First Look At The New ‘Star Trek’ TV Series

Every Star Trek series since TNG has featured alums reprising their respective roles—Leonard Nimoy, James Doohan, and DeForest Kelley returned as their characters "Spock," "Scotty," and "Leonard 'Bones' McCoy," respectively on TNG (William Shatner never appeared on the television series, but he fought alongside the TNG crew as "James T. Kirk" in the 1994 movie Star Trek: Generations.) "Lt. Reg Barclay," played by Dwight Schultz, started on TNG but became an important character on Voyager as the series progressed. "Worf" himself moved to Deep Space 9, following in the footsteps of TNG's "Miles O'Brien," played by Colm Meaney.

It's also worth noting that there is a tradition for a Star Trek alum to show up on the first episode of a new series. TOS' "Bones" appeared the first episode on TNG, Patrick Stewart returned as TNG's "Jean-Luc Picard" in the first episode of DS9, and DS9's "Quark" is seen at the beginning of the first episode of Voyager. James Cromwell, who portrayed warp-drive inventor "Zefram Cochrane" in the 1996 movie Star Trek: First Contact, revisited the role in the pilot of Enterprise.1 As long as this new show takes place in the same timeframe and timeline as the other series (and contracts can be agreed upon), old cast members will surely return.

The new Star Trek series will begin production in Toronto, Canada this fall. Are you looking forward to the still-untitled show? Are you hoping for a new crew to learn to love or something with more familiar faces? Tell us who's in your ideal cast on Facebook and Twitter!


  1. Cromwell is the only one of these actors who didn't play his character in the series that immediately preceded the Star Trek pilot he appeared in. Enterprise premiered just months after Voyager ended, but was set two centuries before the events of Voyager, which made it nearly impossible for a Voyager character to appear.
