New Series Won’t Simply Be Called “STAR TREK”

New Series Won't Simply Be Called "STAR TREK"

While the logo in the first teaser trailer plainly says “Star Trek”, we’ve received word that a more specific title for the new series will be unveiled at a later date.

Much like the previous live-action installments of Star Trek on television, the new show will distinguish itself from The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise, according to a report on Variety.

You can watch the first teaser for the new series below.

The first episode of the new series will premiere with a broadcast TV special on CBS. That episode and all subsequent episodes will be exclusively shown in the US on the video streaming service CBS All Access.

Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller and Rod Roddenberry have been announced as executive producers, with Nicholas Meyer (director of The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country and co-writer of The Voyage Home) is serving as a writer and consulting producer.

      bit too reminiscent of Marvel I’d imagine.

        True, but the original Star Trek spinoff in the 70s (before they decided to make it into a movie) was going to be called Star Trek: Phase II.

    Fantastic and can’t wait!
    Just hope CBS puts some of it on regular broadcast channels also!
