Star Trek 2017
After a decade of waiting, we're finally getting new Star Trek on television! Set to premiere in early 2017, the as-yet-unnamed series will be helmed by Bryan Fuller and created for CBS All Access—and it could change the way we think about what it means to be a Star Trek TV series. How many seasons will there be? How many episodes per season? Where on the timeline will it fall? In which universe will it take place? There are so many questions and very few answers. But that doesn't stop Trek.fm from speculating! Here are a collection of episodes in which we discuss the forthcoming seventh outing for Star Trek on television.
