Please no. No more time travel.
I agree with Belz for a change.

I could honestly do without time travel being in the Trekverse ever again at this point.

Um, so this would not be a good time to plug my new Trek time-travel novel, No Time Like the Past, coming out in February?

Yeah... it was overused before Voyager and Enterprise got their hands on it. That horse is dead. I swear, it's easier to go back in time 200 years than it is to warp from point a to point b.

On the other hand, just to play chrononaut's advocate, time-travel has a pretty good track record when it comes to generating quality episodes and movies. Many of the most popular Trek stories are time-travel stories: City on the Edge of Forever, Tomorrow is Yesterday, All Our Yesterdays, Assignment: Earth, Yesterday's Enterprise, Little Green Men, Trials and Tribble-ations, Future's End, Timeless, The Voyage Home, First Contact, etc.

And book-wise, you have Yesterday's Son, Imzadi, and other classic Trek novels.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back?

I for one one would love to see something after Voyager and if I may be so bold I would like to utter a suggestion.

It would be a lot of fun watching something with the Voth and Humans(for some reason when i say "humans" i think of Quark ). Maybe they could take the ST universe to the next level considering their technology and common ancestry with us. Since we now have been introduced to all the quadrants and their most important players it would be intriguing with some galaxy on galaxy action. I know there are many things to elaborate on within our galaxy, but I`m really really tired of the alpha/beta quadrants only. When watching DS9(for the second time) I found that there was way to little exploration of the gamma quadrant. Yes, we all know that DS9 was kind of bound to the emissary arch, but...

Well in the first two seasons they were going through regularly and meeting aliens of the week over there. Bajor even had colonies on the other side. When you encounter a huge planetary empire that shoots on sight, that does hinder exploration a bit.

too little exploration of the Gamma Quadrant? Up until they were threatened by the dominion pretty much all they did was explore the Gamma Quadrant, and after that well would you keep exploring if a super powerful race said they would kill you if you went back into the Gamma Quadrant. Personally I think they went there TOO MUCH considering the threat of the Dominion

I like to think that the Federation's encounter with the Dominion was an example of what happens when a first contact goes horribly wrong or when you boldly go where you're not wanted.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back?

I'm due for a rewatch, but as I recall, the exploration of the Gamma Quadrant and it's alien species were very few and far between even in the first few seasons with much of the GC alien of the weeks being occassional visitors to the station or a lost human colony here and there. The only exceptions I can think of are the time Miles & Julian were destroying some weapon for an alien civilization, and the time they found themselves on a Dominion held humanoid planet with Julian trying to cure a disease.

There were a very few non-Dominion plot lines in the Gamma Quadrant, but I'd never characterize it as alien of the week or anything close. How many QC species did our heroes meet?

Including some Dominion races, about 20.
