Star Trek 2017 Teaser


Today CBS unveiled its first tease of the new Star Trek series they'll release in 2017. Frankly, this teaser leaves me with mixed feelings; for one, it's a little fast-paced and showy for what should be a cerebral enterprise, and two, Star Trek isn't about "heroes" and "villains," at least not primarily.

On the other hand, it looks like the name of the show will be plain old Star Trek without any qualifiers, which pleases me for nostalgia's sake if nothing else. And the "New Crews" tease lends credence to the rumour that this might be an anthology series, with a different focus each season.

Well, this is just a teaser, after all, and often the showrunners don't get much input into ad department shenanigans. I remain cautiously optimistic.
