Re: A Nova Squad or Red Squad Series

A cadet-oriented series might work, just so long as it isn't actually about Red Squad or groups of its ilk. Red Squad was, IIRC, formed as part of Admiral Leyton's plan in DS9, to help him take over the Federation. So I would argue that the very concept behind Red Squad is inherently corrupt.

If they want to do a TV series about Starfleet cadets, they should make it about "real" ones who don't join an elite group believing itself to be superior.
