    I suspect it will take place in the rebooted universe so anything goes, really.

    Watching the newer films I always thought a series with that cast would be really good

    I wouldn't expect that even though I'd love that. But they want to "introduce new characters", so chances for that happening are highly unlikely. :(

    Would be really cool if this takes place in the "rebooted movie universe" but the tv show is TNG!!!

    ...They should cast James McAvoy as Jean-Luc Picard... lol

    And the name of the newest Star Trek television series is... Star Trek: Discovery, with the show's main ship called the U.S.S. Discovery (NCC-1031). Executive Producer Bryan Fuller revealed the details and debuted the logo today during a standing-room-only “Star Trek 50th Anniversary” panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.





    Star Trek: Discovery is coming to CBS All Access in January 2017, following the premiere on the CBS Television Network, and will be distributed concurrently on Netflix in 188 countries and through Bell Media in Canada

    The Show has been put back to March. And I suspect it'll be put back further and further as it proves to be very very problematic.

    being star trek in todays world, it has no choice but to be SJW and Pc.The captain is a femal (for some odd reason)and i'm sure the whole cast will be bisexual or trans.

    Why is the fact that the Captain is female odd? I mean has already been an awesome female Captain in the Star Trek universe in Voyager.

    I do however agree I just know that it's going to PC crazy which I find a shame things should just be and not have to be a set anything.

    I just don't know what they could not have continued on the Next Generation with the Enterprise E with Riker at the helm and new adventures set 25 years after the original Encounter at Farpoint. Would have been far easier and to my point of view a lot more entertaining. Actually explore that world after 25 years.
