With what we currently know about Star Trek 2017 and reading through the numerous threads here on the forums, I've been doing some far-fetched what if speculating and thought I'd post some for the fun of it. What if... The first 13 episode, serialized story, multiple crew style season is actually the groundwork for a 2017-2018 multi-series expanded Star Trek universe by CBS. Let's say that with a 13 episode series, they decide to introduce us to five different ships (or whatever the setting may be) and crews (or staff,personal, groups, etc as the case may be). The 13 episodes could be broken down to the two hour premiere, then five one hour episodes visiting each of the ships and crews (or whatever the case may be), then a second round of five one hour episodes revisiting each, and then a two part finale episode bringing them all together and sending them off again. each with their own full season series in 2017-2018. What if... The same scenario as above with the difference being that the first season is a test to see which setting and cast are the best received by viewers to decide which one (or ones) will make the leap to a dedicated series in 2017-2018. What if... The single story multi-crew aspect of season one is to introduce something in early Trek history that grows as we progress through the established timeline to finally culminate in the season one finale to launch us into a season two set post Voyager. Like I said, this is all just far-fetched what if speculation for the fun of it. Care to share yours?
