But usually a reboot is done when a franchise is ailing to begin with. Rebooting Trek is like trying to redesign a bird, or a great bird in this case. It ought not be done. I don't know how the history of TOS interferes with a prequil. I would think that 'baggage' as RDM so quaintly put it, would enhance it. The blind (bling?) leading the blind. Ship of fools and the golden goose. Now more like the keystone cops and little lord fonteroy (except he's sadistic) with a little of the good son (McCauley Culkin?) thrown in.
