Re: If annother Trek series was being made, what would you want in it?

A series based on a ship with an All-Vulcan crew would be nice, like the one in ds9's 'Take me out to the Holosuites'.

I don't know. Seems to me a series like that might, well, lack emotion . . . .

io9 has an article up:
10 Things We Want From a New Star Trek TV Show

their number 1 choice was 1) More Artificial Intelligence which I also would like to see. I made a thread a number of months ago in Future of Trek about it.
artificial intelligence/computer, android, robots

Re: If annother Trek series was being made, what would you want in it?

Some of the io9 commenters had the good idea that an AI character in a future Trek series shouldn't at all have any kind of Pinocchio/Tin Man complex. That is, an AI character that isn't there to extoll the virtues of humanity and aspire to be human. That opens up a can of worms you can't explore with a character like Data, Doctor, or Seven.

Re: If annother Trek series was being made, what would you want in it?

I had said that I wanted a Pike series, and now from the Trekmovie comments:

23. Plump Spider - July 28, 2012

I would like a TV series about Pike’s time on the Enterprise, starring Greenwood.

Followed up with:

25. boborci - July 28, 2012

23. Me, too!

Now we know that he's been looking into the possibility of a new series, so if he wants a Pike series then that could be one of his ideas. Bruce Greenwood does do TV work.

Re: If annother Trek series was being made, what would you want in it?

One thing I would like to see more of in the next Trek series would be characters out of uniform. After their shift, off ship, etc, see them in civvies, away from the confines of the uniform and enjoying themselves.

Is it just me that finds it odd that so many people would stay in uniform for a night out in Ten Forward or Quarks?

A female Orion crewmember. Tired of ice princess/sex godesses. Give us somebody who not only promises, but delivers.

Jeffrey Combs, as a human, possibly the ships doctor.

Re: If annother Trek series was being made, what would you want in it?

I would love a show similar to what I read in the novel Articles of the Federation. A political show based in Paris that shows how the Government can effectively run a Federation as vast and diverse as the UFP. There are numerous ways to incorporate issues from Nemesis and the Dominion war as major influences to the political landscape of the Apha/Beta Quadrant. There is also room for guest stars from the other T.V. shows/movies. How does the Federation work in concert with Stafleet, how do major decisions get deliberated amongst the council, how does Section 31 insert itself into current events. I think it would be a fresh new take on Star Trek.

I"m tired of aliens. How about an all human main cast for the series?

Yeah and they should all be white men too, preferably of Christian doctrine. j/k

Star Trek without aliens would be like Dark Shadows without vampires.

I don't see the point.

My preference but not a priority.

Never said "without aliens" Greg.

I said "main cast".

One could argue that Phlox and T'pol didn't add much to Enterprise (and that T'pol actually hurt the series).

How do people like you end up Star Trek fans to begin with?

It was actually Trinneer, Billingsley and Blalock that propped the series up for much of its run (the rest were cardboard). Two of those three played aliens.

But where's the fun in that? Can you imagine TOS without Spock? He was the most popular character! Or TNG without Worf? Or DS9 without Quark or Odo or Dax or Kira? Or Voyager without the EMH or Seven of Nine?

If you want an all-human cast, why not just watch Law & Order?

Star Trek has always welcomed regular characters from strange new worlds and new civilizations. That's kind of its mission statement.

I mean, what on Earth (or Vulcan) do you gain by getting rid of all the cool alien regulars? They're usually the most interesting ones!

(And I'm not going to even touch the white, Christian men thing. Star Trek ditched that "preference" almost fifty years ago--and good riddance!)
