Re: Making a Star Trek series that fits in with today's TV landscape
Modern market? If you're going network? Reality Trek.
Build a partial mock up of the Enterprise. Fill it full of Trekkies, give them "Missions" to do: This week "A virus breaks out on the ship and the crew must find a cure!"; "Next: One of the crew is a murder, who is it? You'll never guess!". Every week, one gets promoted, another gets "lost in a terrible transporter accident". Get William Shatner to play Captain Kirk
That makes Baby Jesus cry. But you're probably right.
