    I can't find an official source yet, but according to this article at Den of Geek....

    Kevin and Dan Hageman are the creators behind this new Star Trek animated series, the duo who have Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu and Trollhunters to their credit (and Trollhunters is really great), and who also did some work on Hotel Transylvania and The Lego Movie.

    The new Star Trek original CG-animated series will debut exclusively on Nickelodeon and will feature "a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation," according to the official press release.

    “‘Star Trek’s’ mission is to inspire generations of dreamers to build a brighter future,” said Alex Kurtzman, who is acting as an executive producer (one of many) on the project. “Dan and Kevin have crafted a story that honors its exploratory spirit in a way that’s never been done before, while the Nickelodeon team blew us away with their excitement at bringing ‘Trek’ to a younger generation around the world.”

    Not so fond of the idea of glorifying "a group of lawless teens", which basically encourages the young audience of this to become criminals.

    I think there’s a difference between “lawless” and “criminal”. I’d say lawless in this context is likely just a name for Rebelious. Much like Ezra or Ashoka in the Star Wars cartoons.

    No new details yet, just Alex Kurtzman saying:
    I can’t reveal details on that one, but it’s something that has never been done before in Star Trek.

    A little more...

    Officially announced in April, the show is developed by Emmy Award-winning brother duo Kevin and Dan Hageman. Kurtzman gave an update on the progress of the child-focused ‘toon:

    "I won’t announce the name of the Nickelodeon show, but that’s a really different show [from Lower Decks].

    That’s a show that’s for kids, younger. Full CG animation. It’s going to be incredibly cinematic. We just started seeing [story]boards this week. It looks like, wow. It’s on par with Love, Death, and Robots in terms of beauty and lighting and cinema, so it’s a a really different feel, and Nickelodeon has been wildly supportive and I think very excited to bring a new energy to TV, you know, in animation."

    It can't be worse than the last time Star Trek went animated. Not sure I would watch it if its a children's show

    Eh, TAS wasn't as horrific as that. It was lowwwwww budget, but the imagination in it was fantastic.

    Nah. Not at all. TAS may not have been fantastic but it was passable. Certainly on par for the 70's I think.
