Quote['Prodigy'] reflects exactly what we're looking to do at Paramount+. In the early going for the new platform, franchises are incredibly valuable in driving people across the paywall and we know this.The addition of 'Prodigy' is huge in that it's taking this franchise and expanding possibility of this hungry new demographic for 'Star Trek.' It does speak to the highest execution of the kind of things we're looking to do at Paramount+. Part of what we've seen is our 'Star Trek' fans on CBS All Access, it's interesting what they'll go to.They'll go to 'The Legend of Korr'a and pop around and find things that fit that particular — and I say this lovingly — nerd demo. Our hope and thought, in concert with [Nickelodeon president] Brian Robbins, is that by bringing those Trek fans and their children into Prodigy on the platform is great way of hitting those hardcore Trek fans.On the other hand, on the linear side, is hitting kids that may not be interested in 'Star Trek' but do watch Nickelodeon and would be interested in trying something new on the network.
Quote from: MojoJojo on February 25, 2021, 08:53:09 AMIt's sort of cool there's no human main cast, but a bit weird they haven't used any of the species that already exist in trek.Overall I think the concept is OK and could be fun for kids, but it's really sort of edge of franchise stuff, so doesn't really fix the problem of the main bit (Discovery and maybe Picard) being shit.
QuoteUltimately for Paramount+ to be the centralized home of all Star Trek is ideal but I do like the idea of being able to explore what kinds of strange shows you can put on that don't necessarily fit into a box. That's so much of what we're trying to do with Trek: give you what's familiar but also forge new ground.
QuoteDo I see something on BET? Yes, because there may be a niche Star Trek show that's perfect for that. I want to make sure as we build this out that we're being thoughtful about creating a really interesting rainbow of colors, that each show feels different and you don't think, "I can watch Picard and not watch the others." Because they're all very different. That to us is more important — staying true to that approach."
Quote from: Zetetic on February 25, 2021, 01:18:21 PMI think you could do a really neat YA-ish show about YA-ish members of entirely novel small species and civilisations experiencing Starfleet and the Federation[nb]Trying to join, or shortly after having done so.[/nb], and the rest of the galaxy, using the setups of those civilisations to reflect in a more relevant way[nb]Than the Romulan or Cardassian politics, say, tend to lend themselves to.[/nb] on things like how our prejudices and ways of seeing the world stand between us and Utopian Space Communism, or engaging with people less tolerant and more full of nonsense than yourself, away from a strong temptation to do something lore-significant about massive wars or whatever.No reasons to believe this is it, alas.

Quote from: Spoon of Ploff on February 25, 2021, 07:46:44 AMstarting to think this is all part of a plan to get Wesley Crusher further and further away from that Worst Star Trek character spot.
Quote from: Lemming on February 25, 2021, 05:48:17 AMGave Discovery Series 3 a complete miss and enjoyed great mental health benefits as a result, so going to skip over this one too, especially given that it's aimed at people who are like 5 years old. There's a possibility that it'll turn out to be the greatest Star Trek series of all time, of course, but I'll let other people be the canaries in the coal mine. Probably just going to be yet another round of grueling, soul-sucking punishment for beleaguered Trek fans.
