What do you think Star Trek will do for its 50th anniversary?
 
Doctor Who did a fair amount for its 50th anniversary, what do you think people behind Star Trek will do for its 50th anniversary?

Star Trek XIII maybe? They'll be crazy not to release a new movie in time for the anniversary.

Hopefully, Trek XIII will be released that year, but really, I'm not sure what all can be done. Without an active TV series, I don't see them doing the kind of hoopla Doctor Who did. The tie-ins will go to town with special novels and comics released for the event, and maybe a special retrospective will air on TV with interviews with all the actors and what not. Otherwise, I don't think much will be done or even can be done.

Light cigars with $100 bills? Pick up prostitutes? I have no idea, I've never been to Hollywood. What The People Behind Star Trek should do is produce a Star Trek: Christmas Special that was as hilarious and enjoyable as the Star Wars Holiday Special. I don't think Bea Arthur is that busy these days.

An animated series set between Trek II and Trek III would be nice. If they don't spend all the birthday money on cocaine and strippers.

Looking forward to it! :D

A giant convention.

A new movie is pretty much all I expect.
Hopefully some comics and special novels to extend the anniversary beyond the new universe to include the original universe in the party. Probably be an assortment of special merchandise.

Well we suspect the next movie will be out in 2016(after all it's a marketeing dream), and I suppose there is also a remote possibility of a new Trek TV show either being announced or airing in 2016.

Rerelease all existing merchandise with a 50th Anniversary Edition logo on the box but the exact same content. :bolian:

Someone needs to build a very high fidelity full-sized powered Enterprise shuttlecraft. With a metallic hull. Take it out to the entrance to Area 51 in the middle of the night. Set it up like it has crash-landed. Leave a note by the door that says "Gone for fuel. Be back soon." And wait for the highjinks of the government and the conspiracy theorists to ensue.

SyFy might have a marathon ... woo hoo.

Star Trek XIII, continuing the adventures of Kirk, Spock and company after the events of Into Darkness. Paramount are aiming for a 2016 release.

Some kind of special big novelverse event.

Some retrospective nonfiction books about Trek.

Maybe a third fanfilm from the makers of Of Gods and Men and Renegades, bringing back a couple of original cast members, providing the latter doesn't turn out to be a total disaster.

A third movie from the makers of OGAM and Renegades would be nice to include the original universe Trek in the anniversary year.

Did that already. It's at Space Center Houston.

Most is pretty obvious, and been covered; new movie, TV special (documentary-type), novel event, comic event, more trading cards, and of course a slew of new (or repackaged) merchandise.
If the thread was 'What do you want for the Star Trek 50th anniversary', the answer would be a lot different. But, as we say back on earth, c'est la vie!

All of it? That would be one hell of a huge mountain of stuff!

Personally, I'd like to get the two collector's spoons I missed out on (McCoy and Scotty), as well as the old 8" action figures I don't have (the originals, not the obvious fakes).
