Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

^^^That's okay, there won't be a quiz. What I'm saying only matters if I'm right. Otherwise, either you like the cool new characters or you don't, and there's nothing to discuss anyhow.



But if this is a hint to rephrase?

Para. 1 Good style in fictional science is more interesting and entertaining than mashing everything together without any thought.

Para. 2 The new characters are not really thought through, and already the only story idea they can come up with is to remake Wrath of Khan.

Para. 3 If you don't happen to identify with the extremely conventional, marketing driven approach to characterization in the new franchise, you're out of luck.

i think if the shows done right then one about a new enterprise team set on the enterprise J, we don't know to much so it will be good to see.

Oh God, any ship but the Enterprise-J! Can't stand that overgrown pizza cutter.

As far as I'm concerned, that was something from only a potential future like the "All Good Things..." Enterprise-D was.

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

A totally different design would help, but any glimpse into Trek's future really isn't set in stone anyway. The real Enterprise-J likely won't look anything like that one shown in "Azati Prime" and may even come at a different point in time.

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

i think it would be a good idea, a new enterprise to set off on a new and all important mission to a new part of the galaxy

It really should be the premise of the next Trek series, IMO. Keep it simple, don't bog it down with some storyline from a previous series, and allow it to strike a balance between action, drama, interpersonal relationships, and the occasional bug-eyed monster. Being able to occasionally lighten up and show that life can be good (if not sometimes funny) now and then wouldn't hurt either.

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

1701-J is a bit far in the future, though. The next series should be concurrent with the new movies, in my opinion. Either that, or in TNG's time frame, or STO.

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

I think a new Trek series should be in the 25th-Century (circa the 2460s) and be as different from TNG as it was to TOS. The 24th-Century is just played out and the Abramsverse should continue as a movies-only thing, IMO...

You mean, going back to the previous timeline ? Count me out.

Right so we have a lot of material to go on for a new series, temporal agency thingy, section 31 is possible, or maybe a series from the klingons point of view, maybe something to do with the vulcans, all series set around the abrahamverse trek, the sky's the limit if anything happens...
Wow...pretty much everything I don't want to see in a new Trek show.
Same here. What's wrong with just Captain Kirk, Mister Spock, and the Enterprise crew exploring new worlds? I want Star Trek, not another crappy spinoff. We've had enough of those.

I'd like a new reboot unconnected with the JJ Abrams movies.

That is something I really don't want: a third reboot ...

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

maybe not a reboot as such, how about do the scrapped spin off assignment earth, but in JJ Abrams universe instead, with cameos from the movie cast too

Re: The abundance of ideas for a new trek show.

Instead of going back to revamp the franchise, I think they should have done a Starfleet Academy series set after voyagers return. It would have drawn in the younger sci-fi viewers giving them something to relate to and given the fan base familiar faces and story-arcs. One episode the 'Doctor' stops by to give a speech on Delta Quadrant medication, another you pass by Prof. Miles O'brian's engineering course or Dr. Crusher's medical lab (or give a returning cast member a main character role, why not). One of the main characters could be aiming for the CONN position to throw in space cg effects every now and then, another main charater's a Klingon transitioning to earth's rules. You can even have the occasional Romulan or Borg threat or do class away mission, reaching to further reaches of space using the new transwarp system. Aliens attack and they send out a distress signal and Worf in the defiant drops out of transwarp and kicks ass. I think it would have been a great idea.
