Titled “Star Trek: The Same Generation” or “ST:TSG”, the series will be set on the Starship Exeter in the same time period as the original series, even occasionally running into the USS Enterprise in its travels.
The first episode will feature a gimmick return trip to 21st Century earth, where the primitive inhabitants have become enslaved by a giant globe spanning computer network, having lost the ability to obtain food, pair-bond, procreate, or satisfy their need for moderately funny satire without computers. After destroying the nexus of the computer network known only as the enigmatic “Cisco”¯, the crew is surprised to find that rather than being grateful, the inhabitants are enraged and their economy has fallen into ruin. Smug with their success, the crew beams back into orbit, while the primitive inhabitants vow never to let Rick Berman or Brandon Brega produce a series again.
