A new animated Star Trek adventure is heading to Nickelodeon.
The new CG-animated series will follow a group of lawless teens who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and use it to search for adventure, meaning and salvation.
Kevin and Dan Hageman, the pair behind Trollhunters and Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu will be in charge of the new show. “Star Trek, Nickelodeon, and the state of animation are doing incredibly ambitious things as of late. We couldn’t be more excited to jump aboard,” said Dan and Kevin Hageman.
Alex Kurtzman, who signed a five-year deal at CBS TV last summer to oversee all “Star Trek” TV projects released the following statement:
“‘Star Trek’s’ mission is to inspire generations of dreamers to build a brighter future. Dan and Kevin have crafted a story that honors its exploratory spirit in a way that’s never been done before, while the Nickelodeon team blew us away with their excitement at bringing ‘Trek’ to a younger generation around the world.”
