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:

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.

I reckon since Orci is involved with the new movies they'd be using that universe. Obviously it'd have to be a different ship since it'd be too expensive to use the movie cast and recasting them (again) wouldn't work. The good thing is then unlike the movies they could actually do some trekking!

Personally, I think the time is right for a new Star Trek series. However, I think it would be a good idea to focus on a completely new ship and characters, but set it in J.J. Abrams rebooted universe.


New ship, new crew, new attitude.
no need to have the movies tie in to it.

I'm a TNG girl all the way. Though I'll admit, without the original cast, if they just rebooted it, I probably wouldn't like it. It'll be exciting--if it happens--to see where they go with it. :D

New ship and characters! Any time period would work. Yes, I'll watch anything...

Mo, geezer, my old mate, how ya` doin` ! ?. Go to "Anal Base-Gaping Anal" and "Anal Base-POV Anal" for literally hundreds of pictures and movie clips of beautiful gorgeous sexy young girls being buggered senseless ! ! !.

Mo, would you agree that when Pauline Hickey was 17 in 1985 she was THE most gorgeous bird of all-time ! ?.

Mo, what kind of porn do you like ?, i prefer the Windows Vista Media Centre clips, the same 5 or 6 thrusts of the dick in and out of the birds bum over and over again or the same 5 or 6 squirts of spunk into the birds gob over and over again, somehow i find it easier to jerk-off to the repetition of those clips rather than watching the entire movies, perhaps because the clips essentially represent and constitute such beautifully encapsulated and perfectly modulated masturbation-aids par-excellence (as it were), where-as the complete movies can be much more eratic in their content both with regards to actual quality and type of scene on veiw.

Go further into the future and make it all new! But for gosh sake, no more fist fights! So fake and so juvenile Ugh!

jervaise brooke hamster said...

Imagine a Star Trek reality TV style cookery contest in which, instead of being given a mini-kitchen and selection of ingredients, each contestant stands in front of a replicator.
