Star Trek is making a big return in 2017. CBS announced its plans to bring a new series to their CBS All Access streaming platform after an initial premiere on CBS.
Trekkies have expressed their excitement about the revival, and CBS is also excited about the new series. TV Series Finale previously reported that the network sees a long future for the new series.
One of the cast members from the original series is now speaking out about the series. George Takei spoke about the new Star Trek before the opening night of his play over the weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter shared his comments.
“I think it’s great. Well, we certainly have lived long for a failed television series. At the beginning of each episode, we announced that we were ‘boldly going on a five-year mission,’ but those Klingons in the programming department of NBC canceled us and ruined that five-year mission in three! Now, I do believe in the Vulcan greeting. We will live long and prosper.”
Are you excited for the new Star Trek? Tell us what you think.
I would watch The new startrek if they were on
cbs or any other channel.
I don’t know about this…..? Mission Log http://www.missionlogpodcast.com/your-star-trek-pals/ Podcaster’s John and Ken Ray Gun discussed what little they knew about this for 31 minutes. After listening – I still agree with a fellow listener – when he stated “Let’s just say you can count me in the group that truly disliked JJ (Abrahms) re-boot Trek. So I am cautious at least that someone producing this new series is connected to that lens flare festival.” These reboot movies are NOT considered Original Trek by most of us that grew up with the series.

Of course I would watch The new startrek
The show I seen 50 year’s and I think The startrek
Will do good in terms of there ratings
Of course I’ll watch it. Startrek is part of me, Being in my late 50s I’ve grown up watching all the series and loved every episode even Enterprise which was a little lame, bad actors except Trip IMO. Here’s too a long and prosperous Startrek revival 🙂
I agree with “why watch” in as far as the “streaming” goes … We already pay hefty electric bills that allow us to watch broadcast TV, cable and satellite and stuff like ROKU, HULU & Netflix not to mention the providers that “DOUBLE DIP” with the so called pay-per-view. Entertainment is one thing, GREED fits right in. My opinion, thanks …
I’ll give it a try if it’s on CBS, but I’m not going to pay CBS to view their streaming service. I pay too much already.
I think it is great that cbs in 2017 going to
air the new startrek I hope the new startrek is as
good. I hope the new startrek is something like
the original cast.
