The future of Star Trek is on the silver screen, it seems. 

A brand-new Star Trek TV series has just been announced, titled Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The series will follow three fan-favourite characters spinning off from Star Trek: Discovery: Captain Pike, Number One and Spock. 

The new series will follow the trio, “in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.” Anson Mount, Rebecca Romjin and Ethan Peck will reprise their roles as Pike, Number One and Spock respectively, having previously appeared as the characters in Star Trek: Discovery. 

In charge of the project are Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard writers and producers Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. The show has been ordered straight-to-series for CBS All Access - one of the many Star Trek projects headed to the streaming service.

Also in development are an adult-oriented Star Trek animated series titled Star Trek: Lower Decks, a Section 31-based series starring Michelle Yeoh, and an animated children’s series for Nickelodeon. 

Counting in Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Discovery, that’s six Star Trek TV shows in total. Talk about an embarrassment of riches!
