Re: David Foster reveals his plans for a new Star Trek series?
He was "preparing" to pitch his idea to CBS on August of 2011. It's now January of 2013, and no further information has been heard about it. But the thing is, the original universe is done. It's highly unlikely CBS has any intention whatsoever in going that route.
It's not so much that the original universe is done that it's the Rick Berman-era
of Trek is done.
A new Trek series could be set in the original universe, the Abramsverse, or all-new continuity altogether, since it'll likely be produced by someone new with his or her own idea of how Trek should return to TV.
