The OP asked about a series starring Greenwood Pike.
I know. That's my point really: Greenwood is the New Trek Pike. But then, somehow, some people want the old Pike. Old Pike's gone, people.

Greenwood did fine with the role, but his Pike's function was as Kirk's mentor, and now that's done. Plus, I think the lead in any new series should be younger than pushing 60.
Also interesting: Jeff Hunter was born in 26 and thus was 38 when The Cage was made. Now, that episode was supposedly in 2254. ST09 is in 2258, 4 years later, yet Pike is played by an actor who was 53 at the time.
And that's my opinion.
