This year should be a big one for Star Trek fans everywhere. Unfortunately, while there is plenty of good Star Trek news left and right, it looks as if there is some bad news on the horizon.
Fans of Star Trek: The Original Series have a reason to cheer, as a virtual smorgas-Borg of creator Gene Roddenberry’s original Star Trek documents have been recovered from around 200 floppy disks that haven’t been accessed in around 30 years.
Despite the recent resurgence in the popularity of Star Wars, let us never forget the other seminal sci-fi franchise: Star Trek. The Star Trek family has lost a writer who proved vital to the early years of the landmark 1966 Gene Roddenberry series.
One of the biggest franchises to be getting a reboot will be none other than Star Trek. Against all odds, the little 60s sci fi series has indeed lived long and prospered. Original series actor George Takei has some interesting throughts about what the new show means for the franchise.
Earlier this year, when Star Trek vet Leonard Nimoy died, The Big Bang Theory aired a lovely post-episode tribute to Nimoy. But now that we’re in Season 9, the creative team got the time to honor the actor in a great way.
It’s no deep space-sized surprise that CBS’ recent announcement that it’s bringing a new Star Trek series to audiences is paired with Star Trek: Renegades trying to bring more episodes to audiences.
Even if TV wasn’t in the middle of a “let’s remake the shit out of everything” boom, the concept of a new Star Trek TV show would still get a lot of attention. But is CBS getting the right kind of attention for it going straight to streaming?
Usually it takes a while for TV projects to go through the development process before a network or cable channel officially picks them up. However, there’s been a clamoring for a new Star Trek series for a while, and on Monday the “next chapter” of the Star Trek franchise has officially been announced by CBS.
As a TV network that has existed for over 70 years, NBC has expectedly and understandably brought an end to plenty of shows that fans were pissed to see leaving. Here are 13 series that were too good to ever get canceled, much less canceled so early into their runs. And yes, Matthew Perry shows up.
Koenig couldn’t have known Star Trek would become the phenomenon it did when he first signed on for the series. But Koenig’s audition for the role ended up being a little wild. Here’s what the actor had to say.

Set phasers for… Sail? Trekkies have always found new and interesting ways to express their fandom – or fanaticism – for Star Trek. With a Star Trek cruise officially happening, they will be joined by none other than Captain Kirk himself: William Shatner.
Now George Takei has admitted that he asked Roddenberry to further advocate for gays and lesbians. In a recent interview, he explained why Roddenberry stated he was unable to tackle that issue at the time.
William Shatner, reveals that one particular version of Captain James T. Kirk’s iconic Star Trek uniforms left him feeling less than commanding at times. In this case, it seems that the tightness of standard issue Starfleet command attire made his daily lunches a bit of a constricting chore.
During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, the veteran actor shared why he thinks Star Trek has remained relevant over the years and why it continues to resonate with fans today. The answer may not be what you’d expect.
