The introduction of Mr. Spock last season on the sleek CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery may be the first in many new frontiers for the fabled franchise now that the Paramount-owning Viacom and CBS are boldly going toward corporate reunification.

Taking a page from the now Fox-expanded Disney book, new ViacomCBS kingpin Bob Bakish made very clear just now on today’s investor call that the Star Trek and the Mission Impossible franchises have significant potential to leverage “across all the companies’ platforms.” Soon-to-be CBS CEO Joe Ianniello hit the drum hard himself when he added with an international angle that “scale is becoming more and more important all the time.”

I Call Bull: They clearly wish that it will be but no way it has the legs to go after that crown
