The New Star Trek Series Logo Is Also Revealed
Stardate 11605.19 – CBS has finally revealed the first teaser for their new Star Trek series, which is set to start exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new life and new civilizations in January of 2017. And may we just say, it’s about time. The series was first announced back in November of 2015, and since then, the good news has started rolling in. In February of this year, it was announced that Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) would be serving as showrunner, a move applauded by many fans as Fuller began his career writing for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.
Fuller then confirmed that it was, indeed, a smart move to make him the showrunner by bringing on Star Trek veteran Nicholas Meyer as a writer and consulting producer. For those unfamiliar with his resume, he directed Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan and did uncredited rewrites on the script, helped write Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and directed and co-wrote Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. And in March, Rod Roddenberry, the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth of Roddenberry Entertainment beamed aboard the series as executive producers. And now, the teaser:
Wait, that’s it? Some zooming through space and a look at the new logo? Well, yeah. That’s probably because the new Star Trek series isn’t set to start filming in Toronto until this fall. Still, it’s a pretty spiffy logo, right? Also, did you catch the tagline? “New Crews, New Villains, New Heroes, New Worlds.” Crews, plural, would seem to imply we may be following the adventures of more than one daring starship as it treks around the stars.
CBS also took s moment to show off footage from their upcoming MacGyver reboot, starring Lucas Till as a 20 something whiz kid who uses science, random objects, and ingenuity to get out of the crazy situations that always seem to find him.
If you’re liking what you see, you’ll only have to wait for until this fall when MacGyver joins the CBS lineup.
