A better question is... should there be one?

Sure, sure, I'm itching for new Trek just like everyone else, but is Trek still relevant today?
More accurately, can Trek be made relevant while remaining Trek?

Are there still new directions to explore?

Isn't it time we just let the franchise die? It had its run, you can't really stretch it forever (IMO).
Been saying the same thing for years. If it's got a way different vibe, but is shoehorned into a universe with Trek names and terminology, it's better to put new wine in new wineskins, as a famous rabbi said.

On the other hand, if it had the same fun, explorey, humane vibe as in much of TOS and TNG, bring it on.
