It will be the streaming service’s seventh Trek series. Filming will begin next year.
The universe of Star Trek still expands to Paramount+. A little over a year after the first news, the streaming service has formalized the order of Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, his fifth live-action series based on the wildly popular sci-fi franchise created nearly sixty years ago by Gene Roddenberry. The new interaction bears the signatures of Alex Kurtzmanthe main architect of Star Trek Universe (new phase of the franchise started in 2017 with Star Trek: Discovery) and by the co-creator of Nancy Drew Careful Landau.
What Star Trek: Starfleet Academy is about
To present in detail the idea behind it Star Trek: Starfleet Academy were the same Kurtzman and Landau in a statement: “For the first time in over a century, Starfleet Academy will reopen to admit individuals of at least 16 Earth years (or equivalent) who dream of exceeding their physical limits, mental and spiritual, who recognize the value of friendship, camaraderie, honor and devotion to a cause greater than themselves”.
“The courses will be rigorous, the instructors among the brightest lights in their respective fields, and those who are accepted will live and study side-by-side with the most diverse student population ever admitted,” the co-creators and showrunners added. “Today we encourage all who share our dreams, goals and values to join a new generation of visionary cadets as they take their first steps towards creating a bright future for all of us.” Castings will take place in the coming weeks, with a view to filming starting in 2024. The production team includes the creator of Absentia Gaia Violowho wrote the first episode.
Paramount+ Expands the Star Trek Universe
The order of Star Trek: Starfleet Academy about a month after the announcement that Star Trek: Discovery will end with the next, fifth season, and the renewal of only a few hours Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks for a third and fifth season, before the debut of the second (streaming June 15) and fourth (streaming this summer). On April 20 it will also end Star Trek: Picardwhile the other animated series Star Trek: Prodigy will return with a second round of episodes next winter. We also remember that Paramount + is developing Star Trek: Section 31 (working title), spin-off focusing on Philippa Georgiou, the character played in Discovery by the actress fresh from winning the Oscars Michelle Yeohand that in the past the anthology Star Trek: Short Treks delved into the key characters and themes of the main series.
