Re: How Would You Reboot TNG Into The Abrams-Verse?

I think a TNG reboot would stick very closely to what the characters were like in the first season (with Picard being very snappish and Geordi having a flip sense of humor), but both the action content and Troi's cleavage would be increased significantly. Wesley would be a Starfleet cadet; Yar would be tactical chief with Worf as security chief; and there would be nothing remotely coy about the relationship between Picard and Crusher. Riker would be clean-shaven at the start of the movie, but would have the first signs of a beard towards the end. Data would be undeniably the ship's sciences officer.

The uniforms would be similar in style to ones from season three onward, but the branch colors would be noticeably darker in color. The props--such as phasers and tricorders--would be sleeker, but otherwise unchanged in overall design. The Enterprise-D herself would be slightly longer and wider, but would still have a wide saucer section and somewhat swept-forward nacelles.

And there will be Borg--and a new adversary even worse than the Borg that will remind us that going where no one has gone before sometimes comes with a price...

Re: How Would You Reboot TNG Into The Abrams-Verse?

Well we wouldn't measure speed by warp but rather parsecs, the Klingons would be developing some sort of death star, deep space 9 would simply be known as cloud city and we don't have a prime directive because the federation are the galactic peacekeepers.

You forgot the part that he jumps out of the car just as the car falls off a cliff.

TNG doesn't need a bloody reboot!
Have to agree TNG doesn't need a reboot, but it's just a bit of fun so I'll bite.

Picard - More French. More of its culture and language, rather than a wannabe Englishman. Make him very much a statesman, great at diplomacy and pontificating.
Riker - Younger and cockier. If Kirk can go from Cadet to Lieutenant to Captain, Riker has to at least skipped from Ensign to Commander. Buffer and hotter as well.
B. Crusher - Make her sassier, more of a foil for Picard. A firey and passionate redhead who is always willing to stand up to him. Ramp up the will they/won't they sexual tension.
Data - Make him less robotic from the beginning (he's been in Starfleet for 20 odd years by now). Have him serve as the ship's Science Officer.
Troi - Attractive and alluring, but also needs to be taken seriously. Make more use of her empathic and/or telepathic abilities. Again more sexual tension with her and Riker.
Yar - Tough and spunky. Give her a much harder edge from her childhood, serious trust issues and bitterness at the perfect lives others have had.
LaForge - Promote him to full Lieutenant and Chief Engineer from the start. Maybe play around with his and Data's "friendship", maybe there's something more to it?
Worf - Thought about leaving him out. Instead, leave him at the Conn, make him more human (since that was how he was raised), and less to do with his honour.
W. Crusher - Have him as a Cadet on a training cruise, serving as Communications Officer. Drop the child genius crap, maybe he thinks he's better than he actually is.

I wonder what an Abrams-verse Enterprise D would look like?
It would be at least 3 miles long and have a crew of 100,000.

Will Riker would have the death sentence in twelve systems.

Data's skin would have a more golden color and he would be constantly saying things like "Captain, the odds of successfully navigating this asteroid field are approximately 3,720 to one!" Riker would constantly refer to him as "Commander Goldenrod".

Re: How Would You Reboot TNG Into The Abrams-Verse?

Picard should be the same, but sport a large, cheesy handlebar mustache. He should spend most of the movie asking people, "What?! It's the mustache, isn't it?" Wesley Crusher should be played by a potted plant. Make Worf a Pakled.

Re: How Would You Reboot TNG Into The Abrams-Verse?

Did I mention that the death star can fire while cloaked. Which caused the futures destruction of Romulus which was blamed on a star going super nova because we all know that advanced science would be able to tell when a star is about to go supernova.

Then an assimilated Picard as Locutus would have a show down with Wesley and tell him that he was his father.

Wesley could become the ship's resident Kenny. Every week he is killed off in horrific ways only to reappear in the next episode and nothing is ever said about it. TNGs reset button would then be far greater than VOYs ever hoped to be.

For starters, everyone needs to be in their mid-20s, no matter how implausible it makes their ranks.

Re: How Would You Reboot TNG Into The Abrams-Verse?

I think if the JJ movies are gonna be successful (the first one was) and they keep going and making many movies a reboot is inevitable for TNG.

I would prefer to reboot the TNG era all at once DS9 and VOY as well maybe the reboot would be after Nemesis,something interesting to see if you can call that a reboot

Since ST09 features characters aged 17-157, I don't see how that would be a characteristic of the "Abrams-Verse".
