Corona Virus is going to derail Star Trek series plans

Corona Virus is going to derail Star Trek series plans.

I point this out because I don't want to see people pointing out that Section 31 isn't going into production this Spring, so it "must mean its been cancelled". No it means the Canadian US border is shut down, Hollywood is shut down, and all that jazz.

So the schedule, like everyones has been sent into chaos.

The bright side is at least we will still get Discovery season 3, and most likely Lower Decks this year.

But Section 31 Season 1, Picard Season 2, Discovery Season 4, Lower Decks Season 2, ST: Pike, ST: Starfleet Academy, ST: Prodigy, and Star Trek: Crossovers (place holder name) will all be delayed, perhaps to 2022 or later even in some cases.

    Do some reading to fill the gap.

    Just not necessarily this one.

    Well, I mean, it's hard to go wrong with Greg Bear, but yes the title might be a little off-putting... :smile:

    Actually the Section 31 filming start date was pushed back to accommodate Michelle Yeoh's schedule as she was set to do something for a film role; but I agree, with everything industry wide stopped or shut down - once production starts up - many things across the entire industry (not just Star Trek) are going to have to be reworked and rescheduled.

    Maybe we will have the opposite of the Writer's Strike about 10 years ago where we will get better content since they have longer to work on it.

    Perhaps, they have extra time for polish.

    WIth our luck, bored CBS execs will write their own Star Trek fan fiction, delude themselves into thinking it's the best Star Trek ever, and make new series out of it...

    Well... its not just Star Trek that's being affected. Word is that the Olympics are now posponed. It has NEVER been posponed before. Even during massive wars like WW2 we had the Olympics. Virus just made more history.

    Not true. The 1940 and 1944 Olympic Games were both cancelled. So were the 1916 Olympics for that matter.

    While I did not know that... it still applies as you said they were outright canceled. Not posponed.

    I suspect the olympics will be canceled

    Canada and Australia are not participating while the pandemic is happening. It is more likely that the Olympics will be postponed not cancelled.

    As long as we don't discover that Japan has built some sort of cryogenic storage facility underneath the Tokyo 2020 Olympics arena, all will be well.

    I think it was postponed. My buddy, Abe was talking about it on TV last night.
