Star Trek: What's Next?

Yesterday we talked about Star Wars. Today let’s talk about Star Trek. It started in the 60s with the TV show Star Trek, which was on for three seasons, and then it was cancelled.

In the 70’s there was Star Trek: The Animated Series for one season. It stared the original actors from the original series.

After that, the movies did not start until 1979. From 1979 to 1991, there were six movies made with the original actors from the original series.

Then, starting in the 80’s came the new TV shows. Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–1994), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993–1999), Star Trek: Voyager (1995–2001), and Star Trek: Enterprise (2001–2005).

From 1994 to 2002, there were four more movies, with the cast from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

So, what is up for Star Trek now?

In December 2008, there will be a new Star Trek movie. The film will feature James T. Kirk and Spock, but who will play them? http://en.wikipedia.org

Also, there is a new TV show for Star Trek on the web. Star Trek: New Voyages. It takes off where Star Trek from the 60s ended. After all, it was a five year mission. There are two years to go. It uses different actors instead of the original actors. http://www.StarTrekNewVoyages.com

I’m glad that they are still making Star Trek movies and TV shows. Star Wars people, how about you?
