Fuller: Trek TV Gossip Rated ‘Pants On Fire’

Set before TNG? Nope. Anthology? Nope

Bryan Fuller won’t share too many details of the new Star Trek series, reportedly saving them for San Diego Comic-Con next month. But what he can say is all that gossip originating from a blog with unverified and uncorroborated information? Totally not true. Fuller, the former “Star Trek: Voyager” writer who will serve as showrunner for the CBS All Access series, says reports that circulated over the spring that set his show after “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” and before “Star Trek: The Next Generation” is false. Also false? The fact that the new series would be an …

25 Years Later: Bombshells From ‘Best Of Both Worlds’

How one line, ‘To be continued,’ changed ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ forever

It’s hard to imagine now, but despite the introduction of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” in 1987, the 1980s still belonged to Capt. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the crew of the original USS Enterprise. Few took the show seriously, and it even spilled over into the conventions. “The fans were split on the acceptance of the show,” said Ronald D. Moore, one of TNG’s writers who would go on to redevelop “Battlestar Galactica” for Syfy. “You would go to conventions and there would be bumper stickers and T-shirts that basically said, ‘I’m a real Trekker. Forget the bald guy.’ Stuff l …

Masterson: ‘Deep Space Nine’ Transcends Time

Celebrating recent role in ‘The Flash,’ Chase Masterson talks a little about Trek’s past

Sometimes it’s hard to believe how many episodes of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” featured Chase Masterson’s character Leeta (just 17). Yet, Leeta has become an enduring character in Trek fandom, and Masterson a fan-favorite both online and on the convention circuit. So it’s no surprise her recent guest role on The CW series “The Flash” has been getting a lot of attention. That attention, she recently told Voices From Krypton, is thanks to the fact that DS9 was a hit, not just when it was running, but afterward. And they all knew it would be, even some 20 years ago. “We knew …

Big Galileo Question: Restored Or Replica?

‘Star Trek’ prop, heading to Houston, is about 15 percent original

You buy a house, replace the roof, put up new siding, maybe even replace all the windows. But it’s still the same house, right? That’s the analogy Adam Schneider uses when talking about one of his most public “Star Trek” memorabilia buys of all time — the purchase of the Shuttlecraft Galileo exterior prop from the 1960s television series. “It’s a very complicated question,” Schneider told 1701News as he readied the Galileo for its debut at Space Center Houston. “When I was born, I weighed 5 pounds and 2 ounces. I had 195 pounds added to my frame since then, but I’m still t …

Exploring Bryan Fuller’s Trek Resume, Part 1

How might the writer’s past episodes influence the future?

If there’s anyone who doesn’t need a resume handy when applying for a job running a new Star Trek series, it’s certainly Bryan Fuller.

Janeway and her valiant crew s …

Could Fuller’s Trek Series Re-Boot TNG?

New TV show co-creator gave hints about new Trek in 2013

It’s a little bit of the old mixed in with a little bit of the new. Alex Kurtzman, who made his name in Star Trek through the J.J. Abrams-directed films, was first attached to the new Star Trek series planned for next January by CBS All Access. But now a face from Star Trek past, Bryan Fuller, has come aboard as well. What does this mean? Will this be Star Trek in the new universe that Kurtzman helped create? Or could it be Star Trek from the old universe that Fuller has been a part of through shows like “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”? Or could it be …

Is CBS Trying To Make Star Trek ‘Cool’?

Network should excite fans, embrace what made the franchise great

To boldly go where no one has gone before … At least, one would hope so. Most of the world has heard the news: Star Trek, after a 10-year hiatus, is returning to television in the early months of 2017, or at least partly. CBS Television Studios says it will launch a new Star Trek television series in January 2017. The new series will begin with the first episode being broadcast on CBS and all later episodes broadcast exclusively on CBS All Access, the network’s digital-subscription and live-streaming service. So, basically CBS wants us to shell out $6 per month to wa …
