Star Trek: Picard hasn’t even been released, yet a spin-off has been officially greenlit. CBS All Access, once again rushing to the sci-fi well which icon Gene Roddenberry created, has given us Discovery and Picard TV shows. This kind of space trek will be barking up a furry tree. Now, it approaches. Prepare for – Star Trek: Dogs Of War.
War Dogs or Trek Dogs?
Laugh Trek barked loudly and howled like idiots – all to let the dogs out! We ceremoniously let loose The Dogs Of War. After asking our staff: Why the hell not? What better occasion to release cool combative canines then to usher in a real dog trek?
After properly exercising our pooper scoopers to clean up after our well fed canine crew, Laugh Trek leashed up a few amiable TV suits to chew a bone on war dogs.
LT: Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war! Getting us all in the proper mood. Like?
WD: That’s our prime motivational phrase, our Prime Directive! We’re gonna let the dogs out – amazing Trek dogs from outer space that is!
LT: So, in Star Trek Picard does our legendary Jean-Luc Picard search for dogs and then find dogs of war or does he help breed dogs of war? What’s the deal?
WD: Picard will definitely search for dogs – but his quest and journey looking for war dogs won’t end with his show – therefore we needed a solid spin-off.
LT: So much new Star Trek. I can barely keep up.
WD: IKR. And much more is coming! Don’t worry!
LT: Honestly, I’m a bit worried – but intrigued. What kind of powers and abilities will these War Dogs exhibit?
WD: We toyed with making them Changelings – you know shape shifters from Deep Space Nine, but then realized the complexities of the Dominion would have to be involved and that’s a bit much.
LT: A bit much for the fans, or a bit much work in terms of conception and writing?
WD: Both. We want to get these shows out in the marketplace for streaming on CBS All Access ASAP. Who cares about development – let’s get Trek back on track!
LT: Who cares? Hmmm… Then, I must ask, why should we care about Star Trek: Dogs of War?
WD: There will be dogs! Dogs are cute! They are trendsetting and trendy! You feast on video game like CGI. On starships and transporters and, did I mention DOGS? Yes, Star Trek with warp drive, phasers, photon torpedoes and furry, funny and friendly dogs! We’re gonna let the dogs out!
LT: Yeah. You said that already.
WD: We can never say it too much! Live Long and Pooch! Let’s see what dogs are out there. Beam up the dogs, Scotty!
LT: Wow. Thanks….. I’m doggone confused.
