Star Trek will return to TV in January 2017 | Ars Technica. I do not apologize for the admission that I love StarTrek and hate Star Wars. It is like comparing Shakespeare to a Romance Novel. StarTrek informed my youth and adolescence, and I loved its message. I also loved the science and science fiction, much of which has corollaries in the present. It is fitting that it is not returning to network TV; but, instead will be streamed over the Internet. You can bet that I will be watching. How about you?
