Parents’ basements everywhere were filled with the sounds of celebration after news spread about a NEW Star Trek TV series coming in 2017.
CBS has announced that the new show, which comes 12 years after the end of Star Trek: Enterprise, will be guided by Alex Kurtzman, the man who co-wrote the films Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness(2013). No word on the plot or the cast yet.
But there’s a catch!
Only the premiere episode will be aired on TV in the United States. That’s it.
If you wanted to watch the show in its entirety, well, you’ll have to subscribe to CBS All Access, the network’s subscription streaming video service that was launched in 2014.
It’ll cost you $5.99 a month (unfortunately this streaming service does not get you NFL coverage).
Viewers in Canada will likely get access to the show via Netflix, Amazon, Crave, Shomi, or a similar streaming service once a deal has been worked out.
If you’re a devoted Trekkie, will you spend the extra coin to access this show?
