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

I love B5 and most of JMS run on Spider-Man, but his idea for a Star Trek reboot didn't sit well with me. The most important reason is that he seemed too interested in making it JMS-Trek rather than Star Trek produced by JMS. Though he may not have liked the 24th century shows, the least he could admit was that they further solidified a universe that offers a lot of possibilities for storyteling. No need to throw that away with the rest of the garbage. You can set your Star Trek show in the 'existing' 24th century and keep references to the other shows to a minimum, the old-time fans will be pleased and you can do almost everything you want at the same time.

Star Trek is bigger than just one producer's vision.
