People seem to keep talking about an animated show, for some reason. I think it's a terrible idea. In theory it could be great, but in practice the Western perception of animated material is almost universally that it's only appropriate for comedy and kids' shows. I know you're suggesting that it be aimed at kids, C.E. Evans, but personally I have no interest in kids' shows generally, and not at all in a Trek-based kids' show.
I'm not saying that it couldn't succeed commercially, mind you, just that I very much doubt I'd watch it.
It wouldn't be aimed at you, but rather at kids and those that are still kids at heart and would watch an animated series just as much they would a live-action one.
In regards to kids, though, it would be a way of reaching out to a different demographic and diversifying and expanding the Trek brand the same way Star Wars and the various comic book superhero properties have.
