Re: Revamped idea for a New show. Star Trek : Star Fleet Intelligence

Glad to hear it. You come off as someone who's critical. I don't mind that, but if you have no idea's of your own and bring nothing to the table but your appetite, than it's a problem. The New Trek movies have already invited the new fans, who may have not been familiar with either the original or STTNG. Now it's time moreso to bring something out for all the old and faithful trekies who have waited after ENTERPRISE went off the air. Watched You-tube's Star Trek "Of God's and men and will watch the soon to be released You-Tubes "Star Trek Renegades". The new movies have already established a fan base. Now it's time for a new tv show with fresh writer's and fresh idea's

Fresh ideas doesn't mean breaking away from everything that Trek is and going down a totally new direction focusing on spooks, secrets and clandestine missions.

Stories should focus as much on the characters as the alien-of-the-week, so there are plenty of stories to tell about the people on an exploratory mission, as much as the adventures they will have. That's what I want from Trek on TV.

I liked the Section 31 idea and I like this - it would help tie in the current movies. Star Trek has to change, just 'exploring' has had it's chance - a new show has to have a different angle for me
Then what's the point of it being 'Star Trek'?

This is the one thing that always just confuses me to no end: people want 'Star Trek' back but they don't want it to be 'Star Trek'.
So are you telling me that all the previous series have followed the 'exploring' philosophy rigidly? I seem to remember lots of TNG & DS9 exploring lots of different themes, politics espionage, war, economics, all sorts, it was all still Star Trek though, just like this could be. There would still be worlds and races to be discovered, but our main characters would be simply employed by the Federation in a different capacity, that's how I see it. Surely any new show needs an 'edge' or USP to compete in todays crowded marketplace?

That's the point. All those elements were episodes in the larger series that dealt with exploring the universe and meeting new aliens.

An Intel series would be about spying on other species, not making contact with them.

Re: Revamped idea for a New show. Star Trek : Star Fleet Intelligence

We'll have to agree to disagree then, I still think it would be great, don't get me wrong - if Trek came back to TV and it was a more traditional show, I'd be just as eager to see it, I'm not wanting to destroy what Trek is, but I don't see the harm in mixing things up a little. I'm a big DS9 fan, and some of my favorite aspects of it were the political turmoil with the Romulans, Section 31, The Obsidian Order, stuff like that. It really fleshed out the experience of watching Trek for me and made the other races seem more realistic and not just some one-dimensional alien of the week, Im not really backing anything more of a departure than what DS9 was to be fair.

I like the idea, but then i really think the Star Trek TV franchise should have expanded to have a few shows like this, set in the Star Trek universe but being spy, crime or even medical shows.
