Producer Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) has revealed in Entertainment Weekly that he's very keen to bring Star Trek back to television screens and that he's discussed the possibility with director/producers Bryan Singer (X-Men) and J.J. Abrams (Star Trek-film). Said Fuller---
"Bryan and I are big fans of Trek and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it," he admitted.
"And I'm sure it would be wisely under JJ Abrams's purview of what happens. He's the guardian of Trek right now."
Prior to producing Pushing Daisies, Fuller wrote scripts for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager. Nothing will likely happen till after Star Trek 2 is released but the track record of those involved leads me to believe that this is a real possibility.
The sequel to J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot will hit theaters May 17, 2013.
Star Trek is an American science fiction entertainment franchise created by Gene Roddenberry. The core of Star Trek is its six television series: The Original Series, The Animated Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. The franchise also includes eleven feature films, dozens of games, hundreds of novels as well as a themed attraction in Las Vegas (opened in 1998 and closed in September 2008) and at least two traveling museum exhibits of props. Beginning with the original television series and continuing with the subsequent films and series, the franchise has become a cult phenomenon, initiated the creation of the fully functional constructed language Klingon, and spawned many pop culture references.
