Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

Trek was arguably overdue for a reboot . . . and where's the harm in that?
It was the only way to even make it interesting. As far as I know, no other franchise has to hire people to research its own fictional history so they don't contradict anything. It's a rich history and full of detail, but at a certain point it becomes a prison and the number of interesting stories become limited.

A part of me thinks that a series set in the prime universe's future could work. Maybe have the Federation collapse or focus more on alien races, but it really wouldn't be Star Trek anymore. The series was at it's best when it was humanity dealing with something, but never letting our worst aspects control us.
