|Without new Star Trek to watch, people were forced to talk,|
interact with friends, even enjoy the outdoors. I shudder to think...

Cool? Yes. But are you sitting down? Because you should sit down. Get this, there-would you please sit down? I really don't want to be responsible for your injuries when you are figuratively blown away by this unconfirmed rumor. Ready: Ok, here goes: there are supposedly as many as five count them five new Star Trek TV...uh...things in the works.
|I should probably clarify that these are five new Star Trek shows produced |
by an actual production company and not by fans with a green screen.
|The internet is, after all, 78% un-|
substantiated rumors. The rest is porn.
|"Hey, what are you talking about? I'm|
super-interested in Khan's backstory."

The rumor about that is that it might be a continuation of Star Trek: The Next Generation with Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean Luc-Picard which is what every TNG fan has been begging for ever since we sat through the objectively terrible send-off that was Star Trek: Nemesis.

his vampiric Romulan clone who also wants to destroy the Earth...for some reason.
No really, that happens in this movie. That's why I called it 'objectively terrible.'

Of course all this is like, super unconfirmed, and all we know for sure is that things are 'in development,' and that could mean next year or never. Also, if you're counting that's only four new things and Variety mentions five, but I think it's entirely possible that the under wraps mini-series and the Patrick Stewart show are the same thing. But whatever. With only one Star Trek show on TV right now, we, as a fan base are still dangerously underserved, so I for one welcome whatever Trek they want to throw our way.
|Besides, more Star Trek shows means a higher likelihood |
of me getting to play Th'rah'ssk'Kdhke'll, the heroic, yet flawed
Andorian Starfleet Captain who breaks all the rules and has
rocking' abs-which yeah, shut up, they'll add them in post.
