How would you make a new Star Trek TV series?
It's time for the results of last times poll and the new question.
This week news broke that Star Trek producer Bob Orci is shopping around a new Star Trek series.
Sky News reporter Joe Michalczuk tweeted the following:
Bob Orci just told me they've had a meeting with CBS to revive @StarTrek on TV...This made me v excited

There hasn't been a new episode of Star Trek on televisions since 2005 with the last episode of the Star Trek: Enterprise TV show. That ended an unbroken run of 18 years of new Star Trek shows beginning with Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987.
Of course, the movies are more popular than ever thanks to the J.J. Abrams films and the time seems right to create a new Star Trek TV Series.
This may or may not be big news. After all, when asked about a new Star Trek series J.J. Abrams said, "What I've been told from the powers that be [at CBS] is that they are not interested." Part of this is because of an extremely complicated rights issue between CBS and Paramount. But, assuming they work all that out, it's an exciting idea.
So here's the question: How should they create a new Star Trek Series? Old, new or reboot? Bring the Star Trek TV cast back or start fresh?
The results of last week's poll - Could This Fan-Made Wonder Woman Short Lead to a Movie? - is No, the short wouldn't lead to a Wonder Woman movie. Quite a few said they didn't like the short. I agree that, while it's stylistic, it doesn't have much of a story.
