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

Unless they're Digital Domain. Not that a Trek show would ever be getting the kind of budget necessary to do that though.

For instance, the live action ones generally have terrible acting. No idea why - is there really a shortage of talented out of work actors?
I think there's more to it than just acting. A large part probably has to do with directing as well, in which case a lot of people fancy themselves as directors, but are really just average at it, and not talented like the people who are paid for it in Hollywood. Hell, even people in Hollywood who are paid for it can take talented actors and sometimes make them so wooden.
