Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

"Fan" in this poll is defined as anyone who enjoyed one or combinations of any series, books, games, or movies.

(To modders: I'm unaware if this brakes any repost rule. I just want visual data on the topic, whichever way it goes.)

I don't know.

There's too many variables that are unknown. I'll get back to you once they announce something...

I don't know. As long as it continues to be quality, I don't care.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

^Agreed. I'm fine with either the Primeverse or the current one as long as we're getting good stories.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

I was going to say (or my original plan was) they got the writers they needed to pull it off (or if NuTrek equally got the writers to pull off a great 3rd movie) and use the "I don't know" option as a "I'm content and/or wouldn't want them to make any rash decisions" but that wouldn't be fair to those who like doing their homework on a show before committing to it or whatever reason.

I voted I want it back. Into Darkness bugged me too much to vote anything else. The Prime line is what I know and love about Star Trek and would love to see a continuation of that. There's too many Prequels and reboots at the moment for me.

I just think this is the wrong reason to bring Trek back whether in the Prime or any other timeline. It feels like a blanket that people just can't let go of for emotional reasons.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Aa much as I love them, anything stylistically resembling Berman era Trek would likely kill the franchise at this point, so if that's what you mean by "Prime", then no, I wouldn't want it.

However, any show, in any timeline/setting, embracing the energy and excitement of Abrams Trek, while simultaneously retaining the "core" essence of TOS could truly be great. The last two movies, particularly STID, achieved this in spades.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Well, if Trek '09 had been the abomination that some people seem to consider it to be...

But as far as the general public was concerned it wasn't, and as far as the Trek fanbase is concerned, it's my opinion they should be grateful that something happened to revive interest in the franchise even if they didn't care for the precise form that it took.

I can't think of anything duller than some ridiculous 24th/25th century 'continuation.' TNG-Trek is dead. Good riddance.

Possibly... But I don't necessarily see that as a wrong reason. Star Trek to me has always been more than just action. There's science fact, science theory, back stories etc. I don't want Star Trek to just be another Action movie, that's kind of what Star Wars is but I guess Star Wars has always been the more sell-able franchise, more popular. But that's not what I'm looking for personally...

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Would you judge the shape TNG was going to take by the first two episodes? If not, then I'd recommend not applying that standard to the new movies.

The first two episodes of TNG I saw were Encounter at Farpoint and The Naked Now back in 1987. I loved them both then and I love them now. I wish the rest of Modern Trek had been as enjoyable as those first two seasons of TNG.

No absolutely not. Tv Episodes have big budget constraints so naturally you have less exciting/engaging episode...
TOS was always working under budget and time constraints and never seemed to have an issue with telling exciting/engaging episodes.
