Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

Eh, it wouldn't be directly tied to Nemesis or anything. I just want something set 100 years after the TNG/DS9/VOY era. It'd essentially be a reboot as the world would have to be re-introduced to fans and casuals alike.
Agreed, that would've been much more interesting than just reshuffling the old deck of cards with some flashy action sequences.
TNG and beyond was nothing more than 'shuffling the cards.'

Look, none of the supposed 'continuity' makes any sense whatsoever. Nothing lines up and the progression of technology is virtually static. Sure, the writers gave different bafflegab names to the tech on-screen, but in both TOS and TNG+, we had starships going at ludicrous speeds that used energy weapons and teleportation. The 'world' built up by the sheer aggregation of Trek detritus over the years is not a living, breathing universe but rather the same story, stuck on repeat.

At least Trek '09 had the balls to actually turn back the clock and not pretend that everything in Trek existed in the same universe.
Some say that if you get Amazon Prime he will hand-deliver your packages during a powerslide in a classic Jag and that he's paid with bottles of octane booster.

All we know is, he's not The Stig but he is The Stig's non-trademarked generic cousin.
