Kurtzman Wants To Do “Star Trek: Legacy” SuperNayr


As the head of the “Star Trek” franchise on television these days, the buck stops with producer Alex Kurtzman on a number of things related to that world.

As such there’s a big part of the fandom that loves to saddle him with all the blame for everything they perceive as wrong with the franchise, from creative choices within the individual shows to which shows ultimately get the green light to move forward.

One common narrative that seems to have emerged on discussion boards is that “Star Trek: Legacy,” a proposed follow-up to the third and final season of “Picard,” isn’t moving forward and Kurtzman – either in part or in full – is responsible for blocking it.

In a new chat with Den of Geek, Kurtzman has straight out denied any such claims, saying the decision to greenlight such a project is well above him as he would be moving forward with such a series imminently if he could:

“If I had a magic button, a magic ‘greenlight button,’ for Star Trek: Legacy, and it was all on me, I’d push that button today. Right now, it’s beyond my paygrade.”

The comments follow CBS president George Cheeks’ recent comments that the “Star Trek” franchise remains “one of the most important franchises for Paramount Global, and Paramount+ specifically.”

Cheeks indicated at the time that they may be doing with Trek what Disney is doing with Marvel of late – namely, slowing down the timeline rollout of shows and avoiding too many series at once.

“Star Trek: Discovery” will launch its fifth and final season on Thursday whilst a “Section 31” film recently wrapped production.
