A new animated "Star Trek" series is in talks for Nickelodeon, according to Deadline. The show is reportedly being developed by Alex Kurtzman and CBS TV Studios, with "Ninjago's" Kevin and Dan Hageman penciled in to write.

Nickelodeon envisions this as "a major tentpole series" for the network - and would be the first modern-day "Star Trek" series aimed at younger audiences. The previously-announced "Lower Decks" series is intended for mature audiences, as are the live action "Star Trek: Discovery," "Picard" and "Section 31."
