Star Trek: TNG spinoff announced

Deep Space NineParamount formally announces plans to launch another Star Trek spinoff, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, in 1993, with filming to begin later in 1992. With casting yet to be finalized and the series concept still in flux, the public’s first glimpse is a year away; many trade publications still list Michelle Forbes’ TNG character, Ensign Ro, as one of DS9’s main characters. The series will be the first Star Trek entity not created by the late Gene Roddenberry; instead, TNG showrunners Rick Berman and Michael Piller have created the show’s concept, which is said to be “darker and grittier.”
