Good news everyone! According to Birth. Movies. Death. (It’s still so awkward to spell that name out in full...) Bryan Fuller’s new Star Trek serial might be set in the prime universe instead of the alternate reality featured in the current movie series.
This would allow both the TV and movie teams to work independently without having to bump up against one another in terms of world building, which is something that was discussed heavily yesterday on io9's Marvel Cinematic Universe write up.
The BMD write up also mentions that the show could be an anthology, with each season serving as a single, complete story. The first season, at least, will be set before The Next Generation.
The new show is set to air on CBS’s upcoming streaming service. None of it is confirmed by the studio yet, so keep a salt shaker close by.
I’m so excited!
