CBS recently announced that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager were going to be reissued on DVD, leaving many fans to wonder why these shows wouldn’t join the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Enterprise on Blu-ray.

Thanks to a new interview though, we now know exactly why these shows will probably never get proper HD restorations.

It’s been a rough voyage for Star Trek: Discovery, but cameras are now rolling on CBS’ grand return to the greatest science fiction series of all time, and I’m ready to start feeling optimistic. And if the goal of this new video, which showcases footage of sets, uniforms, and concept art from the show, was to get me unbearably and unreasonably pumped that another proper Star Trek series is on the way…mission accomplished.

The Star Trek fan film Axanar is moving forward again. Axanar Productions raised $1 million via crowdsourcing to produce a feature-length fan film with production values beyond your typical fan project. After the movie had started shooting, CBS and Paramount filed a lawsuit, claiming the fan film violates the rights of their intellectual property. Despite directors J.J. Abrams and Justin Lin urging the studio to drop the lawsuit, it continued, but it’s now settled.

When it was revealed that Star Trek: Discovery was going to take place a decade before the events of Captain James T. Kirk’s original five-year mission on board the U.S.S. Enterprise, many fans wondered if that meant we’d see some classic characters pop up to say hello. Now, we know that the answer is yes. The Vulcan ambassador Sarek, better known as the father of Spock, will have a role on the show and he’ll be played by James Frain.

Before Star Trek Beyond hit theaters, JJ Abrams revealed that he had an idea for the fourth film in his new series of Star Trek movies that would see Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as George Kirk. Days later, Paramount confirmed the development, announcing that Hemsworth had signed on for the new film.

A little over a month ago, Bryan Fuller stepped down as showrunner on CBS’s upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series, resulting in the internet making a sound akin to a balloon slowly deflating. After all, Star Trek has seen its ups and its downs, but surely it would’ve flourished under the watchful eye of the genius behind Hannibal and Pushing Daisies!

The silver lining was that Fuller would remain on board as an executive producer, allowing him “to remain actively involved albeit not on the day-to-day production level as originally envisioned.”
Well, so much for that. In a new interview, Fuller has essentially confirmed that we won’t be working on Star Trek: Discovery at all.
