We as fans are collectively excited about the creation of a new Star Trek TV show. CBS has brought on a great creative staff for the new series, however they have made one fatal flaw in the distribution of the new show.
The company CEO himself has decided to debut the first episode on primetime television and then make all new episodes only available through the CBS all access paid subscription service.
This essentially limits distribution of the new series and puts a nail in the coffin of any chances that it may have at being truly successful.
The purpose of this petition is to directly email the CBS executive staff and CEO requesting to reverse this decision and make Star Trek available as a broadcast tv show so everyone may enjoy it.
CSI: Cyber, one of the worst reviewed television series ever is given a primetime slot, but Star Trek is left to be viewed through an online pay service.
Fans of Star Trek want and deserve better.
Science fiction and fantasy television shows are giving many other television networks egregious amounts of revenue and ratings. Why can't Star Trek be given the proper platform to do so as well?
We as fans demand that Star Trek not be exclusive to CBS all access and be available to all as a broadcast TV series.
