http://www.startrek.com/article/new-star-trek-series-premieres-january-2017 I'm not too sure about this. Whilst it is undoubtably one of the most enduring franchises of all time (723 episodes of TV, 13 films and a continuous presence on TV from 1987-2005) I don't know what place Star Trek has in the contemporary Sci Fi realm. Shows that have been successful in the last decade or so have been things like Battlestar, and tend to be dark as hell. The most recent Trek series, Enterprise, was a catastrophe largely because it tried to be 'darker' and the fans turned off in droves. Also it was a prequel and did its best to ruin 40 years of established canon by changing the history of the franchise. Also the articles seem to suggest it won't be connected to the JJ Abrams reboot films, meaning it's not a common cinematic universe. So will it pick up where Voyager left off or be its own new thing entirely? Either way, I really don't know if it can work the way that it used to.
