What do you do? Karl Urban in "McCoy, Frontier Doctor"? Zoë Saldana in a futuristic spy show? Zachary Quinto in "Spock, the Last Vulcan"? What is the premise of the show, which main character do you pick and who are the show's other characters?
I'd have Q wipe the new timeline from existence.

Seriously, apart from Alt-Bones and Alt-Spock, most of the NuCrew are painfully bland.

Quinto as spock, that way we can set it in the early 2300's, the "lost era" of Trek.

I don't mind the movies but we don't need a T.V series retreading old ground.

Would have to agree with the blandness. They're all just poor imitations of the originals (I'm not the hugest TOS fan, but it holds a special place in my heart, so I'm not fond of seeing it fiddled with).

Kirk - Just as big a jerk, although he is easier on the eye
Spock - A Vulcan with serious anger and ethical issues (an intimate relationship with a student)
McCoy - He was pretty decent, though didn't have much to do or any real development (I'm hoping for more in STID)
Scotty - He was pretty decent as well (but then again I am Scottish and do love Simon Pegg, so a little biased)
Sulu - Again they didn't do much with him, except give him a very cool sword
Uhura - She became shrill, moody and scrawny (not exactly development)
Chekov - He reminds me of Wesley (just with the bad accent), which is never a good thing

I thought the characters were the highlight of the movie, vibrant and colourful. And I'm a huge fan of the originals!

Each to their own, I guess.

No.

Anyway...

Do the show on premium cable. Naked Zoe Saldana. Just a thought.

Definately not. Naked Chris Pine on the other hand...

Re: NuTrek spinoff series: you're the producer

I'd restore the original Prime timeline at the end of the first episode. it's kinda pointless having a Star Trek series not set in the Star Trek universe. May as well just be a new show.

Anyway, I'd have a Garak spin-off series. My favourite character in all of Trek .

Too late, it's already been broadcast and become the highest rated show in the history of TV. Sadly, this also meant that society collapsed due to everybody in the world being glued to their screens for the 2 hour premiere.

Re: NuTrek spinoff series: you're the producer

Why would it be pointless? Why should Trek be forced to stick to one continuity* when just about every IP worth it's salt (including Trek) has existed in multiple continuities with great success?



*which is a complete sham requiring fairytale levels of willing suspension of disbelief to keep it all together - despite the constant referencing back and forth, each incarnation of Trek has fundamental incompatibilities with the rest.

I'm a fan of the Star Trek mythology, history and continuity. So I'm annoyed we won't see that again on film until Abrams Trek dies. I'm not as angry as many fans though as I accept that literary Trek will keep going and be much more to my taste than the NuVerse.

You won't see it again period. When Abrams moves on, we'll simply get another reboot.

Which makes sense with the current company split as well, I mean you don't have to argue over who owns what if you both have your own versions of it. Plus it lets them use a lower budget if they go live action without people wondering why everything is less cool than the movie version.

There's a single English word that covers this: "denial."
