Star Trekkin’ in to a New Series (but not where you think)

This morning news broke out via Deadline that CBS was about to announce a new Star Trek TV series. Fans didn’t have to wait long, as the Tiffany Network just announced this afternoon  the first details about the developing series. The new, as yet in subtitled, Star Trek spin off is expected to premiere in January 2017.  It will even receive a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network (perhaps following a 2017 NFL Playoff game?). but after that, fans will have to look a little harder to find the show.

Star Trek Boldly Going to Netflix? Not So Fast!

You might have heard something today about a new Star Trek series coming to Netflix.  But it seems, like a slipstream drive to get Voyager home faster, it seems that this bit of news might just be a little too good to believe.
