New STAR TREK series to film in Toronto this autumn

The new Star Trek TV series will start shooting in September in Toronto.

The Excelsior-class USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B, previously seen in Star Trek: Generations, will likely be around during the timeframe of the new series, but will not be the setting.

Relatively little has been confirmed about the new series, but rumours hint that it will be an anthology series which will jump between different eras and locations in Star Trek's history from season to season. The first season is rumoured to take place between the events of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek: The Next Generation and will not involve a ship called Enterprise.

This is the first Star Trek TV series to shoot in Canada: all five previous live-action shows were shot in and around Los Angeles.

Casting has been underway for the last few months, so hopefully we'll start getting casting news soon.

Nice. Next time I'm up that way for work (or a Jays game), I'll have to see if I can sneak any glimpses.

Probably there to save money, which is fine. It'll also mean less California-based alien locales!
