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.
I think heaven is what you make it. When I close my eyes for the final time, I hope to wake up standing in a grassy, breezy, sunlit field, a green tennis ball at my feet, and a little black lab, with a white diamond on her chest, running right towards me.
