Giving TREK to...
 
Who? Presuming JJ Abrams is out, to whom should Star Trek be entrusted next? Either television or movies.

Abrams is under contract for one more movie as I understand, so he's not out yet for another three or four years.

He's already out as director, but his Bad Robot company will be producing the film with Orci and Kurtzman coming back to write.

Next up? Andrew Stanton. Whatever universe he's playing in, he seems to know how to bring the best out of it.

Russell T. Davies in charge of Trek - turning it into some lame Doctor Who-like pseudo-fantasy. I literally shudder at the very thought.

If you've ever seen Torchwood, you'd know that Davies would be pretty awesome at the helm, although I'd pray to God they give it to Ronald D. Moore.

You sure about that? Considering what he did to BSG, I don't think to many fans would be happy with what he'd do to Trek. Besides, we did dark and gritty: we had DS9.

You know, the whole premise behind BSG pretty much screams "dark and gritty."

Just as DW pretty much is a pseudo-science fantasy.

If they gave it to Sorkin it would be really talky. A lot of fans might like that. :lol:

I know a lot of the old school BSG fans didn't like the new one. My mom was so fiercely loyal to the old one she didn't even make it through the first miniseries. But I, who had never really taken old school BSG seriously, consider the remade BSG to be the best sci-fi series I've ever seen, and I'm a DEVOUT Trekkie! So, for me, I'd say I'm sure about Moore. I like his style. And while I think that DS9 is dark and gritty, I recently re-watched it, after having watched BSG and FireFly, Dr. Who, and Torchwood, that it wasn't really gritty at all. It was a soap opera. It kinda made me sad, because DS9 was my favorite series, and it still is, but Star Trek, in general, under Rick Berman seemed to be so predicable and formulaic. They tried to change things up. Some of the producers really tried to rock the boat, but what led to the demise of Enterprise, I feel, was how predicable and formulaic it was. That's why ST09 was such a breath of fresh air in a way. I think Moore can do that with Star Trek. He did with BSG, and he's involved and responsible enough to "respect" the canon when and wherever it's concerned, but not to use it as a crutch. All of the other guys could, too. Don't get me wrong. But personally, I like Moore's style.

I'd want someone to weird the fuck out of it. I'd love to see someone like Grant Morrison come along and totally deconstruct the whole thing.

The guys who did "Firefly"?
