There's hardly any on the BBC.
I never said there was. But the BBC is very genre friendly and given the success of Doctor Who (and spinoffs) I could see them going with a space opera given the right pitch.

It would explain the rather British Frenchman in command. More likely, you'd end up with The High Crusade.

This is a great idea, Americans are always stealing our ideas and ruining them, it's about time we returned the favour.

How many SF shows is the BBC currently broadcasting?

Right now? One. 'In the Flesh'. Doctor Who doesn't return for a few more months.

Personally i'd say no. 'Doctor Who' plays to our strengths and culture, that's why it works. And 'Star Trek' is very much an American expression of their culture.

And in the past, attempts to do joint productions resulted in the 1996 Doctor Who tv movie that almost saw David Hasselhoff in the role, and more recently, Torchwood: Miracle Day, which was a massive letdown after the stellar Torchwood: Children of Earth.

Well, you probably would ruin it.

BBC genre friendly, thanks for that I needed a laugh. It might seem that way from the outside and perhaps things have improved from how they used to be.

Re: The BBC should be given the chance to make a new star trek

If Russell T Davies writes, it would be super mega awesome !

I think two different Trek series would be made, one in country #1, another in country #2

Each season will have only 13 episodes.

If the BBC did it, we'd probably only see the Bridge for the first few years, perhaps streching to a corridor by the 6th season.
