Re: why is there no more talk of a new star trek tv series?

SyFy just went space opera happy today, announcing the development of 5 series set in space out of a total of 7.

Plus the Blake's 7 remake/reboot/rewhatever, which already has a series order. Plus Ringworld as a miniseries. There could be two or even three space operas on SyFy in the not too distant future.

That's a positive sign in that, if even SyFy is turning their noses up at space opera, what hope does it have elsewhere? If one of these shows becomes a Walking Dead type runaway hit, then that will be even better - something to prove that space opera is not just viable on TV but The Hot New Thing.

EDIT: just watched Star Trek: Aurora up there. Should be Star Trek: The Uncanny Valley because I couldn't bear to look at more than two seconds of those creepy mannequins. Until/unless animation of humans can be truly believable, it's best to stick to a certain degree of cartoonishness.
