Re: If you were creating a TOS Prequel, how would you do it?
Sensibilities and technology have changed too much since the late sixties to create a prequel that could fit in with it. And I say this as a die hard Star Trek: The Original Series
It has been very clear that a hard reboot was needed as early as 2001.
