Star Trek was a wonderful thing 1966-1969. Or 1987-1994 if you prefer. But creating a new tv series and calling it Trek appeals to me zero. IF it had a similar ethos of wonder and expkoration and fun and sci-fi, I'd consider it. Would that happen in 2014 or whatever?
Not really true. How corny did the title "Battlestar Galactica" sound in 2003? Very corny, yet viewers decidedly looked pasted the name that carried a lot of geeky-stigma and realized, "Hey, this show is cool."

Heck! Why don't we talk about ST09? You can reinvent a concept while still keeping it relatively similar to the original, it doesn't matter what year we are in.
Both of those symbolize what I mean. Old name. Old character names. Very dif from original. Why recycle names? (Money, I suppose.) I just have no need for some new thing that happens to be titled Star Trek.
