Y'all are super nice.
By TrekBBS standards, we are.

Orci said here that he has not officially pitched a series to CBS - yet.

I have mentioned to CBS the idea of a Star Trek series and they are interested in it, but they would have to coordinate with Paramount and they would have to coordinate with Bad Robot. It is something we we are trying to figure out. If we can figure out a beautiful timing for it, it is something we would all love to do. It is tricky, with multiple chefs in that kitchen. It is something many of us are thinking about and I want to see one too.
The mention of "beautiful timing" makes me think "launching the fall after Abrams' third movie debuts" is what he means. Backing up further, "official pitch to CBS to coincide with news of big box office for Abrams' second movie" is the most beautiful way to kick the process off, and leave plenty of time for developing a series and third movie in parallel.

That is, if they have the bandwidth, with all the other projects to juggle. If not, maybe they announce the series with the third movie debut and launch afterwards. Not as good on the PR front but still viable, assuming all three movies are hits.

But Orci has dibs'ed Trek now. CBS won't kick him aside and go with someone else when someone with maximum credbility like that as alread put a stake in the ground. And he might very well have made his informal not-a-pitch in order to put a stake in the ground, just in case Seth McFarlane or Bryan Fuller started to get big ideas.

And everyone wants to avoid stepping on anyone's toes. The players are CBS, Paramount and Bad Robot. They will figure out the details of a TV series between them and odds are slight that they will let anyone else in the sandbox, since it's a crowded sandbox already. I just hope we don't get Trek-by-Committee out of this.
I think the "Coordinate with Paramount" part, is ensuring Paramount won't want to continue with Abrams Trek after the third movie, and/or that a Trek Series wouldn't be counterproductive to their plans after the Abrams Trilogy, if they keep it a trilogy.

Bad Robot will most likely be scheduling coordination, and CBS will be the willingness to part with the investment, based upon how the Paramount and Bad Robot line up.

But, yea, I definitely think starting to put it together after a successful opening of Into Darkness to be launched right after the 3rd movie opens, is the most likely best "Hot Iron" to strike with

Well, that's one opinion.

And probably a minor one at that.

At least Bryan Fuller's actually written a couple episodes, and decent episodes at that.

The thought of Seth MacFarlane being a writer for Trek, however, gives me a shiver...

I also get a shiver of joy every time I hear that the executive producer of the follow-up series to PBS's "Cosmos" [LINK] wants to write/produce a new Trek series as well.

I don't know?

He has the advantage of never having worked on Trek before and is obviously a huge fan based on all the nods it gets on his shows.

Having someone with those credentials could be a blessing or a curse...

Isn't Brannon Braga also working on that Cosmos reboot for Fox?

TV shows have so many Producers these days, that if you put them all end-to-end, I doubt anyone would really care where this analogy was going...

Source? Because I've yet to find a single article that links his name to the production.

I found one relating to his involvement in writing a post-Nemesis TNG comic book miniseries.

Q: What else are you working on?

BRAGA: I'm working on a reboot of Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" with Seth MacFarlane and Ann Druyan for Fox. It's 13 episodes. We're in the writing phase, or I should say the rewriting phase. It's actually kind of a dream. I'd never done a nonfiction piece for television. It's been really challenging but also kind of a dream come true. Both Seth and I were huge fans of the original, so to be working with Ann Druyan, Carl's wife, is amazing. The plan is to put that on somewhere in early to mid-2014. A long way off. But it's a massive project with a lot of visual effects, so it's going to take time.
