Okay, I think I'm getting this figured out:
1. Trekkies mount an online petition to convince Showtime that they can get a million new subscribers by putting Star Trek on TV.
2. The show is a traditional crew-going-boldly format.
3. The lead character/captain is played by Sigourney Weaver.
4. The rest of the crew is a mix of some familiar, well-liked actors and sexy new faces.
5. Since the series is on Showtime, there is more latitude regarding sex and violence. However, it's still Star Trek
, so it stays basically PG-13ish.
