Re: 53 Reasons Why We Need a New Star Trek TV Series

Believe me people complain about too much of those shows being bad as well. When the 2 CSI spin offs were announced peope bitched, ditto NCIS's spin off. Uusualy it's portrayed as "too many procedural cop shows!" instead of individual shows.

Re: 53 Reasons Why We Need a New Star Trek TV Series

There's a certain Channel 5 here in Britain, that's showing four CSI episodes back-to-back tonight. Does anybody really need that much CSI? One's excusable, if it's not a repeat. I doubt it's even much to do with ratings frankly. More simply filling up timeslots until the folks with nocturnal gambling addictions awake.

Re: 53 Reasons Why We Need a New Star Trek TV Series

Any modern sci-fi far future series is useless without tackling issues raised by transhumanism, nanotech, and a technological singularity type event. The Defenders series on Sci Fi channel may be the first to deal with it on a lateral level. There's your next Star Trek series:

Re: 53 Reasons Why We Need a New Star Trek TV Series

I can really only propose what I think and believe.

If we were to do trek one more time, make it TOS era and if we want to start afresh than make it one of the other connie-class Starships with fresh characters.

One of the BIG mistakes Enterprise made, IMO, was that they used TNG and the shows that followed as a template for pre-TOS stuff. The singular Helm station, the TNG ripoff on the jumpsuits, the Captain's Ready Room....it didn't to me register as TOS inspired stuff. Sure, they had the grapple instead of a tractor beam but they still had one foot in the thinking and direction of the other post TOS shows.....and it bled through.

I want to see less soap, less political correctness. I want to see them avoid the techno babble weak endings, the preaching from the Captain's Ready Room and the wall dressing female character interpretations.

Of course this isn't the flawed 1960's and of course some would want to see today's thinking thrown into such a venture, but if that must be how it is done than I for one am happy to NOT see such an undertaking take place. For me they got it right 79 times straight. After that it was hit or miss....and there were far more forgotten efforts that neither hit nor missed.....that were bland, weak, watered down and uninspired than I can possibly remember.

Just my two cents.
