Star Trek: Alex Kurtzman Wants to See Unification of Films and Television

Alex Kurtzman, head of Star Trek television, would like to unify continuity between Star Trek TV and films. The Star Trek universe continues to expand, with three series having launched under Kurtzman’s watch, three more in active development, and three movies percolating at Paramount Pictures. The Viacom and CBS merger of 2019 puts the rights to both Star Trek TV and movies under one roof. Still, the two entities have continued to work separately. Speaking to SFX Magazine, Kurtzman says he’d like to see both sides of the Star Trek franchise unified, believing it’s what’s best for the franchise’s future.

“I have no involvement in it right now,” Kurtzman says. “I don’t know where that’s going. Frankly, I have my hands very full. Having done two of those ?lms, I loved them so much, and I really would love to see continuity and uni?cation between the features and the TV side, because I think it’s what’s good for Star Trek, and that can be done any number of ways.”

Kurtzman co-wrote and executive produced Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, the first two films in the Kelvin Timeline continuity. Though marketed like a reboot, Star Trek revealed that the original Star Trek continuity remains intact. At the same time, the events of the Kelvin Timeline movies unfold in an alternate universe, with Leonard Nimoy’s Spock crossing over from the original timeline to the new one. As head of Star Trek television, Kurtzman produces shows in the original “prime timeline,” including Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, and Star Trek: Lower Decks.
