A spinoff, by definition, is more of the same. Only the names and faces are different.
Are you really saying that TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT were all the same as TOS and had the same kind of characters?
Only half-hearted cosmetic change is permitted, so as not to offend fans of the original. Unfortunately, by the time you get to your third or fourth spinoff, fans of the original are bored out of their minds.
I have to disagree with this, because if it was the case then people would still be bored with Trek and Star Trek XI would have been a flop and there wouldn't have been an even more successful Star Trek XII.
A reboot, at least, makes some effort to shake out the cobwebs and get the engine revving again.
The same thing happens with every new Trek series. But what sustains the commercial popularity of any TV show depends on a number of factors from its writing, to its acting, to its overall appeal, to even its timing (being made at the right time).

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.
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.

Les Moonves said the fourth season nosedived in the ratings because it was "hip deep in canon".
Really?

Eh, I have my doubts he actually said that.

Of course I would watch it as long as the series had characters I can like and good stories to keep me interested.
+1.

I'd give it a chance. If it sucked, I'd stop.

There's no way in hell Moonves would have ever said something like that. He wouldn't have known the word "canon" from the thing that shoots cannonballs. What's your source for this?

This sounds more like the typical "Moonves hates Star Trek and all sci-fi" BS that trufans tend to frequently spout, with no basis in reality. Moonves doesn't hate Star Trek and sci-fi. He hates shows that are expensive to produce and at the same time give little payoff in ratings. If Star trek were as cheap to produce as reality show schlock and garnered the same ratings as said reality show, we'd have a new Trek series tomorrow.

I totally agree on all points.

I kinda want to close the poll at 100. Can modders do that?

For a census.

I'd try it, if I liked it I'd continue. If I didn't, I'd watch something else.

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

I'd try it. If it starts with Star Trek then It's usually all right. Enterprise made me gag and yell at the TV so I shunned it forever and don't consider it Star Trek. That's just my opinion of course but that won't ever change. So if it's anything similar to Enterprise I would be very unhappy and stop after five minutes or less.

What in your estimation makes Enterprise any less Star Trek than the other series? I never thought it was all that great either (had its moments), nor were the early seasons really my cup of tea, but in the end it was still about the intrepid crew of the Starship Enterprise seeking out new life and civilizations.

And to be fair, the last season was probably the most TOS-like of any season of any series since season 2 of TOS.

Honestly, if there is ever a new series, whether it be in prime-verse or nuverse (in any century), the tone and scope of Season 4 ENT is what TPTB should strive for.

I would watchit if it has good, likeable characters, a good story and is not screwing up established Trek history.

If Kirk and his crew are not in it, then it is a waste of time.

May aswell create a new sci fi show in its own right rather than slap 'Star Trek' on the opening credits.

Id MUCH prefer a 25th century show, than ANYTHING, movie, show, puppet show, set in the NuTrek universe.

With one exception:

Lets see a Federation dealing with the destruction of Romulus, and refugees from the fragmenting empire.

Kirk and Spock are dead. DEAL WITH IT.
