A CBS network show is never something I would be excited about watching.

I'm not really sure why they think people will pay for a streaming channel just for this show. No one watched the last few series and they were for free.

Even if the show is good it won't last because it wont make enough money. Its doomed unless they are willing to take a loss to have it as a centerpiece for the service.

Setting up a online service when the main demo for your network can't get on the internet unless their grandson is there to do it for them seems like a winning model.

I'm optimistic, but if it follows Abrams-Trek, I'm out.

Yesterday we heard from "Hannibal" showrunner Bryan Fuller about the production schedule and tone of his upcoming "Star Trek" TV series for CBS' All Access streaming service. One thing he didn't touch upon though is the question that all Trekkies want to know - WHEN is the series set.

Specifically will this take place in the old timeline or the alternate J.J. Abrams film one, and in either case what time period will it be set in? Mid-late 23rd century (Kirk), mid-late 24th century (Picard), between those eras, before them, after them, etc.

Fuller seems to be keeping that information under his hat, but speaking with Moviefone this week, he did shoot down some of the rumors that have gone online about it:

"I mean, it's funny. I've read that we're [set] before 'Next Generation,' after '[Star Trek VI: The] Undiscovered Country,' which is false. I've read that it's an anthology show, which is not accurate. So it's interesting to see those suggestions, and seeing the truth mixed in with them and going like, 'Oh, they got that part right…' But it's sort of on the truth-o-meter on PolitiFacts. It's sort of like some truth, and a lot of like, 'No - pants on fire! That's not true.'

One of the things that is exciting for me is that we are telling a 'Star Trek' story in a modern way. We're telling a 13-chapter story in this first season. It's nice to be able to dig deep into things that would have been breezed passed if we were doing episodic and had to contain a story to an episode."

Fuller also indicates we'll see multiple crews in the storyline and we'll 'eventually' see some familiar characters. The series is slated to go into production in September.
