Re: How about a "trapped in the past/future" Trek?

I'd have to vote NO on this one, because where do you really go with it?

You can't be trapped in the past, because then the crew knows too much about what's going on, their tech can magically solve any problem they need, etc Not exciting, and no drama.

So they'd HAVE to be trapped in the future. And after a few 'fish out of water' episodes, how do you keep it going? They'd adapt, or disappear and there's no show. So why not just set it in the future to begin with and skip the time travel?

Plus, no less than a billion ways shown to time travel in Star Trek, so how do you make it convincing?

It's an ok episode or two-parter, but it's not a series...
