Patrick Stewart is set to star in a new series that will take a deeper dive into the captain's life. Stewart announced the news himself on Saturday, Aug. 4 at a "Star Trek" convention in Las Vegas. The show is set to air on CBS All Access, CBS' video-on-demand service. Fans are excited about the series, but aren't happy they will have to pay extra to view it. Do we really need another "Star Trek" series?

Stewart released a statement via Twitter about the new series.

Stuart Heritage of The Guardian says the best part of the series returning is Stewart and that he paved the way for "Star Trek" captains.

"Of course, most of the excitement about this series concerns Patrick Stewart. Not only is he a beloved figure in the Star Trek world – if it wasn’t for him, after all, Star Trek captains would still be bonehead punch-’em-up Kirk analogues."

Some fans are excited, but they have reservations. "Star Trek" fans are concerned the only way they can view the series is through CBS' streaming service. Typically in order to utilize CBS All Access, a paid membership is required. They are also concerned about the casting. Some fans want a new series and are not interested in another series starring Stewart.
