Re: What channel should a new Trek TV series be on?

Broadcast networks should be a firm "no way in hell" from the very beginning unless you want the show to be cancelled quickly. Aside from the fluke that was TNG (which came in at the right place at the right time), Trek has never been a real ratings hit on TV except in syndication where small numbers (by broadcast standards) are considered gold there...

IMO, SyFy probably is the best bet for a new Trek series, although I actually wouldn't rule out My Network TV or even first-run syndication again (when you think about it, Trek has still been running in syndication--in one form or the other--ever since TOS reruns first arrived there)...
