New Star Trek Series maybe heading to Netflix

10 Jun 2014

samplestar_trek

 

I caught wind of a rumor that was posted on Geek.com  that indicates that Star Trek for the small screen is not dead but maybe revived by Netflix in a brand new series. According to the article Netflix approached CBS for the rights to produce a new series of Star Trek. In what form it is not clear but from reports it would make sense since one of the most watch streaming series on Netflix and probably other streaming networks are shows from the Star Trek franchise.  As Spock would probably say "Very interesting indeed if it were to be true " . OK  all  Nerd, Geeks , Scifiologist. Get your Spock ears on and start chanting a prayer for this to come to light.  Yea I know a bit much on the corny side of a blog but you got to admit the thought of a small screen series of Trek gets the inner geek in all of us that are fans a bit giddy .
