Re: State of Trek according to Entertainment Weekly
IMO the reason Star Trek will never make a successful return to TV in the near future is because of the rabid fanbase, it can make your project a success but its too dam hard to please.
I've got to agree with you there.
A movie blockbuster can happen even if the hardcore minority of Trek's fans are pissed. STiD is proof of that.
But a TV show can only survive if it has a fanbase that is loyal. Trek fans are so splintered, they couldn't even agree on...
... Hell! They couldn't agree on a damn thing...
So - New movie in 2016, but no chance of a new series within the next decade I'd say.
Now that I've seen it, and have also had time to mellow, to really think about it, I now find it absolutely, unbearably repulsive in every way except for some of the acting. - about The Wrath of Khan. Interstat, Issue 62: 1982
