The Return of Captain Picard?

Star Trek: The Next Generation Reboot With Patrick Stewart Reportedly in Development

Rumors of the Picard-centric reboot come amid Alex Kurtzman extending his CBS contract for a planned expansion of the Star Trek TV universe.



According to a THR article, there are unconfirmed rumors that CBS TV Studios is developing a Star Trek reboot starring Patrick Stewart in which he would reprise his The Next Generation role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. According to THR's sources, Alex Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman are attached to the potential reboot. Not only is this an unconfirmed project, but THR's sources also say that the deal is far from complete and might not happen. Still, this would be huge news for Star Trek fandom—however you might feel about a Picard-centric reboot.

The rumors of the Picard reboot come amidst Kurtzman renewing his overall deal with CBS Television Studios, extending his contract by five years. This will keep him in partnership with the studio through 2023, for a reported $5 million per year.

Kurtzman was recently made sole showrunner of Star Trek: Discovery following the dismissal of previous co-showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg who left amidst reports of bullying behavior in the writers room. Goldsman, who served as an executive producer on Season 1 of Discovery, also left the show, reportedly due to a clash with the writing staff in terms of management style and personality, so it's interesting that he is still attached to the potential Picard-centric reboot.

In addition to his work on Star Trek: Discovery, Kurtzman's extended deal with CBS Television Studios will include an expansion of the Star Trek franchise on the small screen, including the development of new series, miniseries, and other content, including animation.

While this generally seems like good news for the Star Trek universe, it may also be disappointing, depending on what kind of Star Trek fan you are. While the move represents a reinvestment in the Star Trek TV universe, Kurtzman is not known for critical success. Previously, he has co-written the scripts for Transformers, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. More recently, he directed and co-wrote The Mummy. Not exactly the kind of nuanced science fiction writing Star Trek has, at its best, historically represented.

More news on the expanded Star Trek TV universe as we hear it.

It seems like there is something weird about the Star Trek rights, but nobody knows what the terms are. There's no third party though, Viacom owns Paramount, so it's just CBS vs Paramount.

There was a thing that came out that the Enterprise in Discovery had to be at least 25% different from the original for legal reasons, so maybe if it's too similar you have to get approval from the other company? It's weird, because CBS owns the trademarks and controls merchandising, so the rights aren't really split down the middle at all. Maybe the 25% thing was just something they said to get the nerds off their back. After all, they didn't have to change the Vulcan makeup.
so it was legal reasons that they ****ed up the look of Klingons?

Maybe? I'd lean toward 'no' since they didn't have to change the Vulcans, but maybe it's different because the classic Klingon makeup first appeared in TMP.

The Vorta cloning facility in the Alpha Quadrant was destroyed. The female Changeling made lamented to Garak, after he had killed the final Weyoun, "I wish you hadn't done that. That was Weyoun's last clone."

But Combs would most definitely play some race of Alien. Perhaps we will finally find out what the Breen look like.

Looks like it’s officially official. From Paramounts Facebook page.

Non-canon novel sez that the Breen are actually four races as a retcon to all the conflicting shit about the Confederacy that popped up throughout the canon.

This is going to be ****ing awesome. So many places they can take this. So many ways to flesh out the character and make him deeper.

I hope we get Worf on the show, too.

The rest of the cast is almost completely melted.

I wonder, then, if the animated series is going to be based on the Star Trek countdown graphic novel. This would allow Brent Spiner to return despite his having aged out of, physically, playing a near immortal android on screen.

I know Frakes gave up acting long ago, but he NEEDS to make at least a brief appearance as Captain Riker of the USS Titan.

If humankind was able to doll up a coked-out senior citizen Carrie Fisher for two goddamn Star Wars movies, they can get Frakes to sit in a goddamn chair and talk to people on a ****ing viewscreen.

The guy has morphed into Orson Welles. I'm not sure you can rehabilitate this.



Now, Levar Burton on the other hand...

So I think I understand this now. Old Viacom owned Star Trek. Old Viacom merged with Old CBS to form New CBS. Eventually New CBS spun New Viacom off from itself, but it'a a new company and doesn't include all the pieces Old Viacom brought into the merger. New Viacom gets Paramount, but ownership of Star Trek stays with CBS. Paramount does get the right to continue distributing the ten movies.

Eventually Paramount wants to make new Star Trek movies so they license it from CBS. For some stupid reason this licensing deal includes a provision that what they make has to be 25% different. Then CBS decides they want to have Star Trek TV shows. But instead of producing it themselves, they go back to Paramount to do it for them, under the terms of the original licensing deal. So even though it's for CBS, who own Star Trek, it's produced by Paramount, who have to abide by this retarded 25% deal.

Great, so we can expect the same out of the new Picard show.

That pretty much means Michael Dorn ain't making any guest appearances. You can't give him the Discovery treatment and still maintain that he's the same Klingon.
