Fact Is, We Don't Know What New Trek Is

Gossip, rumors are just that ... gossip, rumors

Some other news outlets are just starting to pick up on a rumor 1701News reported last week that suggested the upcoming Star Trek television series on CBS All Access could be set in the AbramsVerse. What that means is that the alternate timeline established by 2009's "Star Trek," which was directed by J.J. Abrams, could be the canonical home of the new Star Trek series. But then again, maybe not. The fact is, despite all the reports that have been circulating about the new ...

Trek's Prime Universe 'Closed For Business'?

Latest rumor suggests new series will take place in AbramsVerse

There might have been a little bit of truth to some of the gossip last month about the new Star Trek series planned for CBS All Access. A source tells 1701News that the series, set to debut in January on the subscription streaming service, could be a prequel of sorts, taking place after Capt. Kirk and his voyages of the USS Enterprise. With one catch — it won't be in the prime universe of Star Trek pre-2009, but instead set in the new universe brought to us by J.J. Abrams. "There is apparently a contingent within CBS that views the prime universe closed for business," said ...

Did Alexander Courage Steal 'Star Trek' Theme?

Nicholas Meyer says maybe, Richard Arnold says no

The last several weeks have been busy for Nicholas Meyer. The two-time Star Trek movie director first joined the writing staff of the new Star Trek series for CBS All Access. He sold his Palisades-based home for $5.4 million. And he accused the late composer Alexander Courage of possibly lifting his famous "Star Trek" theme fanfare from a 1951 movie. "There can be no doubt that much original music has been composed for the series and its various spinoffs and feature ...

Star Trek Films With Biggest Box Office Bang

EXCLUSIVE: We compare all 12 movies, all in one place

Do Star Trek fans support the films just because they are Star Trek? Are more recent outings like "Star Trek: Into Darkness" and the upcoming "Star Trek: Beyond" getting a pass simply because they contain our favorite characters? That has been the question Trekkies have been asking for at least the past seven years since director J.J. Abrams released "Star Trek." We see the hundreds of millions of dollars that film and "Into Darkness" have generated, but is it above the past films, like "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home"? Is it even on par? Finding the right comparison can be ...

Roddenberry Still Knows Little About New Trek Series

PLUS: Creator's son talks fan-films, and lawsuits ... kind of

Although it's been a few weeks since Rod Roddenberry joined the team of the upcoming Star Trek: Series 6 as an executive producer, it seems the son of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry still knows little about the show Bryan Fuller is putting together. "I know very little about the direction," Roddenberry told TrekZone's Matt Miller. "I've had two meetings with Bryan Fuller. He brought the writers together, and h ...

The 'Axanar' script and good Star Trek films

When I was asked to read the script he’d gotten for the controversial fan-film "Star Trek: Axanar" and write up my thoughts regarding the script, I was more than happy to oblige. I'd already expressed my doubts over the “professional” nature of the project’s production plan. Taking a look at the script and seeing how if it worked based on what I’ve learned about writing, directing, and producing, was definitely of interest. Besides, I just really wanted to know if the script ...

Star Trek Producer Harve Bennett Dies, 84

Credited with breathing new life into two different Trek movie timelines

Harve Bennett was a producer many Star Trek fans didn't know, and those who did may not have given him a lot of credit. But anyone who enjoys the Star Trek movie franchise of today pretty much should tip their hat to Bennett, who died Wednesday in Oregon. He was 84. Bennett was a producer and a writer, who was instrumental in films such as "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock," "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" and "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier." If being a producer wasn't enough, he also was credited for stories and even screenplays for tho ...

It's been a bidding war to capture the show, TV Wise's Patrick Munn reports, but it seems the two top contenders are longtime Trek home Sky 1, and a newcomer that recently secured all the past Star Trek tele ...
