New 'Star Trek' Series Headed to CBS's Streaming Thing

Finally expanding their digital streaming content beyond just the usual garbage they broadcast for free already, CBS has started development on a new, online-exclusive Star Trek series for CBS All Access.

Star Trek (the J.J. Abrams one) and Into Darkness writer-producer Alex Kurtzman is executive producing the series, but unlike those prior efforts, this won't be any sort of reboot. It's said this will feature all-new characters traveling through the final frontier, which is space. There will be no Worf here. Or if there is Worf, it will be a different guy who just happens to be named Worf, due to that being a popular name in the future.

CBS has already put in a full series order, and they plan to air the first episode on their network before asking that you shell out $5.99 a month to watch subsequent episodes on CBS All Access. The premiere is set for January 2017. Or should I say, STARDATE January 2017? I should I say, I'm definitely still not ordering your service, CBS?
