Star Trek TV show (2017) will have next-day streaming on Netflix

In a surprising twist, Netflix will offer new Star Trek TV series episodes the day after they’re broadcast on television in the U.S. This marks a pretty big deviation from how Netflix typically operates, though recently we’ve seen some similar deals come into play. Netflix will make the new Star Trek TV series available to subscribers across 188 countries, with it having the distinction of being the “exclusive premiere home” for the show in all of those countries except the US and Canada.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Hands-on

At E3 last week, there was no shortage of VR games on the show floor. Many of the games that were being shown off were single-player experiences. However, there was one multiplayer game that really caught my attention. Ubisoft was showing off a Star Trek game that would finally let us command a star ship, and we’d get to do it in virtual reality.

Star Trek Beyond trailer uses Beastie Boys music

Star Trek Beyond trailer uses Beastie Boys music

The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond has been revealed, and it's a good time having ho-down of action. This isn't going to be a movie based on ships in space so much as it's going to be about the Enterprise sort of... getting swarmed and crashing. That'll happen within the first half of the movie, so it's no spoiler! Also this trailer features the Beastie Boys. That's strange, if you consider the fact that MCA, (may he RIP), stipulated in his will that "what you get is what you see, and you wont see me in the advertisiiing."

New Star Trek TV show launching on CBS and All Access

New Star Trek TV show launching on CBS and All Access

This morning CBS announced that an all-new (not reruns) Star Trek TV series will be launching in January of 2017. That's a long ways off. But it will have Alex Kurtzman, Co-Writer and Producer of the Blockbuster Films "Star Trek" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" as Executive Producer, so that'll be neat. This TV show is thus far just called "Star Trek", but may have a different name by the time it launches. We're crossing our fingers for a whole new era with callbacks - rather than the oddity that was Enterprise.
