Paramount+ is bringing more Star Trek to the fans.
According to multiple sources, Paramount+ has ordered a new series from the Star Trek Universe along with a description of the new series.
Star Trek: Starfleet Academy is a new series that will be executive produced by Alex Kurtzman and Noga Landau. The pair released a statement about the new series stating; “Admission is now open to Starfleet Academy!” the statement reads. “Explore the galaxy! Captain your destiny! For the first time in over a century, our campus will be re-opened to admit individuals a minimum of 16 Earth years (or species equivalent) who dream of exceeding their physical, mental and spiritual limits, who value friendship, camaraderie, honor and devotion to a cause greater than themselves. The coursework will be rigorous, the instructors among the brightest lights in their respective fields, and those accepted will live and study side-by-side with the most diverse population of students ever admitted. Today we encourage all who share our dreams, goals and values to join a new generation of visionary cadets as they take their first steps toward creating a bright future for us all. Apply today! Ex Astris, Scientia!”
According to the synopsis, Starfleet Academy; “will introduce us to a young group of cadets who come together to pursue a common dream of hope and optimism. Under the watchful and demanding eyes of their instructors, they will discover what it takes to become Starfleet officers as they navigate blossoming friendships, explosive rivalries, first loves and a new enemy that threatens both the Academy and the Federation itself.”
No casting announcements have been made for the series, but with Picard finishing its final season and Discovery ending after season 5, Paramount has already renewed both Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks for new seasons ahead of their premieres.
