Coming on the heels of a successful season one for Star Trek Discovery, it was announced a plethora of Star Trek shows will be developed over the next few years.
The biggest announcement was that Patrick Stewart will be back in the captain’s chair as Jean Luc Picard.
This new series will pick up at the end of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It will focus on Picard’s life after the events of TNG. Jean Luc Picard is arguably most fans favorite Star Trek captain. We expect to see some cameos from other TNG characters in this series as they would undoubtedly resurface in Jean Luc’s life.
It is a good time to be a Trekkie! Who is your favorite Star Trek captain and why? Let us know in the comments.
Established in 1969, the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium has been a major benefit to El Paso students and teachers by providing an exciting glimpse into the night sky for audiences of all ages, free of charge.
Now the Planetarium is asking for help from the community.
As you may already know, EPISD is looking to relocate the Planetarium to Northeast El Paso. They have applied for a city grant and need letters of support from you, the community, to show that there is a real interest in continuing this tradition of free learning and fun field trips.
To accomplish this goal, the El Paso Herald Post, working on behalf of the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium, asks you simply submit your name and email in the form below, so the City can see how much we all support this very important part of our community.
But time is of the essence, as all letters need to be received by February 15, 2018.
With your help, we can accomplish keeping the key to the cosmos alive!
Does your business or organization want to join The Gene Roddenberry Planetarium Coalition?

RE: 2018-2019 Community Development Block Grant; El Paso Independent School District Gene Rodenberry Planetarium
Please accept this letter of support on behalf of (agency/organization name) as it relates to EPISD’s 2018-2019 Community Development Block Grant application designed to save and relocate the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium. (agency/organization name) believes that this endeavor is needed and will serve to advance northeast El Paso as well the entire City of El Paso.
The Gene Rodenberry Planetarium has been a source of education, exposure and local resource for thousands of El Paso students, schools and community members for nearly 50 years. It is the only resource of its kind within several hundred miles of El Paso and provides area students, children and community members the opportunity to study and appreciate the universe in its natural beautiful form.
We believe that the loss of such a resource would be detrimental to the entire community. Any effort to save this local treasure and community resource should be given tremendous consideration. Preserving this resource will benefit students academically, enrich the surrounding community with the opportunity for exposure to contemporary and historically significant understanding of the universe. We are in full support of EPISD’s proposal to relocate and save the planetarium and house it in Northeast El Paso. Such preservation must be perceived as not only a community good, but a community necessity!
Should you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
Jack and Troy from ZiaComics.com geek out about the new Star Trek series set to premiere in 2017.
An untitled 2017 Star Trek television series is being created by Bryan Fuller for CBS All Access. It is the first series produced specifically for that service and the first Star Trek series since Star Trek: Enterprise ceased production in 2005.
It will premiere on CBS in January 2017 before moving to All Access. The series will introduce new characters to the franchise and will not be related to the 2016 film Star Trek Beyond.
In January 2016 new CBS president Glenn Geller revealed that he and the CBS Broadcast Network were not involved in the production of the series. He said “It really is for All Access.
The network will be broadcasting the pilot. Bryan Fuller, who began his career writing for Deep Space Nine and Voyager, was announced as the new series’ showrunner and co-creator as well as one of its executive producers. Nicholas Meyer, writer and director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, joined the series as a writer and consulting producer.
In March, Rod Roddenberry, the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth of Roddenberry Entertainment also joined the series as executive producers.
It’s unclear whether the new series will exist within the canon of Abrams-led films. What we do know is that it “will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise.”
This probably means a whole new ship and crew will act as the focal point of the series while taking place concurrently with the last two movies. It is speculated the new TV series will be set after the events of The Undiscovered Country, but before the time of The Next Generation. A source also claimed that the show would be a “seasonal anthology,” meaning that the setting and time period could change with each season.
