Isn't it time we just let the franchise die? It had its run, you can't really stretch it forever (IMO).
Have we stopped retelling fairytales, like "The Three Little Pigs", fables like "The Hare and the Tortoise", Shakespearean plays, "Zorro", "Tarzan", "Sherlock Holmes", "Superman", "Batman", "Spiderman", "James Bond 007"?

Why should "Star Trek" die? It's modern mythology.
I don't want it to die. I just don't want it to mutate into something way different and call itself Star Trek. An analogy would be if you took Superman and made him all gritty and dark. Or told a story with three pigs in it that had nothing to do with preparedness and planning ahead. I'd love to see some real Star Trekkish Trek come back on. animated is the most cost effective way. Experts on this board say it's not gonna happen. OK, then. I'll watch my old dvd's. Be well.
