What was to be a four-page treatment ballooned into 34 pages that fully fleshed out the series. That was enough to get Stewart back; the untitled series, from CBS Television Studios, is currently entering pre-production.

The exact plot details are being kept mostly under wraps, though the series will take place after the events of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Kurtzman will executive produce with James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, and Kirsten Beyer along with Stewart, Trevor Roth, Heather Kadin, and Rod Roddenberry.
