Well, as much as I'd hate to say it, other then fan produced movies and stories, I'm thinking trek is going to be dead for a while. We might get a show that is similar to it, but not quite the same.
Doubtful.

1) Pocket Books is still going strong with no signs of slowing.

2) New comics being produced. Trek comics always seem to be going on. Granted, they have changed hands a number of times over many years, but there is usually not more than a year lull between new ones.

3) New movie coming out. If anything that doesn't suggest "dead" to me. And that movie also has had some pretty good internet buzz/anticipation. Granted, the movie might be bad. However, I get the feeling that it'll sell enough tickets to warrant a sequel (I could be wrong about ticket sales, but I think it is more likely it'll do financially well than not).

There will always be a new desire for more Trek. Even if Trek '08 bombs, TPTB will try to find a new way to market it.

Ok, let me be more descriptive in my statements. Believe me, I love trek. I've watched it for as long as I can remember, and I don't want to see it go. But from my point of view trek is dwindling.

1)The books are great, I read all the ones I can get my hands on, but there really aren't any original stories. And what used to be two, or even three new books a month, has slowed down quite considerably.

2) The show. Granted, ENT wasn't the shortest, but it's a step down from how long TNG, DS9, and VOY lasted. I was hoping for more, even to the last couple of episodes I was thinking it still had a chance, but the one thing that could have saved it didn't happen. The one thing that saved TOS from being taken off the air after one season, didn't save ENT. No one seemed to care.

3)The movie, I pray to the gods that its going to be better then nemesis. I had probably higher hopes for nemesis then most. I was thinking it would be a closer look into the romulan culture, instead we get an adolescent temper tantrum turned into an attempt to rebel against the man who was essentially his father. Now we have the possability of a young kirk telling his academy instructors where to stick it in a space aged Alpha Centari Hills-90210. If it goes that way, I dont see a lot in the way of tv or movie versions of star trek being made.


Like I said, I really hope that doesn't happen. I myself have ideas on what I would like to see for season 6, as I've posted here. I just wish there was a way we could get paramount to come read the boards, cause there are a lot of great ideas. Here and in the fan fic, and fan production boards.

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

Enterprise-B would be the best era,striking the best balance between too advanced and not advanced enough.

The ship itself looks magnificent,even though that idiot Carseon
only gave us a few shots.

If the movie is a success I suspect that a tv series would be set around the time of TOS or perhaps slightly before.
And it'll just get cancelled again after 4 seasons like Enterprise did. Think about it first.


Anyways...if the movie does succeeds and a new trek series comes a couple years after that, I hope the series takes place where it left on, about a few years after Star Trek Nemesis (I say start it around 2385 or 2386). It would be nice to have a few trek series to finish off the 24th century.

Other than that, what we need is a few trek series based on the Enterprise B, Enterprise C and a series about Picard being the captian of the Stargazer (there is a big gap between 2293 and 2363 that would need a few trek series to fill in that gap). That is something we probably would like to see eh?

I actually agree.

There is at least a 20-30 year gap of time where the adventures of the Enterprise-B could take place.

We have no idea of its history aside from that abortive shakedown mission.

It could've been sent into deep space on an exploration mission for years.

It could've been the flagship of an armada on a mission to deal with a new alien threat.

Heck it could've made first contact with the Cardassians, Breen and alot of other races we saw later.

It could've done all three.

The choices are endless.

I hear it would make a nice hotel, too.

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

Im guessing that if the film goes well it would be set within the new TOS era. I think it would be good as they could keep the fresh feel and way the universe can run without thinking "oh its going to be ok we know Earth is around in TNG" like there was with Enterprise.

Personally Id set it on a ship slightly smaller than the 1701 but which still looks like that ship (not a scaled down version)

This is all going on the assumption that this renewed universe will be slightly different to how the current one has played out...and the assumption that it will be good.

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

It hardly matters what any of us think really.

The movie will not do well in the box office compared to what they are spending on it.

In my opinion

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

Since I mentioned Enterprise C in my post there...would that as a series do well?

It could.

Though we know the ship really goes down at Narendra in 2044 or so, it could've been in service for a decade or more before that.

WTF! the Ent-C goes down at Nerendra before the 3rd world war, before warp is developed and before first contact with the Vulcans?

Dont you mean 2344?

OK - we will never see any trek on television again referring as anything except trivia to Deep Space Nine. I love the show but pretty much everyone who watched it posts here and that colours the true public perception of the show, typical conversation: -

Dude 1: "I like deep Space Nine"
Dude 2: "That the cheesy one?"
Dude 1: "No thats the original series"
Dude 2: "Oh - is that the bald guy then?"
Dude 1: "No, its the one with the arcs and the war, the Dominion etc"
Dude 2: "..."
Dude 1: "The black guy, its the one with the black guy.."
Dude 2: "Oh I saw that once, I didnt like it.."
Are you crazy!!! everybody loves DS9!!! Its the best series out of them all!!!

It could have if we didnt know what happened to it, every time it gets shot up you know it will survive because you know exactly how it is eventually destroyed

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

It all seems pretty straightforward to me. If the movie is a success, expect a series just like it.

If the movie flops I would expect them to go back to the most recent, successful Trek. That would be TNG/DS9/Voy.

I think that they should only do movies this point in time. With all the series episodes that have already been broadcast, another series just might be overkill.

I love DS9, you clearly do, and most of the several hundred posters on this messgae board do - but as far as its profile even as a Sci-Fi show goes, especially outside the the fan community - its basically unknown.

Your average joe actually has the icons of TOS (Kirk and Spock) in their head, they would probably recorgnise Picard, maybe Data, but DS9 or even Voyager? No way.

Certainly there is no way you will see a major new series relying on even a tiny portion of DS9s story, maybe a cute reference but nothing more.
