Amazing, amazing news. I'm genuinely excited as hell.

Hannibal” creator Bryan Fuller has found his next mission: showrunner and co-creator of CBS’ new “Star Trek” series.

A longtime fan of science fiction, Fuller began his career writing for “Star Trek: Voyager” (1997-2001) and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” (1997).

“My very first experience of ‘Star Trek’ is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the ‘Star Trek’ universe lit my imagination on fire,” said Fuller. “It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand new iteration of ‘Star Trek’ with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no ‘Star Trek’ series has gone before.”

I never got around to watching Hannibal (Caz doesn't do gore/horror, so it would be me finding time on my own), but I loved Dead Like Me, so I'm happy.

The all-new “Star Trek” will begin production in Toronto in September for its January 2017 premiere.

Teaser trailer. The new show is called Star Trek Discovery and will follow the adventures of the Starship USS Discovery. The story will be set in the "Prime" universe, i.e the 2009 reboot universe.

That design has elements of some of the early concept art for the Motion Picture.

Done by Ralph McQuarrie back in 1976-77.

 

Here's a link to an io9 article that discusses the history - http://io9.gizmodo.com/5721854/ralph-mcquarries-lost-concept-art-for-a-star-trek-movie-in-1976-1977/

 

The space dock section of the trailer looks like it lifted this very closely:
