Be still my little heart, but plans are underway to get the venerable franchise back on television.

David Foster, the man behind the new incarnation has this to say:

The series concept is fully developed, subject to change of course, with a solid 5-7 year series plan, pilot script and a conceptualized finale that intends to define Star Trek for generations, extensive character bios, costume and ship/set designs, and more. This is a drastic departure from the typical 8-10 page treatment of the previously pitched Star Trek series ideas that have not included even a pilot script.

Word is the series will take place after Star Trek: Voyager and will not incorporate the JJ Abrams continuity of the series.

WhatCulture.com has an extensive writeup on what Foster had to say about the new series at the Star Trek Las Vegas Convention.

So what say you? Seems like honest-to-goodness Science Fiction is hard to come by on TV of late. Is it time to boldly go back to the future?
