Re: Re-booting TNG For TV?

In my opinion, TNG's ship has sailed..and no amount of wishful thinking will bring it back as it was at this time.. as TOS was a product of turbulent scary times (check out the headlines from 1960s for an idea) TNG was conceived in a period of optimism in the United States, that forward thinking appears to be lacking today. JJ's Trekverse, like TOS, is rooted in it's time, a period of uncertainty in the United States but, as past history shows, periods of uncertainty are always followed with optimism..if that happens, THEN we may get something like TNG (and only if the powers that be feel they can make a quick buck)
