    Not surprising. That's a huge money deal for any author. The opportunity to not only sell your show, but to show run and executive produce. Won't shock me if he still writes an occasional episode for Star trek, and is still staying on as producer.

    Series creator title =huge money

    Bryan Fuller didn't last to produce any episodes of Discovery, but he retains his series creator and executive producer title. Laughing all the way to the bank.

    No surprise here. Can't wait ...


    In what will bring great joy to fans of the once Next Generation captain and surprise to almost no one in Hollywood, Star Trek: Picard has been given the green light for a second season before its series debut next month.

    Like the first season that will premiere on CBS All Access on January 23, Season 2 of the Patrick Stewart-led Picard looks to be a 10-episode order for the streamer. As a part of that second season, the latest venture in the Alex Kurtzman marshaled Trekverse has been allocated over $20.4 million in California tax incentives.

    CBS declined to comment on a Season 2 for the Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora co-starring series. However, with plans already publicly in place for current showrunner Michael Chabon to shift roles in a second season, the Next Gen alum Jonathan Frakes and Brent Spiner and Jeri Ryan featuring Picard was clearly going for that next final frontier with seems sure to be a big draw and a flagship show for the relatively new and bulking up subscription-based streamer.

    Certainly, the huge reaction that Picard received when the resurrection of the philosopher-captain was first announced in Las Vegas last year and the tax credits made public today were a cold hard cash indication that the CBS Television Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment produced series was going to engage further, to paraphrase Jean-Luc himself.

    That $20.45 million Season 2 of Picard snagged is the most any small screen project has ever been awarded in the California Film Commission run program since then Governor Jerry Brown officially expanded the credits to $330 million a year overall and ditched the much-criticized lottery system in September 2014.

    In comparison, the much-anticipated Michael Chabon showrun first season of Picard was awarded $15.6 million this time last year. While a not insignificant chunk of change, that $15.6 million wasn’t even the most awarded series of that November 2018 allocation period, with top dollars of $15.8 million going to the third season of Fox’s Star Trek homage of sorts, The Orville.

    Similar to Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard will drop new episodes weekly for Season 1 on CBS All Access and is expected to do the same for the late 2020 or early 2021 penciled in Season 2. With Star Trek: Picard having recently wrapped up its first season, sources tell me that a Season 2 could be making the jump to production warp speed as early as next spring.

    IIRC she spearheaded the Save Star Trek campaign when TOS was going to be cut from the roster.
    It's how they got a third season (with a slashed budget).

    Your thinking of Bjo and John Trimble. Bjo spearheaded the letter-writing campaign. They also helped start up the first star trek conventions. They are still considered trek royalty and are still invited to most premieres and large conventions

    Watched 'What we left behind' yesterday.
    I nver looked up Garak's real face on purpose.
    But now there was no escaping it.
    He looked as creepy as he always did.
    Good man.

    For the past two weeks, behind the walls of Kingston Penitentiary, something special has been happening.

    There, the cast and crew of CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery have been filming for the show’s upcoming season three. The seventh series in the Star Trek franchise, Discovery was launched in 2017 and is filmed primarily in Toronto. The premise of the show follows the crew of the USS Discovery, and begins about a decade before Star Trek: The Original Series.

    The series began by uniting the Klingon houses in war against the United Federation of Planets, and season two took place after the war with Discovery investigating seven strange red signals and a mysterious being called the Red Angel. Through all of this, Michael Burnham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green, is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock. By the end of the second season, Discovery travels to the 32nd century, over 900 years into their future.

    Here in Kingston, the show’s cast and crew did a little time travelling of their own, venturing behind the thick stone walls of one of Canada’s oldest and most notorious prisons, Kingston Penitentiary. Known for housing some of the nation’s most infamous criminals, from James Donnelley of the Black Donnellys, to Clifford Olson, Kingston Penitentiary closed in September of 2013, and has since been known for its guided tours, and as a destination filming location.

    With season three of Star Trek: Discovery expected to be released in early 2019, very little is known about what will happen in the coming season. As such, the filming here in Kingston was kept under wraps until the cast and crew completed their final day of wrap-up yesterday.

    “The Kingston Film Office did indeed host Season Three of Star Trek: Discovery in Kingston over the past two weeks. We kept everything entirely confidential at the express request of the production, but I can confirm that we hosted them for five days of pre-production, two days of shooting, and they’re in the process of finishing three days of wrap-up,” said Alex Jansen, Film Commissioner with the Kingston Film Office.

    I did, too. We have a channel that used to broadcast 10 episodes of it every Sunday morning.

    New teaser trailer was being played during the NFL games yesterday. Just 3 weeks away! Cool to see CBS doing such a big marketing push.
