The excitement is starting to build for Bryan Fuller's new CBS STAR TREK reboot, a fresh new series that's going to introduce us to new villains, new heroes, and new worlds as stated in the new teaser trailer. We're still not sure if this new series is going to take us further into the future past the events of Star Trek: Nemesis, the last movie in the current timeline. We're not even sure if this is going to feature the Starship Enterprise, but one thing is for certain, fans are going to love it!
If the show takes us into the future, there are already volunteers from past shows that would love to reprise their original roles for the new show. Kate Mulgrew, who played Captain Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager would love to make a return to the franchise as an Admiral for Starfleet, and she said it on the TODAY show.
I want to be the admiral and I want to boss them around
Kate Mulgrew isn't the only Voyager Alum that would love to join the new series! Jeri Ryan, the redeemed Borg knownSeven of Nine
also stated her willingness to reprise her famous role in an interview withDigital Spy.
"My understanding is that it's in a very different world from any of the previous shows - but never say never. It'd be fun to just drop in and revisit her - not that I want to revisit her all the time!" Jeri Ryan
If the show is within an acceptable length of the timeline from Star Trek: Nemesis, that can also mean we can see characters from The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine as well. Special guest appearances would help bridge the gap between the new Bryan Fuller show and the franchise history that already has been established. The new movies, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, John Cho and Karl Urban are already telling the story of the original crew of the Starship Enterprise, as the release of Star Trek: Beyond (7/22/16) is just around the corner.
So with that said, the new show can take a different path by telling us what happened to the characters of the three different television shows (TNG, DS9, Voyager) and help fans get some closure for that era of Star Trek. Although there is mention that the new show may take place after the events of Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country and before The Next Generation. Whatever happens, we know that the future for Star Trek on TV is once again going where no one has gone before!
