Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

I don't remember if I posted in this thread or not, as it's 57 pages, so I'm answering (possibly again).

Yes, the reboot was necessary. Star Trek had become stolid and mired in back breaking canon that left no room for innovation, save to head further into the future, and further away from the relatability that the near future had to offer. By rebooting, a fresh, new lease on the franchise was given, and the end result was a drastic increase in the mainstream popularity of Star Trek. We also got some nice, updated technology, and some updated characters while still making homages to the originals.

All in all, great move.
