Alex Kurtzman is walking that fine line of making Star Trek that both the back in the day fans and the new Trekkie fans can enjoy.
In an interview, Kurtzman stated that everybody, including the older folks, must be incorporated with the new generation. There has to be respect for both and yet it must also forge new ground. The plan is to have several shows.
Kurtzman stated the timeline when it comes to making a new Star Trek show. It takes basically 12 months from writing to completed show, similar to animation. The planning begins two or three years before the writing process.
Star Trek: The Picard Show
Many fans are very interested in Star Trek: The Picard Show and just how Jean-Luc Picard has grown. Plenty has happened to Jean-Luc Picard in the intervening years. He had to deal with some old things and some old things. Both things come together and he’s made choices that he’s not really feeling great about. Fans will find out what happened to cause him to leave Star fleet.
Kurtzman stated also that it would be remiss to say we would see Spock on Discovery again. We’ve clearly jumped so far into the future that it doesn’t make sense. Though, the notion of bringing Rebecca, Anson, Ethan, and the Enterprise back, is feasible. Everyone loved it so much. To come up with a way to do that is something that we’re thinking about all the time.
“The fans have been heard. One of the most satisfying things is to see how truly the fans have embraced Number One, Pike, Spock, and the Enterprise. The notion of getting to tell more stories with them would be delightful for old fans, new fans, and anyone who is even interested in any and all things Star Trek.
