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.

**** you and eat shit Gifhorse. The early DS9 / Voyager uniforms are slightly better than the Discovery uniforms. And that's not saying much.

Also it doesn't jive with the consistency of costuming as per show 'canon.'

It could be good. It could tell new stories. If you had the right people with the right intentions doing the job.

Star Wars is fucked from the beginning. They've already told all the stories they can possibly tell, or at least flesh things out in a way that can't be predicted.

You got a light side. You got a dark side. You got a rebellion. You've got an empire. Both of them clash.

Whatever betrayals or conversions or shit beyond that is just storytelling that could be predicted by using a storyboard matrix. There are only so many possibilities.

That's why Star Wars needs to die. Trek can and should keep going, but they keep fucking it up.

Discovery is legit if you don't dwell too much on some of the more hamfisted meta-commentary they interject into the show.

A few days ago a fan "insider" video popped up on my YouTube claiming that Discovery may actually be dead despite the earlier renewal, because Netflix withdrew funding for it and CBS basically isn't willing to finance both it and Picard. Also, Picard won't have much of a budget, so don't expect to see any other familiar characters from NG since they can't afford to bring them onboard. I have no idea if it's legit or not, and couldn't find the video again. It's out there somewhere if you care enough to look for it.

As I've stated elsewhere, IMO the best part of Discovery was Pike, Spock and the Enterprise, and now that they're gone I really don't give a crap if it continues or not.

Still wish the CBS pricks would pull their heads out of their asses and give us a Pike-based Star Trek on regular TV, or sell the rights to somebody who's not going to keep fucking it up, but neither is going to happen.

I may be remembering incorrectly, but I believe Star Trek as a franchise was worth $4 billion 10 years ago...

Doesn't cost $4Bn to produce a pilot.

I changed it.

Never mind. I tried unsuccessfully to change it. If a mod would please change the thread title to "Star Trek Picard" I'd appreciate it.

I have a hard time believing that the new show will have a budget so low that they can't afford Gates McFadden and the guy who played Howling Mad Murdock on the A Team.

Shit, Marina Sirtis did a one-off on the Orville last season and didn't even get special guest star billing. Not sure anybody even realized it was her. Can't cost that much.

They're still supposedly all besties. Seems like they could probably get them as guest stars on the cheap as a favor to him. Also, new appearances would probably increase conventions sales for their stuff.
