Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

Well in case you missed the last 20 years. They tried that with DS9, VOY and ENT. Each one lost audiences to the point where it wasn't worth it to keep it on the air.
What?

I mean... what?

The modern Star Trek that started with the Kirk and Spock-less TNG pilot and ended with ENT finale ran for well over a decade. It is by any measure, hugely successful to have gained 25 seasons. Sure, the ratings were terrible by the end but... so? No show is going to be successful forever. Same thing happened with Doctor Who.

No show that ran for 25 seasons had a lack of audience in my book. To say there's not been an appetite for non-Kirk and Spock Trek is entirely untrue and flies in the face of my generation, who almost all prefer Picard to Kirk.

Don't bring things into a discussion if you're not prepared to defend them. You thought you could drop a snarky comment and people would simply ignore it?
Huh....I don't even...
