A new petition has been created to call for a pre-The Original Series Star Trek series focused on Captain Pike and starring Anson Mount.
The petition on Change.org created by Bruce Myers calls for CBS to create a prequel Star Trek series focused on Anson Mount’s Captain Pike and Ethan Peck’s Spock.
Myers simply writes:
“Millions of Trekkies, both young and old, have absolutely loved Anson Mount’s (Pike) and Ethan Peck’s (Spock) portrayal of these iconic Star Trek characters. While we’ve enjoyed their performances on Discovery – we know its coming to an end…and we want more! Consider adding another Star Trek series to your line up starring these two great actors.”
The petition is expected to be delivered to CBS All Access, Star Trek Fans, and Anson Mount and Ethan Peck.
CBS launched Star Trek: Discovery in 2017 and the series just wrapped up its second season and has already been renewed for a third season.
CBS has already announced a spin-off series for the show focused on Michelle Yeoh’s Captain Philippa Georgiou. The Hollywood Reporter indicates the show will be “a black ops-themed spinoff.” They add it will “explore Starfleet’s Section 31 division, a shadow organization within the Federation featured on Star Trek: Discovery.”
Not only are they working on this Star Trek: Discovery spin-off, but they are also working on a Picard-focused Star Trek series with Patrick Stewart returning to the iconic role.
It’s not out of the realm of possibility for CBS to create a new spin-off featuring Captain Pike and Spock.
Captain Pike actor Anson Mount has already responded to the calls for a spin-off show. He took to Facebook, where he wrote:
“I am humbled and deeply touched by this amount of love. I have NEVER received such gratitude. Please know that my own gratitude at having been given the opportunity to walk in Captain Pike’s boots is equaled only by that which I feel for the Trek family’s devotion. Seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
The petition has been signed by over 8,000 as of this writing.
