Re: series 6,, what will it be like

^That's the problem with certain elements of the current fanbase, though -- they become so focused on the technology and the idea that the technology needs to "move forward" (when all it really does is become more technobabbly, e.g. Voyager and some latter-day TNG) that they forget the show is supposed to be about the stories and the characters. Trek could just as easily be set on a sailing ship like the one in the Horatio Hornblower novels Roddenberry used for inspiration when developing the original show.

Of course, then we'd have complaints that the new Enterprize only has two masts, whereas the previous one had three, so obviously we're backsliding technologically...
"They quickly settled on the slender island at the head of the bay, which they called 'Mannahatta', after an old Indian word thought by some to mean 'island of hills', and by others 'place of general inebriation'."
