Star Trek News

All sorts of spinoffs making progress

If you follow me for my science fiction, you must like Star Trek, because the Kestrel was birthed out of ideas for Star Trek stories. Didn’t know that? Where have you been?
Star Trek Discovery (Wikipedia)
I found an article online with all sorts of news about Star Trek spinoffs. Discovery season 4 has started shooting, which surprised me as season 3 ended the story arc. It will be interesting to see where they go with it next.
Strange New Worlds (Paramount)
When the starship Discovery shot off into the future they left the Enterprise behind. The latest spin-off series, Strange New Worlds, will follow the adventures of Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), Mr. Spock (Ethan Peck) and Number One (Rebecca Romijn) on the USS Enterprise and is set, in essence, as a prequel to “The Original Series” before James T. Kirk took command of the Constitution-class starship.
Star Trek Picard
The second series of Picard has also gone into production at last. I can’t wait to see what they do with the new Jean Luc (I won’t say more  – spoilers).
Kalinda Vazquez has been appointed by Paramount Pictures to write a new Star Trek movie, with JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot producing, but when or if it comes to fruition remains to be seen after other failed attempts.
Star Trek Lower Decks (imdb)
There is also mention of season 2 of Prodigy with Kate Mulgrew and Lower Decks, both of which I’ve not heard of. Where have I been?
So I looked them up.
Star Trek: Prodigy is an upcoming American animated television series created by Kevin and Dan Hageman for the streaming service Paramount+ and the cable channel Nickelodeon.
Star Trek: Lower Decks is an American adult animated television series created by Mike McMahan for the streaming service CBS All Access (later rebranded as Paramount+). Lower Decks is the first animated Star Trek series since the 1970s series Star Trek: The Animated Series. It follows the low-ranking support crew of the starship U.S.S. Cerritos in the year 2380.
