STAR Trek fans have confirmed the new series of the show is a disgrace, six months before it begins filming.
Moments after the news was announced, 10 theories emerged about why the show was terrible, including the, as yet unnamed, crew members’ badges being 3mm too wide.
‘Trekkie’ Wayne Hayes said: “The lead actor, whoever that will be, isn’t fit to follow in the footsteps of Kirk and Picard. Meanwhile, the entire season’s plot arc runs contrary to what I’ve decided is consistent with Star Trek law. Also, the Enterprise will be the wrong shape.
“Still, at least it’s not Deep Space Nine.”
Message boards have united in opposition, with Trekkies vowing to follow the whole series online, then buy the DVD and Blu Ray box sets so they can watch it repeatedly while shouting ‘travesty!’.
US broadcaster CBS has promised to capture the spirit of the original series, by combining stilted performances from C-list actors and fights against people with knobbly foreheads.
