Star Trek turned 50 in 2016, although there hasn’t been a Star Trek television series on the air in close to 12 years. How much has the landscape of television drama changed over the past decade?
 
With new series Star Trek: Discovery scheduled to begin in May, what changes will need to be made to the Trek format to accommodate the 21st century audience? What can such a series bring to viewers that they’re not currently getting from somewhere else? Is there even a place for Star Trek on television any more?
