Re: Paramount's Brad Grey Wants to Build a TV Studio

^But the more detached ST gets from a plausible future, the further it drifts from the forward-looking, relevant science fiction it was intended to be, and the more it becomes an exercise in nostalgia and retro sci-fi like the way we see Flash Gordon today. ST is supposed to be about looking forward, not clinging to the past. The meaning should be more important than the trappings. So a wholesale reinvention, updating the concepts and tech while preserving the core characterizations and themes, would be more faithful to its intent than just perpetually clinging to the pulp-era technological trappings of the original.
