Paramount+, in the last few hours, has confirmed a series order for a new show that will “follow the adventures of a new class of Starfleet cadets as they come of age in one of the most legendary places in the galaxy.” Alex Kurtzman will co-showrun alongside Noga Landau (creator of the CW’s Nancy Drew).

Tawny Newsome, of the Lower Decks writers room, has posted on Twitter that she’s joined the new series as well.

Our database will be getting a much needed coat of paint and some love in the very near future to take in all of these new episodes.
