In that case, why bother to call it Star Trek?
Huh? What should a TV series based on Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek featuring Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock on the Starship Enterprise be called?

I love Star Trek. But I think any new series is best served by shedding the last forty years of continuity and starting over with the basic premise and rebuilding the universe from there.
Definitely. At some point people need to stop equating Berman-Trek with Star Trek. Berman-Trek is based on Star Trek, created by and large by other people, and no more a valid version than any other derivative. I think, though, that many people who call themselves Star Trek fans are really Berman-Trek fans, and they're going to have the hardest time with new derivatives of Star Trek.
