I guess this is official. http://www.startrek.com/article/new-...s-january-2017

Let the speculation begin!

Given the people behind the current movies are involved in the TV streaming series, I in all likelihood won't be watching.

It's not even going to be shown on real TV?

If that's true, then it certainly gives me some skepticism. It does seem like television is evolving toward streaming though, so maybe the new Star Trek is boldy going where few TV series have gone before.

I'd love a return of Star Trek to television.

I'd be less "suspicious" if it was Netflix. Or Amazon.

Gonna suck if there are tons of streaming services. That's not gonna save cord cutters any money.

TNG and DS9 also didn't air on "real" television (as defined at the time)...

It was more real than streaming. Syndicated TV had been a thing for many many years

Only the premier episode will be available on the traditional CBS, the rest of the series is only available through a subscription to CBS All Access. No thank you CBS.

One year too late for the 50th. You'd think they could have started a little earlier.

That was my first reaction. At the very least, they should offer it on HBO (also owned by CBS). As a streaming-only offering, its DOA afaic.

The cost savings from cord-cutting was only going to stem from an early adoption bonus. Eventually, the market would have equalized things (shifting cost from cable television subscriptions to a split between streaming services and broadband Internet subscriptions). However, if, in addition, there are myriad different streaming services, then as you indicate, it is probably going to be even worse - perhaps cord-cutting will eventually cost more than what linear cable would have cost if all there was throughout was linear cable. By then, though, we might be able to expect that the tumult of cord-cutting would have its impact, maybe resulting in linear cable as we know it now being effectively gone.

The very next line after what you quoted says....

"The next chapter of the Star Trek franchise will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International. "
I would say that means it will be on TV. Not sure how it can both be on TV and exclusively streaming. There is info missing there. Perhaps it streams first and week later it comes on TV. I don't know.

There is no info about the show itself. I want to know the basic setup.

Sounds to me that it'll be on TV outside the US. I guess CBS doesn't know about torrents, lol.

But not in the United States. (CBS Studios International does not distribute programming domestically.)

It doesn't specifically say but perhaps this means repeats will air on the CBS TV network that we all know as our local CBS TV station?

Plans can change in the year-plus before this thing debuts, but I think the intent right now is clear: this will be on CBS's subscription streaming platform only (except for the premiere, as announced). Star Trek is a big name and they are going to try to use it to drive eyeballs (and dollars, more specifically) to the service. No need to overthink it.

But streaming today is far, far more prestigious now than syndication was then. TNG was one of the very first first-run syndication shows; today, streaming shows win Emmys.

So you wait until the whole season is released, subscribe for a month or 2 to binge watch, then cancel? Or does it not work that way?

I don't think anything could gut (future) streaming subscriptions spawned by the availability of a prestige series like this than turning around less than three years later and broadcasting it OTA. How many series went from cable or streaming to OTA?

I do imagine that the series, especially if it fails, will appear on Syfy or in syndication a couple of years later, cut to bits to fit in extra commercials, and rerun five times through within a year.

I wonder about this. HBO apparently still allows folks to watch its original series, even from the last year or two, on demand. How much longer until pay channels have minimum subscriptions to preclude that?

More than that... a lot of shows have the entire run available, even shows that are long gone.

It doesn't say anything what it's about. Is it the Worf series?

While the TNG fanboy in me would get a kick out of it, I think the chances of a Worf series are somewhere between none and zero. I would be very surprised if it's a continuation of any of the previous shows.

I would guess it probably will revolve around the new universe created by the newer movies.

Especially since that writer is involved.

So, it's Enterprise with Kirk and Spock and all that?

no idea, I mean it will probably be of similar style etc, personally I doubt it will feature any of the enterprise crew since they are in movies now, so maybe another team / ship / story?

Definitely not Worf or any of the other characters

The article specifically says it's not that.

My guess is all new crew set slightly after Next Gen (50 years tops).

It says it's not related to the new movie, but that doesn't mean that the show won't feel like the new movies.
