CBS announced this week that Alex Kurtzman will be helming a new Star Trek series in January of 2017. The seventh series since the franchise began in 1966. Though fans were wishing for a 50th anniversary start date, the premiere will be only four months further off.
In a bold move by CBS, the full series will not air on cable television, but will be offered on CBS All Access, their paid online VOD service which is currently $5.99 per month, and may be offered commercial free for $9.99 per month according to sources. Only the premiere episode will air on parent CBS to tease the series.

My friend Marc Andrews and I would pretend to be Apollo and Starbuck, blasting Cylons with whatever stick or toy we found suitable. My blonde hair more suited me for the role of Starbuck, while Mark's dark hair was, in my current mind, the spitting image of Apollo himself. The truth, however, was that I wanted nothing more than to blast Cylons to oblivion with Apollo at my side, and Adama leading us to a Glen Larson - promised land.
