Beam me up Nick! Animated Star-Trek series in development

According to Deadline, a new series is being developed by Alex Kurtzman and CBS Studios, with Ninjago’s Kevin and Dan Hageman being penciled in to write.

Even though it is currently in talks for Nickelodeon, they envision it as a “major tentpole series” for the network. It would be the first time a Star Trek series was aimed at younger audiences.

This report would be coming after the conclusion of the first animated series 45 years ago which aired on NBC.
