Does it say - don't hire Brannon Braga?

Just what I was thinking.

As TV continues to be swallowed by the internet, expensive genre programs (sci-fi) are going to be among the first to go. By the time CBS decides to do another ST, it may be too late. But we already know this.

However Terra Nova getting cancelled is like Threshold getting cancelled. Probably best not to read too much into it.

The smart move would be to put Trek on basic cable. Shows survive there. A channel like FX or AMC.

As to Terra Nova, it was a show with an interesting premise and a great look. But it often failed in the writing and execution department. I always had mixed feelings about that show.

I do sometimes wonder if CBS would be willing to transfer or sell the rights to another network/cable/channel etc or whether they plan to just keep a hold of it even if they don't plan to produce another series anytime soon.

Interesting idea Horatio… they could undoubtedly make work and sprinkle in a few british actors maybe…

I think the cost of quality CGI may kill the SF series market entirely… maybe we will only see a sprinkling of made for TV and sold on DVD episodes. I also believe that the third Trek movie will be the last… you'll not see an old Pine or Quinto reprising their roles in their fifties either.

That's about twenty years away. I think that's probably well beyond the length of time that this film series will run for.

That said, the TOS films were only made over a 12 year period themselves.
