Finally, a new Star Trek TV series is in the works. It will start airing next January on CBS All Access as the first original series on the streaming platform. Now the logo for the series has been revealed, along with a very early teaser trailer. The trailer features no actual footage from the show, because the show hasn’t even started filming yet, but could give you a rough idea of the tone and look of the show.

Alex Kurtzman, who co-wrote the first two rebooted Star Trek movies and co-created modern sci-fi TV classic Fringe, is executive producing the new series along with Bryan Fuller (acclaimed creator of Pushing Daisies and Hannibal who also worked on Star Trek: Voyager back in the day). Nicholas Meyer, the writer/director of fan favorites Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, is also involved in some capacity.

The iconic space franchise started in 1966 and has spawned four subsequent TV series and 12 movies, but has been off the air for a decade, since the series finale of the poorly received Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005. Since then Paramount has put its focus behind the rebooted Star Trek movies (a third one, Star Trek Beyond, is due out this summer, in conjunction with Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary). The new Star Trek series will not feature the characters/actors from the current Star Trek movies and will feature all new characters. It’s unclear if it’s set in the continuity of the five original series and the original movies or that of the new movies.

While the first episode will air on CBS, after that the show will air exclusively on CBS All Access, CBS’ video on demand streaming service that requires a $5.99 monthly fee. Let’s hope the show is good enough to warrant fans to pay for yet another streaming service. Certainly Star Trek belongs on TV as much as it does on the big screen and hopefully they can recreate the magic of the original series and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
