Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

But, rightly or wrongly, there was a perception out there in the general public that Star Trek was too "complicated" for ordinary people, that you needed to be a hardcore Trekkie with a degree in Klingon linguistics to understand the shows. I used to run into this attitude all the time at family reunions, Fourth of July barbecues, etc.
QFT.

Star Trek wasn't cool. Being a Trekkie certainly wasn't in vogue. Most people I would know would struggle to distinguish between any of the Next Generation era series. The volume of material and perceived "technicality" made for a product not easily accessible to regular folk.

When your product isn't accessible to the majority, it's not going to reach it's profit potential.
