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.

Plus, I really felt the story I was going to talk about would not get any traction anywhere.

Should Star Trek TV Series Take Cues From ‘Fargo’?

A Vox columnist has an interesting take on how small-screen Trek could return

There have been plenty of ideas for what a new Star Trek television series should be like, yet CBS Television — which holds the boob tube rights to the franchise — seems no closer than before in returning Trek to television after a 10-year absence.

Chase Masterson Casts Light On Bullying At Comic-Con

‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ alum brings together coalition to make a difference

It might be easy to look at Chase Masterson and ask what someone as beautiful and talented as she is knows about bullying. But the fact is, bullying affects people from all walks of life, no matter what they look like, what they are able to do, or even how popular they are. People can be targeted for many different reasons, which creates unnecessary pain and anguish — and sadly, sometimes, suicide. Masterson, who played Leeta in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” and has enjoyed success on the independent film circuit since, has brought together a number of international organi …
