    Interesting, I wonder why CBS is putting on a streaming channel instead of the main network? It's gotta be for $.

    Probably because they want people to use the streaming channel and they need something high profile to draw them in..

    Well, Paramount used "Enterprise" to launch a a network, if I recall. I guess CBS wants to do the same thing, but with a pay service.

    I wonder how it will do. I'm certainly not going to subscribe for one show alone. I might wait till they have a complete season and subscribe for a month to binge it, but not on an ongoing basis.

    The article says the new series is not related to the upcoming movie, but that could mean several things.

    It was actually Voyager that was used. Enterprise aired, for the most part, during the last years of the network.

    As for this series, it may be one I don't watch because of it only being on CBS Access which I don't do and somebody from the J.J. Abrams movies is involved, Alex Kurtzman. I know that doesn't automatically mean it will be set in the J.J. Abrams universe but I'll wait and see. If it's not set in the J.J. Abrams universe then I may check it out but it would have be available on DVD in order for me to do that.

    Please be the 25th century already. They really should tackle that.

    Yeah, that's very unclear. It could mean Prime universe, but it could also mean JJverse but removed from the film adventures of the Enterprise -- maybe another ship on another frontier at the same time, or even a nuTNG to the reboot films.

    I'd actually rather it was set either in the late 23rd or early 24th Centuries. I got tired of all the mega tech in Voyager and the later movies. It just felt like they could do anything.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    I know its not going to happen but if its set in the Prime universe I would love to see post Dominion War Alpha Quadrant.

    I know most people didn't like the enterprise Era, but I'd live to see the beginnings of the Federation.

    If it not set post Dominion, post Voyager, I probably won't watch. I suspect a substantial number of star trek fans will be joining me.

    If they go JJ Abrams universe that leaves CBS reliant on film goers, well I wish them luck going down that path because I suspect they are going to need it.

    Im not worried it streaming only, Netflix and Amazon have shown that high quality programs can survive in the streaming world.

    I have no problem with the "Enterprise" era, I just didn't like the 2 year Xindi story arc. Bored me to death.
    Anyway, given choice, I'd like to see a few thousand years in the future. I seem to recall a scene at the end of some Trek property that was set far in the future, that has them at the edge of our galaxy, looking outward. Pick it up there would be good.

    Cool!

    Streaming service - not so cool.
    But it'll probably float around the interwebz at some point.

    Kurtzman is bringing in the money - I wouldn't worry too much about any creative decisions. Producers and executive producers deal with the money-side of things.
