Star Trek to warp back to the small screen - maybe!
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.
Star Trek can be sexy
“The series concept is fully developed, subject to change of course,”
Foster told highly rated Star Trek fan site, 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.
