Two new Star Trek Series might be coming to the small screen.
 
It look like a new Star Trek series is being work on. Actually two Star Trek series are being work on. This one: http://sciencefiction.com/2012/02/06...han-you-think/ and the one Micheal Dorn is working on, call Star Trek: Captain Worf.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for either of these to ever see the light of day.

CBS' Les Moonves probably has a desk full of written proposals for new Star Trek shows that he's using to line his birdcages with.

1. Both of these ideas have been talked about here before, so this is not "new."

2. The first link you posted is 7 months old. Never mind the fact that David Foster has no chance in hell of creating a new Trek series, as has already been stated in previous discussion about this topic.

3. While Dorn has a better chance than Foster of getting something off the ground (like, a 1% better chance), that article is mistaken about a new "series." What Dorn was proposing was a one-off TV movie that would go direct-to-DVD, not a new series. And I'm not holding my breath either.

I like Worf. But Michael Dorn has been in nearly three hundred episodes of Trek and four movies. It's time he find a different acting gig.

That's the problem. I think I can count on one hand the number of Trek actors from TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT combined who have had successful acting careers post-Trek. Without Worf, Dorn has nothing. Actually, he had nothing before Worf, as well.

There have been plenty of chatter from people with a track record who are intersted in doing a series - Fuller, Singer, Seth McFarlane and Robert Orci by my last count. Have I missed anyone? ;)

I wouldnt be at all surprised if one of their projects ends up being funded as a joint venture between CBS and Netflix (because CBS doesn't own an outlet that makes sense for Star Trek, but Les Moonves is buddying up to Netflix), announced after the success of the next movie (assuming it is a success, which seems highly likely), to debut around the time of the third movie's release.

But it wont have anything to do with Worf or involve anyone like David Foster, who has no credibility. Sure the guy has an idea for a series, so what, everyone in this forum has twenty ideas for a series, why don't they just turn the show over to us? :rommie:

I can imagine...

To be honest, i think our best bet for a good Star Trek series would be to wait until JJ Abrams has finished with the last season of Fringe, and then maybe he'll be interested in heading one up...

That's not true at all. Before TNG, he had a supporting role on CHiPs for three seasons. And during and since his Trek years, he has had an extensive, highly successful career as a voice actor in animation, including Gargoyles (Coldstone), Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys (the main villain Nebula, opposite Babylon 5's Jerry Doyle as the title hero), Cow and Chicken and its spinoff I Am Weasel (as the title character of the latter), Superman: TAS (Kalibak and Steel), Justice League (Kalibak), Duck Dodgers (all the Martian robots), Ben 10 (Dr. Vicktor), The Super Hero Squad Show (Ronan the Accuser), and many others. He also played the US President in Heroes and currently has a recurring role as Beckett's therapist on Castle. He's had a very successful and prolific acting career; it's just been built more on his voice than his face.

I can't see him returning to Worf, though. On Castle he looks much older and much, much thinner than I remember him being, so I'm not sure he could convincingly play Worf anymore. (Unless it were an animated movie...)

While I'm not snubbing his voiceover work (and I should know, since I narrate books on tape for a living), I was referring to on-screen roles since Trek in which he was as prominent as he was as the character of Worf. But you're right; I shouldn't have brushed his career off so harshly.

Im getting the impression Worf is having a tough time letting go.

He could play Ambassador Worf, older now and having trouble letting go of her badass youth as a Klingon warrior. That's a reasonable basis for a character. The real problem there is, Worf is associated with old pre-Abrams Trek, the stuff that flopped, and CBS will want to align itself with the movies and recent success.

Worf having a sex change is reasonable development?

Let me play Sigmund Freud and ask, what is this obsession with sex? I watch the show for science fiction, not for sex, what gives?
