CBS developing new CSI and EMS related Star Trek television shows

A CBS insider leaked to us an announcement about shows in development for the fall 2014 season line up. Due to increased demand for Start Trek to be back on TV after the new JJ Abrams movies, CBS is once again boldly going where no one has gone before. According to our source not one but two Star Trek related shows are in development.

Star Trek CSI and EMS

A new Starship

The first of the shows is a Police Procedural based in the Star Trek universe. The working title is Star Fleet Investigative Section, or SFIS, which promises to be a sci-fi version of CSI or NCIS.

The plot outline we were given is that the show will follow the exploits of the star ship Edmund Locard. For those not familiar with forensic science Edmund Locard was a French Scientist who is responsible with the development of the first modern Crime Lab. The outline said the USS Locard would likely be a “Defiant class” type smaller starship.

Star Fleet Investigative Section would follow a basic police procedural template. Each episode would have a “crime of the week”. The crew of the USS Locard would then be dispatched to warp in and solve the crime. Utilizing futuristic forensic skills the fearless crew will usually successfully solve the crime and restore order.

The breakdowns of plot lines have episodes taking place on other star ships, space stations, asteroid mines, alien planet and back here on Earth. While many plot lines will involve murders, the crew will also be looking into kidnappings, cargo pirating, sabotages, alien spies, and space age war crimes.

In the second show Star Trek will be taking on a medical/rescue drama theme, with a working title of Star Trek: Pierce. It is unknown based on the outline if the name Pierce is in honor of the Fire Engine Manufacture or the US Navy Corpsman who received the Medal of Honor in WWII.

This second show will follow the crew of the USS Pierce, a heavy rescue star ship. In the outline we got, the USS Pierce is described as being a new breed of starship with a prototype “warp Jump drive”. The warp jump is able to open an artificial wormhole between to wormhole generators. Starfleet vessels in the show have emergency beacons that contain one half of the wormhole generator. The USS Pierce also caries deployable probes that make up the other half of the wormhole generator.

The typical episode plotlines will have some ship, space station or other exotic location befall some disaster or unknown medical outbreak. Our heroes will then be dispatched to this emergency event. Using the warp jump they get to any emergency in minutes. In some shows they will use futuristic versions of the Jaws-of-Life and emergency medical techniques to complete their rescues. In other shows the onboard medical lab might be used to develop a cure for a new illness or virus. Other episodes might call for the crew to race in to save a VIP with an emergency surgery, such as a transplant or an experimental procedure.

CBS seems positive they will be able to air multiple Star Trek shows. They currently air multiple versions of CSI and multiple versions of NCIS. Also given that these shows have different central plots, one police related the other EMS/Rescue related, fans should be happy to have two Trek shows on the air. No word on when production will start, nor was there a mention when in 2014 the pilots will air.

      He brought star trek back from death, so cant say what he is doing is bad, millions of people are going to the movies to watch the movies, better then what happened with the next gen movies at the end, and what happened with the crapy enterprise show.

        “He brought star trek back from death”

        I agree! He resurrected its corpse. Now it’s back as a shambling zombie in a grotesque parody of its former life.

    Here’s an idea… how about a strictly Star Trek show that just boldy goes…, not throwing it in a blender with something else, or “re-imagining” something already classic.

  • Davide

    Star Trek is a complex universe, not just Enterprise & Kirk & Spock…new ideas are welcome, I would like to see something different with the Star Trek trademark!

  • foley

    Ya the whole idea of star trek without space exploration would be hard to succeed.

  • Bluecider

    Well… The Next Generation and to some degree Deep Space Nine really helped keep the franchise alive back in the 80’s and 90’s. I still think the formula they used back then is still workable today. I think people would like to see a continuation of the Star Trek Universe as where it left off from around the time of Voyager and end of Deep Space Nine. Characters from these series can definitely reemerge and play guest roles in the story of a new Star Trek Series on TV. I don’t want them to depart from all the lore that was built up over TNG, DS9 and Voyager. I think Star Trek: Enterprise was a mistake and actually took the IP backwards in some respects and by the large gap it created, it almost made it necessary for some type of ‘reboot. I hope CBS has a BRAIN and does Star Trek Universe Just by their new series, keeping what was done in the past, including it, and bringing it forward.

    I hope this is a joke because these ideas sound so lame. The NCIS crowd is not going to care since it’s sci fi and Star Trek fans won’t care because it’s NCIS [ in space]

  • tom pearson

    No no no no!!!!!
    This best be a joke!!! USS ENTERPRISE please!!!!!

  • sledgie

    Yumm…bubblegum and peanuts…finally together at long last!

    ugh…lets all watch CBS ruin Star Trek for generations to come…

  • Steve Williams

    So Disappointing! We need a new Series not based on Whats popular today …how about Lets boldly go where no tv series has gone before!

  • Adam Smith

    Oh look it’s police n’ hospitals innnn Spaaaace!


    How about a Time Ship Enterprise (25th Century) or a shift into a parallel universe where the Borg have taken control of the Klingon Empire! There you go CBS, 5 mins and I’ve had the imagination to come up with two fairly original yet ‘obvious’ directions of where to take Star Trek!

    If it’s SCIS, I nominate that the ship be known as Scissortail (like the scissortail flycatcher, a bird) if not officially, affectionately, due to the SCIS in its name. :)
