The showrunners of Star Trek: Discovery recently exited the show over allegations of verbal and emotional abuse, but if you were worried that would hinder your Star Trek intake, you need not fear. Producer Alex Kurtzman has taken over not just that series, but he’s also signed a new deal with CBS that could result in multiple new additions to the franchise. According to Varietythose include:

  • A series set at Starfleet Academy from creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. The duo most recently developed the CW’s reboot of “Dynasty” and previously created shows like “Gossip Girl” and Hulu and Marvel’s “Runaways.”
  • A limited series whose plot details are being kept under wraps.
  • A limited series based around the “Wrath of Khan” story. Khan’s full name is Khan Noonien Singh. He was famously portrayed by Ricardo Montalbán in both the original series episode “Space Seed” and again in the film “Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan.” Benedict Cumberbatch then played the character in the 2013 film “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
  • An animated series whose plot details are being kept under wraps.

As if those pitches weren’t exciting enough, The Hollywood Reporter is offering some additional details, relaying a rumor that Patrick Stewart might be onboard to reprise his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. To which we say …
