Re: If they made a 25th century TV series, would you watch it?

Wow, by that logic TOS never should've gotten off the ground in the 60's. Everyone should've wanted a Buck Rogers reboot.
Oh Jesus Christ. Star Trek
was unique on the entertainment landscape in 1966, it wasn't just riding the coattails of success from something else called Star Trek
. Is it too much to ask to want something new and different that is as unique to the current entertainment landscape as Star Trek
was in 1966?
I love Star Trek, it was probably more responsible for the person I became than any other factor (including my parents). But I'm willing to let it go. I want there to be new TV series and movies that capture my imagination as much as Trek has. I don't want the networks and studios to just keep going to the same well over and over and over again until I die.
