    Star Trek: Discovery Showrunners Exit, Replaced by Alex Kurtzman
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Star Trek: Discovery
    showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have been let go
    from the sophomore season of the CBS All Access series and will
    be replaced by executive producer Alex Kurtzman.

    "We've made some producer changes at Star Trek: Discovery,"CBS
    Television Studios tells the trade."The series continues under
    the creative vision and leadership of executive producer and
    co-creator Alex Kurtzman. Discovery remains on course for season
    two in 2019 with new and continuing stories that build on its
    successful premiere season," CBS Television Studios tells the
    trade.

    This isn't the first time that the captain's chair has gotten a
    new occupant for Discovery either as it was originally set to be
    showrun by Bryan Fuller before he departed the series to focus
    on American Gods.

    THR notes that the changing of the guard comes during a
    pre-planned hiatus after production of the first batch of
    episodes for the second season. The outlet also reveals that the
    ouster of Berg and Harberts comes due to reports of a hostile
    writer's room with multiple writers on the series reportedly
    feeling uncomfortable from "abusive" behavior. In addition, the
    budget for the first five episodes reportedly ballooned beyond
    expectations and will have an effect on the remaining episodes
    of season two.

    Kurtzman has worked on the series since its inception, and even
    been part of the world of Star Trek since the first J.J. Abrams
    movie which he wrote. It was previously reported that he would
    direct the season two premiere as well.

    Star Trek: Discoveryfollows the voyages of Starfleet on their
    missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one
    Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all
    things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will
    feature a new ship and new characters while embracing the same
    ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of
    dreamers and doers.

    Hmmm.... Discovery has it's issues, but is not the worst Star Trek ever.
    In Alex Kurtzman however I've little faith. If you look at the last
    three movies (The Kelvin Timeline ones), the third one is easily the
    best with the first one having major issues and the second one being
    just painful to watch.

    Oh!! If the new series featured a new ship with a new crew ... I can

    that's somewhat different.

    IMHO, of course!

    Well, at one time that's exactly what they were thinking about. An
    anthology show featuring a different crew in a different era each
    season. But they abandoned that idea.

    Wasn't that Bryan Fuller's original idea for the series? I'd have
    enjoyed that a lot more than the 'Discovery' we ended up with.

    So the Series "Star Trek:Discovery", from the start, was supposed to
    keep the same 'behind the camera crew' but everything in front of the
    cameras was up for changing as required!! Really!!

    Star Trek:TOS .. same ship and ship's crew through the three series
    (things change in the films, though).
    Star Trek:TNG .. changed ships from the "D" to the "E" but largely the
    same ship's crew.
    Star Trek:DS9 .. same space station and main crew.
    Star Trek:Voy .. same ship and main crew (mainly).
    Star Trek:Ent .. same ship and main crew.

    Star Trek:Dis .. all change often!!

    Yep. Googled for "star trek discovery anthology" and the first result
    is a post on The Verge entitled "Bryan Fuller originally envisioned Star
    Trek: Discovery as an anthology show":

    According to Fuller, his vision would begin with a prequel series
    (DISCOVERY is set before STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES), and would
    continue through the eras that followed in VOYAGER, THE NEXT
    GENERATION, DEEP SPACE NINE, and beyond. CBS instead decided to move
    forward with a serialized season, and would see how audiences
    responded.

    It's a shame we ended up with what we got. I'm not really invested in
    any of the characters, so I'd have been happy to leave them behind for a
    new cast/era in season two.

    Here in Australia, the show is on Pay T.V., if it's on at all! I don't
    have Pay T.V. so yet to see any of it. Knowing this "All Change" is on
    the card, I might not bother when it does get to Free-to-Air T.V.!!

    Netflix is "Pay T.V." - you have to pay an on-going fee to watch
    anything on it (although the first moth is free).

    As for any particular show being on it ... who knows. They're such
    braindead morons that you can't even see a list on their website of
    which shows are available, unless you sign up. :-\

    Here in Australia, the show is on Pay T.V., if it's on at all! I
    don't have Pay T.V. so yet to see any of it. Knowing this "All
    Change" is on the card, I might not bother when it does get to
    Free-to-Air T.V.!!

    It's not on Australian Netflix?

    Netflix is "Pay T.V." - you have to pay an on-going fee to watch
    anything on it (although the first moth is free).


    Ah, okay. I thought Daniel was referring to regular cable television.



    As for any particular show being on it ... who knows. They're such
    braindead morons that you can't even see a list on their website of
    which shows are available, unless you sign up.  :-\



    You mean like this:

    Ah, okay. I thought Daniel was referring to regular cable television.

    It could have been, but at the end it also says "Free-to-Air T.V.", so
    that would mean "Pay T.V." must be anything you pay a fee for -
    Netflix, Sky TV, iTunes, etc.

    Yep ... it's moronically stupid that you can't see a listing of shows
    on Netflix's own website. :-\

    There's a link 'hidden' at the bottom of the page in the site maps
    links for "Netflix Originals" which does give a long list of shows and
    movies, but that's only their own products (and does include Star Trek Discovery), not others like "Star Trek Voyager" or "The Expanse" which
    are on the JustWatch.com list,
