    It's gonna be a musical.

    Working title is Khan Singhs!

    Are Star Trek fans interested in something like this? Watching Khan and followers stranded on a planet? Personally I think it sounds like a boring plot. When it comes to non Star Trek fans, I really can't imagine that they are interested in it.

    Give me a series in the Trekverse 1990's about Khan's creation and the Eugenics Wars. But being stranded on Ceti Alpha? Pass.

    Week One - They fight those damned ear creatures and loose some people. Khan cries for them.
    Week Two - They find the mother of those creatures in a cave, and it spits acid at them.
    Week Three - Everyone huddles in a shelter during a sand storm telling each other their boring ass life stories
    Week Four - They wake up in a paradise, Q has arrived, but it's really Q's adopted sister.
    Week Five - There are 20 people left alive on the planet, the mother creature attacks their shelter, kills 10 of them, but at the end of the show there are still mysteriously 15 still walking about.
    Week Six - They find the Time Guardian and go back in time, save Edith Keeler but kill Kirk, Sybock and McCoy.
    Week Seven - No repercussions at all from the timeline changing event of the previous episode, they are milling about in the desert, get lost in a storm, and have another character building episode of flashbacks and two female survivors making out to help juice up the falling ratings.

    Not that this isn't a plausible idea BUT I'm not going to believe it until we get an official announcement. Too many rumors these days that end up being debunked.

    My bad. I read it on Bleeding Cool and jumped to conclusions. Sorry. I'll change thread title and link to geekexchange who broke the news

    Doesn't bode well for their faith in DSC itself, but at least they don't intend to stop trying. I guess that can be a good thing.

    This seems like an empty rumor. I don't expect this to end up being true.

    Doesn't feel like it's a story that needs 4 hours to tell.

    I hope this isn't true. Nic Meyer is one of the main reasons I'm keeping faith that Discovery is going to be watchable.
    His energies being split of diverted to other things at such an early stage of the new show would have me worried.

    He was never meant to be anything more than a consulting producer anyway.

    Why? You're jumping to conclusions. That's like "DS9 is crap, so there's this Voyager thing".
