Star Trek is getting Patrick Stewart back

Patrick Stewart To Star In New ‘Star Trek’ Series As Jean-Luc Picard On CBS All Access

It’s official — Patrick Stewart is returning to the Star Trek franchise. The acclaimed Shakespearean actor is set to headline a new Star Trek series for CBS All Access, reprising his iconic Next Generation character, Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The project, which has been rumored since the June announcement of a Star Trek universe expansion with new series, was just unveiled by Stewart himself in a surprise appearance at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention (watch the video above).

This is pretty exciting and I’m glad that it’s not a reboot. Shows need to be moving forward and not retreading familiar territory. Could you imagine if Picard went to the same planets and told the same stories? No, because he wouldn’t. He’s out, pulling down his shirt, ordering tea, exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilizations. New, new, new.

What’s not exciting is the CBS All Access bullshit. After calculating the subscription plan I’d be paying $100 for one season of Star Trek. Fuck those guys. It’d be cheaper to just buy it on DVD.
