Re: No reason the current cast couldn't do a TV series.

Give Whedon or the folks who did "Farscape" budgets equivalent to what's spent on junk like "Stargate" and let them produce a TOS-era version of "Star Trek" for the SCI-FI Channel.
The thing would inevitably pull better ratings than BSG or "Stargate" - even if only a single ratings point - and make everyone involved happy.
The flaw in that plan, of course, is that those kind of creative folks would always be more interested in their own original concepts than in taking over "Star Trek."
Yes, I'm thinking of a scenario not far from this. I doubt JJ will wanna do TV by then, I think he's more interested in directing, however I would be thrilled to see Orci be the show runner. I think he'd be thrilled too.
