Re: Direct-to-DVD Trek movies?

The direct-to-DVD market died a few years ago, leading to the cancellation of the Stargate SG-1 finale Stargate Revolution and Atlantis swan song Extinction.

But CBS sees Trek as a tentpole franchise. We're getting movies with insane budgets (Into Darkness = $185,000,000) which are making huge money back. They're not going to make noticably inferior productions with the Trek name attached while they're making a fortune at the cinema. Animation is a maybe, however, and an animated series is a possibility if Into Darkness is as big a success as Paramount and CBS are hoping.

You may be interested in the forthcoming unlicenced Trek web movie, Star Trek: Renegades, which features several members of the Voyager cast, as well as Walter Koenig and a few others. It's the closest you're gonna get to a live-action Berman-era Trek reunion.
