CG series coming to Nickelodeon is just the tip of the asteroid

Nickelodeon will host a new CG-animated Star Trek series that follows “a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation.”

Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters, The LEGO Movie) are developing the still-untitled series. Star Trek veterans Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry (son of Trek creator Gene Roddenberry) and Trevor Roth are joining the Hagemans as executive producers.

“Star Trek’s mission is to inspire generations of dreamers to build a brighter future,” Kurtzman said in a statement. “Dan and Kevin have crafted a story that honors its exploratory spirit in a way that’s never been done before, while the Nickelodeon team blew us away with their excitement at bringing Trek to a younger generation around the world.”

The Nickelodeon show is actually the second animated Star Trek project; the previously announced Lower Decks will debut on CBS All Access sometime in the next couple of years, and be geared towards a more adult audience with content from the creative minds behind the Cartoon Network’s risque-er Rick & Morty.

CBS All Access’ Jean-Luc Picard live-action series started filming this past week with returning star Patrick Stewart, and Star Trek: Discovery just ended its second season by warping ahead to the 32nd Century after exploring the 23rd’s Klingon-Federation war, Mirror Universe and Christopher Pike’s “Number One” USS Enterprise.

A live-action Discovery spinoff focusing on the morally questionable Section 31 division of Starfleet, starring Michelle Yeoh, is also in development.

Star Trek: The Animated Series, a cartoon follow-up to the 1966-69 original Star Trek with many of the original actors voicing their roles and others, once aired in reruns on Nickelodeon.

This doesn’t even touch on the ongoing series of original novels and audiobooks set in the Star Trek universe.

As if that all weren’t enough, the long-awaited unofficial Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary and retrospective What We Left Behind is finally ready for prime time, with a big-screen premiere planned for May 13.
