CBS Star Trek boss Bryan Fuller assured us that official details of the new All-Access series would likely emerge around Comic-Con 2016, though a few early reports on the show’s nature and setting may not have been accurate. Not only does Fuller downplay suggestions the new series might predate The Next Generation, but also that Star Trek would go the anthology approach from season to season.
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Bryan Fuller’s upcoming CBS All-Access Star Trek series has kept coy on tangible details like setting or cast, but quietly staffed its writers with some serious heavy-hitters. Following a fan-favorite Voyager novel alum, franchise vet Joe Menosky and Heroes writer Aron Coleite will next boldly go to the new series.
One can't be aware of 'The Big Bang Theory' without knowledge of its reverence for all things (maybe some things) 'Star Trek,' but upcoming episode "The Bakersfield Expedition" might push it to the limit. The latest from our favorite eggheads sees Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz and Raj all decked out head to to toe as their favorite 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' characters, getting a lot more than they bargained for on the way to a convention.

As starved as we are for any scoop or footage of J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek 2,' it's no secret that we'd love to see 'Star Trek' back on the small screen one day. Of course, it'd be impossible to say whether any future 'Star Trek' TV series would follow the new continuity established by the Abrams films, or return to the classic universe, but at least one 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' star believes he's moving closer toward spinning off into his own series. Could it ever really happen?
