Enterprise struggled because it wasn't very good. It started out with twelve-million viewers and was at less than two million a week when the series ended.

A 25th century Trek is just an excuse for new ubership and a bland crew getting into an inevitable war with formidable aliens ... again.

I think that anything that is done right could work. My personal preference is that they use Kirk and Spock if they go back to TV.

But, even if they use the Prime timeline, anyone who thinks they will go back to using the same style Berman used in the mid-90's clearly isn't thinking it through. It will have far more in common with J.J. Abrams version than it will with Rick Berman.

When I started watching TNG in 1987, from the get go it was undeniably recognizable as Roddenberry Trek. Any new series it going to have an all-new creative team and the TV landscape has changed.

A little from column A, a little from column B.

Hopefully, the same as I stated above.

A mission to another galaxy might work, but there'd be an awful lot of empty space no matter how fast Warp 9.99999999975 is.

This is where you'd have general audiences rolling their eyes and changing the channel.

With 24th century technologies like Transwarp and Quantum slipstream drives (and a large galaxy that can plot point a wormhole to another galaxy) allowing ships to travel faster than warp 10, galactic travel is possible in the 25th century.

Would I watch? I'd probably give it a shot. Do I think it's a good idea? No.

Any 25c series would ultimately be tethered (intentionally or not) to the 90s stuff unless they did some kind of full reboot. The 24c is a well contaminated to the point it's best not to drink from it again. And if rebooting (again) why not just stay with the 23rd? The 23rd century is part of the pop-culture lexicon. The others not so much.

I'll watch anything called Star Trek at least once.

Weither or not I'd stick with it would depend on how good it was.

There's no reason to believe that. First of all, the same people who were creatively in charge of 24th-Century Trek are not going to be involved, so they'll approach it with a totally different mindset. For all intents and purposes, any references to the 24th-Century will be treated in the same manner TNG did with the 23rd-Century. At most, we may just see a couple of 24th-Century races pop up once in a while.

No reason to assume that with different people in charge of it either, but it would be fun to see how things have changed since the 24th-Century and what brand-new things have arisen in the interim.

Re: If they made a 25th century TV series, would you watch it?

At this point I'd watch a Trek series no matter when it was set.

Now with that said, I think it's completely unnecessary to set the show in the 25th century. Just what would be the purpose, other than to continue the prime universe that really isn't all that necessary to do?

I'd much rather see a nuTOS show based on the films. A fresh slate taking place during the period most people equate with Star Trek, only this time there's no 40 years of canon to adhere to, and they could make whatever stories they wanted.

Of course, with the warp drive's PDC (Plot Dependency Coefficient) Module, that superwarp drive would get them to that new galaxy during the main credits and commercials after the teaser.

I'd watch it but general audiences probably wouldn't. Outside of Kirk and Spock I don't think general audiences give much of a crap about Star Trek.

Can't disagree with the viewing figures which is a shame as I thought it got better in the 3rd, 4th series. DS9 & Voyager also took a few seasons to really get going.

Don't care what century it's in, as long as it's a good show.
