Bringing Back Star Trek

In a recent article on Vox, Todd Van Der Werff proposed a solution for returning Star Trek to the small screen by turning it into an anthology series in the style of True Detective.

The show Van Der Werff has in mind has merit, but it’s not Star Trek. Now, there are rumors that the show may yet return to TV. I don’t hold out much hope — but it’s enough to get this Trekkie thinking!
