GiantFreakinRobot.com reports that a new Star Trek television series is being envisioned by David Foster of 1974 Entertainment. They link to an interview on TrekWeb.com that includes a good deal of information about the potential project. I'm not finding much information online specifically about Foster or his company, hence the lack of related links. Despite this, he seems to have a rather fleshed out vision of where to take the franchise that doesn't include the changes from the reboot incorporated from JJ Abrams 2009 Star Trek film. IMDb.com still has a sequel to that movie slated for 2012 with seemingly all of its cast attached, though it has only been announced and it is unclear if production has even begun in earnest. Frankly, I'd be fine if both projects go forward, no matter of their universes jibe with one another. From my perspective, the more Trek the better!
