Now streaming… the final frontier.
Set phasers to stun, Trekkies. "Star Trek" is returning to television — sort of. CBS revealed on Monday that a new installment of the popular science fiction franchise would appear in 2017.
There's a catch, however. The new series will be available exclusively on CBS All Access, the network's digital subscription video and live streaming service. The service costs $5.99 per month.
The iteration will introduce new characters "seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966," according to a release from the company.
