Paramount would absolutely love Star Trek's replicator technology. Just take a year's worth of Star Trek licensing fees and replicate them ad infinitum. Until then, there this:

 

 

Paramount appears to want to try to hawk a Star Wars Original Trilogy on the old Shatner series. It wants to release new versions of the old episodes into syndication. New CG effects replace the old ones, new music inserted into the episodes, and digitially remastering the episodes. Hey, maybe they'll digitially insert a REAL bricklayer into a scene behind McCoy? Or replace the phaser rifles with communicators instead?

Since there's no link, I assume you're jerking our chains?

 

On a more serious note...

 

The J.J. Abrams (Lost) Star Trek feature is going to happen. Development has already started...

Well, you know, you could try searching for it... :)

'Star Trek' May Go Where It Went Before

 

Rumors sped at light speed on the Internet Tuesday that Paramount is working on an enhanced version of the original 79 Star Trek episodes that it plans to sell as a syndication package to broadcast stations. According to the reports, state-of-the-art visual effects will replace those in the series, new music will be added, and the show will be offered in high definition. Presumably, the new series will also be packaged for sale on high-definition DVD after the syndication package airs. The website DigitalBits, however, observed that "rather than going with a proven effects house, CBS has chosen to do the new CG work in-house. One hopes that they've got someone with REAL Trek effects experience and knowledge involved in the effort -- and they they're taking care to preserve the look and feel of the original shots."
