A series set on an all-Vulcan ship, they could call it: "Star Trek: IDIC"
I'm not sure you've got a ratings winner there.

I think Lenard Nimoy had it easy when he played spock, playing an emotionless character is easy, you just read your lines without any feeling, its doing the emotions that is hard.

Re: What do want to see from a new series

It was a joke. Though just imagine the episode when they get flung back to 2012 and encounter "reality" TV

Though I know they have been in three series, I would like a Vulcan in the next series as well. They are an interesting and complex species, who always provide a different view on things. Perhaps in a very different role than we've seen them in before, Ship's Counsellor perhaps?

A vulcan maybe, but not a ship full of vulcans, that would be too much! I would like a Galaxy class ship flung back to 2012 then the Captain could beam people up and have his own "reality show" with the contestants.

Maddox breaks B4 and as punishment starfleet asigns him to becomes Data's yeoman.

A Data show doesn't have to be live action.

Re: What do want to see from a new series

I don't really care about the form a new Trek series will take. What's important for me is that the new Trek series should return to the optimism that Trek have always had.

I didn't know that it had ever left. But you do need conflict to have a story, otherwise it becomes boring. I think its important not to have everybody cut out of the same starfleet issue cloth.

To have a councilor who feels nothing emotionally themselves, ask you how you feel? That would be interesting.

Re: What do want to see from a new series

Vulcan / Betazoid child?

I've used that in one of my fics before... character who can 'feel' the emotions around her, but is utterly confused and confounded by them as she represses her own...

Re: What do want to see from a new series

- I'd like to see some more 'realistic' physics or at least an acknowledgment that space is 3-dimensional, like what was shown on BSG:
e.g. Moving ships should not come to a complete stop or even slow down when they lose power; ships should be able to simply 'flip' using thrusters when turning around, particularly in battle; a group of ships should not be able to 'blockade' a planet when they're all on just one side of it.

- NO Brannon Braga - no more writers who paint themselves into a corner for 40 minutes then just slap on a technobabble resolution - writers should know from the beginning where their script is headed, thats writing 101. Besides, Braga probably can't even book flights now without getting them canceled. Put up force fields, orbital cannon platforms, whatever it takes to keep him away from a Trek production.

- No more forehead-of-the-week aliens, who pretty much live exactly the way humans do; let's meet more really alien aliens; the milky way has been around billions of years; I'm sure there are plenty of species that evolved on different timetables. At the very least, the different humanoid species, despite being supposedly 'planted' by the same beings, should have evolved in a larger variety of ways, beyond what types of food they eat and the color of their ships.

That's what I thought. They don't express their emotions but do have them, they choose to control them and follow a path of logic. There was that VOY episode where Tuvok helped analyse Kim's infatuation on a 'hologram'.

If they did go this route, I'd like it to be a male Vulcan so that there was a man as ship's counsellor (Troi jumpsuit optional ).

Federation post-apocalypse. It's all got to fall apart sooner or later... I'd like to see what the Alpha Quadrant will be like after everything has gone to hell, and how it'll be put back together again.

Re: What do want to see from a new series

I'd like to see something that actually moves away from the standard ship & crew format we've seen for five series and eleven movies. They've got a whole universe to work with, but most people seem to want different variations of the same standard formula.

And nothing like a Trek Law and Order, or Trek CSI. Come up with something more original than doing another genre within the Trek universe.

You seem to contradict yourself, asking for a very rehashed genre/format but in a Trek style.

A CSI Trek wouldn't work, the level of technology makes it pretty redundant.

A non-standard Trek would really need to be original in its approach and execution. So long as they had good characters and stories, it really could be set anywhere. But they need to repair the damage done by VOY and ENT and get viewers back to Trek.

Re: What do want to see from a new series

I'm not asking for a rehashed genre in a Trek style, I'm saying steer clear of it. Doing things that have been done for is not the way to make Trek prosper again.
