SO much looking forward to this. Well, I'll probably be dissapointed...but I'll reserve judgment until it's here and I've watched it.
It's about bloody time though. Hopefully it will be good. Star Trek is needed back on the small screen.

Ah, I was to post about it!  I'm psyched!  Can't wait to see Star Trek back on TV!  It is where Trek flourishes.  The only thing I don't like about the announcement is that it is intended for release through the CBS app subscription service!

Nothing yet on cast or any other details. I'm sure they'll be sharing those sparsely!

I heard about this on another forum.  I think it's going to be released first through CBS equivalent of Netflix.  I don't know what setting it's meant to be in(alternate timeline, TOS era, TNG era, etc.).  Definitely interested in this.  I'm guessing that ILM will be doing the SFX as well.

Of course ILM is not going to be working on a TV show. Well, it's happened before but it's not very likely. They have their hands full with movies.

Anyway, as for the show itself - while they do have a producer they don't have a showrunner yet, nor cast, so it'll probbaly be a while before we hear any definite news about what it'll all be about.

Everyone seems chuffed by the choice of show runner. It be interesting to see what time line they go by too. Bit sad to see that everything is changed in a way. I liked how the old series was all the same but I guess they need to spice it up.

I saw they may have found the new Captain too, well just got to wait and see.

I'm quite curious to see what it is they plan to do.  To me it makes sense to just set the series 100 years further into the future, after the TNG/DS9/VOY era.

I agree, no reason why the can't mix it up still and keep some of the old favourites as well. Like Trek said, set it a100 years or so in the future.
