The Next Trek

I don't have the mental or physical wherewithal to expand on this at all today, but I'd at least like to share something rather exciting for Star Trek fans such as myself who've been longing for a new TV series built on 40+ years of history, rather than a reboot with enough Star Wars in it to appeal to those who didn't get what they wanted out of the prequels, and just enough Star Trek in it to pretend like it wasn't actually a Star Wars prequel.

What I'd like to share is the news that there's the possibility of a new Star Trek TV show on the horizon. Real Star Trek. True to form, this news is a week old.

Whether or not this idea goes anywhere, I am heartened to know that people with honest-to-goodness clout in the entertainment world still care about the Star Trek universe beyond Kirk--and beyond Picard--and want to explore the countless strange new worlds that have yet to be visited there.
