I'm glad it got a reboot for several reasons:
We were never going to see another TNG movie. The returns just weren't there. Not only that, but there wasn't even the faintest hint of a DS9/VOY/ENT movie, again, because the returns weren't going to be there. TNG was a highly rated TV series, and by their 4th outing, they had fizzled. It happens, but contrary to the wishes of a number of fans, subsequent series movies were not in the cards, and will not happen, not in the usable lifetimes of the actors in said series.
I was thrilled to see the original crew taken in a new direction, and I wasn't disappointed. I think STXI
was exactly what Star Trek needed. Fresh faces, updated technology, and out from under the burden of a top heavy in-universe canon.
I look forward to STXII
. I expect it to be fun, fast paced, and loaded with adventure. I don't think it will disappoint.
