Re: Would you like a bsg style reboot of Star trek?

Well, I could fall back on that often-used quote 'any technology sufficiently advanced.....

our modern smart phones, with their LCD touch screens and internet, and even just the wireless phone part, would look like pure magic and witchcraft to someone from 100 years ago. People should remember that Star Trek is 'science FICTION' and the fiction part is very important The technology doesn't always have to be intricately explained or even possible in the way it is presented, as long as it has some in-universe consistency and it serves the story. I would also argue that the holodeck and translator are 'magic' to us, but because this is fiction, the writers provide some vague plausible science in the background, and then we just fill in the blanks on our own, or just accept it for what it is, and there is nothing wrong with that . If you can't just enjoy Star Trek for what it is then maybe you just need a bit more of an imagination .
