibly "OK" with Dumbledore people, but recoils at seeing anyone actually acting Dumbledore. Odo realizes that by spending most of his time as a bipedal humanoid, he is engaging in what, in sociological parlance, is called passing: dropping every attribute of his own cultural group to be accepted into another. In case there was any confusion around the metaphor, Quark, the Ferengi bartender, warns Odo, "This is no time for a Changeling pride demonstration on the promenade." Also, two Klingons decide to commit a hate crime.

5. "Stigma" — Star Trek: Enterprise

Original air date: Feb. 5, 2003

Enterprise, the final Star Trek series, is the first in the franchise's internal chronology. It was set a century before the time of Kirk and Spock, on the very first spaceship called Enterprise. Back then, Vulcans were surprisingly redneck. In "Stigma," TPol, the ship's curvy Vulcan first officer, tries to hunt down information on Pa'nar Syndrome without letting on that she suffers from this highly stigmatized ailment. Pa'nar is spread through mind melds (that thing where Spock reads some screaming dude's thoughts by placing his fingertips on his forehead). Back then Vulcans considered melds an "unnatural activity" practiced by a detested "minority" of telepaths. Thus, finding a cure was not a priority. The fact that T'Pol contracted it through a forced meld a season earlier matters not to the dick-ish Vulcan authorities she encounters. Though it came 15 years late, "Stigma" is a parable for the story of AIDS in the '80s with the Vulcans in the role of the Reagan administration.

there's a LOT of gayness in Aftermath, not just that lesbian couple. the ex-Imperial, Sindir(?), is Dumbledore, which we find out when the bounty hunter tries to hit on him. also, one of the interludes, a young kid talks about having two dads.

He has a history of making genre TV at the very least watchable when he's involved.

However, it's just not always commercially viable to the extent a major channel like CBS would keep it going (or keep him involved).

I imagine CBS want an entertaining, audience-friendly, mainstream, prime-time Star Trek show. Can Bryan Fuller do that?

I'm curious how much this will affect American Gods, where Fuller is also the showrunner.

I was surprised to hear this new series would take place in the so-called "Prime" timeline.

I don't remember any part in STAR TREK '09 where they said that other timeline still exists, even though fans said so in the meantime. I really thought it was all wiped out, and the only series that would still affect the storyline was ENTERPRISE.

At the end of the day, whatever, you can handle it how you want to--there are two parallel timelines, fine.

But now it's like, if it takes place close to one of the other series, they've got to get the technology and uniforms to match.

Then again, the Temporal Cold War already wiped out TOS, TNG, DS9 and VGR, so they can do whatever the f___ they want.

they should just bite the bullet and get GRR Martin to write the next Star Trek movie, he has plenty of ways of bringing dead characters back that don't involve time travel.

I hope so. I probably won't watch, especially now that Fuller won't be involved at all, but I still hope so. I've been going through the original series on Blu-ray and can appreciate, even today, how it pushed the boundaries of representation in popular culture. That should be the show's legacy and the new series should continue that tradition.

They finally get a black woman in the lead and she doesn't even get to be Captain. Oh yeah, the lead on Star Trek is always the Captain, except when it's a black person. First they make Sisko be a Commander for the first 4 years, and now this. I smell a pattern Paramount, and it's called systemic fucking racism. I see what you're doing there. We all do, don't even pretend to be all glorious vision of humanity.

Gene wouldn't a let this shit fly. As soon as he died is when they brought in Deep Space GHETTO. Making COMMANDER Sisko live in a shitty dank dungeon, and always stay in one place. Ooh yeah, you can't have a black man roaming about the galaxy in an actual fucking starship, can you? We can't let them have that kind of mobility. Next they'll be expecting social mobility too.

I don't know what you're talking about.
This one time a Mexican dude got to pilot a star ship.
The dude got to fly all over the galaxy.
Let's just ignore the fact that it was stolen space ship.
At least he got to see Genesis and the Mutara Nebula!

Ooh yeah, you can't have a black man roaming about the galaxy in an actual fucking starship, can you? We can't let them have that kind of mobility. Next they'll be expecting social mobility too.

I don't know what you're talking about.
This one time a Mexican dude got to pilot a star ship.
The dude got to fly all over the galaxy.
Let's just ignore the fact that it was stolen space ship.
At least he got to see Genesis and the Mutara Nebula!

Racist!

That's a Sikh, not a Mexican! But I guess all swarthy-skinned people are the same in the eyes of Star Trek.

Just like "Sulu" with his generic Asian last name (there is no "L" sound in Japanese.)

The New Star Trek Series Finally Realizes Gene Roddenberry’s Ultimate Vision


They finally get a black woman in the lead and she doesn't even get to be Captain. Oh yeah, the lead on Star Trek is always the Captain, except when it's a black person. First they make Sisko be a Commander for the first 4 years, and now this. I smell a pattern Paramount, and it's called systemic fucking racism. I see what you're doing there.

If their aim was to a launch a new Star Trek TV programme for a new generation and to launch a streaming service, I suspect they may have failed on various fronts with that trailer.

I guess I could take the easy route and be a sheep, just parrot what everybody else is saying :-P .........but shit, that wouldn't be me at all, would it? i genuinely pity those who are more interested in conveying an "i'm too cool to think this is good" vibe" than being open to enjoying new genre material. especially the same people who gush over junk like "The Evil Dead" :roll:

what the hell? did these people ever watch the original Star Trek at all? the one with a russian guy and a Dumbledore asian helmsman (ok, he wasn't publicly Dumbledore yet, but c'mon...) and the first televised interracial kiss and the vulcan saying about "infinite diversity in infinite combinations", etc etc. Star Trek was politically correct before there was a term for it.

Two fools, one thought.

I'm sure the casting was a deliberate decision, rather than a coincidence, but in what kind of show if not Star Trek would it have it's place.

I'm wondering how awfully obvious the diversity in a Star Trek series would hasve to be to feel forced, maybe they could include an actual white genocide.

we all know the real problem with star trek isnt racial diversity or political correctness.

it's the overwhelmingly speciesist attitude towards other alien races that the show still refuses to cast a non-human character as the captain of a Federation starship. oh sure, you can have a Vulcan science officer or a Klingon security officer, but an alien captain? perish the thought.

The real problem is that they insist on casting human actors as the aliens and put them in ridicoulus 'alien-face' make-up.

Re: "Bryan Fuller is a Unicorn!"

Postby TheButcher on Fri Jun 09, 2017 7:03 am

Alex Kurtzman on ‘Star Trek: Discovery’, Bryan Fuller’s Exit, and LGBT Representation
The writer/producer also explains those premiere date delays.
ADAM CHITWOOD wrote:Specifically, with Fuller gone, are his footprints no longer noticeable on the show?

“No absolutely there are footprints left on the show. Someone once described Bryan to me as a unicorn and that’s just the truth. He’s a one of a kind writer. He’s just unbelievably brilliant and I really, really loved working with him and I loved seeing the way that his mind worked. Bryan was very involved in American Gods and I think that the scope and scale of what Trek has become made it so that Bryan elected to say, ‘I don’t wanna short-change either of these two things,’ they’re both sort of beloved to him, so we sat down and we figured out how are we going to take what we can have of you and continue that through not only this season of Trek but hopefully set up things that are coming next season. So much of what’s there in terms of story and certainly in terms of set-up, character, big ideas, the big movement of the season, that’s all stuff that Bryan and I talked about.”
