Calm Down, That ‘Star Trek’ TV Show Thing is a Baseless Rumor

So I go take the weekend off from the internet, and immediately come back to find out that the internet was rife with rumors of a new Star Trek TV series. I was excited for about five seconds, until I started to actually read the articles.

It all goes back to a Latino Review article – which pretty much just says Paramount is thinking about a Star Trek series — and then drags up a bunch of old rumors and out of date information to justify and explain what’s happening.

But here’s the thing – it’s not.

I mean, sure – Paramount and CBS are probably always thinking about tossing the money making franchise back on the air, but that doesn’t mean they are willing to commit money to it. Or people. Or are willing to hire any of the people listed in the Latino Review article. The site io9 has a great breakdown too.

Sorry kids, ain’t happening.
