Were you planning on visiting the Crimea?

At worst it would be harmless. Nothing wrong with celebrating the past.

Unfortunately the 50th anniversary will go by with a whimper, even with the movie revitalization. It's not the hot Hollywood commodity it once was.
And yet the movie reimaginging is probably too big a deal to let anyone do small TV movies.

As much as I'd love that, it would never happen. Making 5 movies, with a cast that's decades older than when the show aired, with sets and costumes that are long gone, would never be feasible.
Realistically you could just about get away with an Excelsior TV movie. Perhaps Sulu's swansong. And maybe a Titan TV movie. Wouldn't need whole cast reunions then, or have to recreate too many established sets. I don't think you could capture DS9 in one special and keep it affordable, or get the Voyager gang together again. There was a 5th series?

I like the idea of a week long miniseries that crosses over the various eras. There was video game that did a pretty good job of this called ST: Legacy IIRC.
Indeed, it could be like this giant sack full of awesome

Re: For the 50th anniversery

Aside from the inherent logistical and financial hurdles, I think that this is an idea that sounds and looks better in the mind's eye than in actual execution. Would the one-off special consideration anniversary tag leave these projects invulnerable to internecine combat regarding plot, technical excellence, and the inevitable inclusion/overload of the nostalgia/schmaltz tripe, er uh, trope(s)?

NO, NO, and NO. Writ large under the BIG 50 Banner and the incipient pressure that would imply, I would imagine that the baying, carping, and crying after the fact would make the consternation expressed before, during, and after production of any single stand alone theatrical feature, say Abrams I, look merely like the unpleasantness at the end of one of the Caretaker's hoedowns!

Besides which, how would whatever self-congratulatory huzzahs that might result, help in making any material progress towards the real brass ring, a new legitimate series, broadcast or otherwise??

No, invading it. After annexing the Sudetenland, of course.
