Thing about Doctor Who though is that it's been back in TV production since 2005 and has been really popular, while Trek has really just had the two movies recently.

Re: What Should Be Done for Star Trek's 50th

CBS/Paramount will do whatever they think will generate buzz for the franchise. I personally expect:

-the next movie, of course.

-some type of merchandising push marking fifty years of Trek.

-maybe something for TV, the best (and yet most extreme) option being a new series, but probably some kind of retrospective. It could even be a series of small retrospectives, one for each series, ala The Captains on Epix.

I seldom watch it and don't follow it much, but does your Trek suggestion really follow Doctor Who's approach? Is Doctor Who planning four TV movies and a mini-series that require extensive set creation and the attempted re-assembly of numerous casts and crews? And a major theatrical motion picture?

In a more practical vein, I would like to see the next Trek movie released in 2016 to coincide with the 50th anniversary. It would be a completely new adventure and not derivative of anything that has gone before. It would open with a splash screen of a terrifically designed 50 year logo. Perhaps a montage of scenes from all of the old series and movies could be assembled and shown as a 'trailer' after the end of the film? I think even that would have some rights issues to deal with.
Doctor Who had one 50th special that did bring back a couple of previous doctors. They probably had some tv interviews or whatnot, but on BBC America I remember just the 50th Anniversary Special. Of course merchandise too.
Would that be The five(ish) Doctors reboot?

Which was actually quite good, it's a shame it was on the Red Button instead of being broadcast on one of the BBC TV channels.

Nah I mean the 50th Anniversary special that they aired on BBC (in my case BBC America).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Day_of_the_Doctor

Tom Baker was really the only "before new" doctor to be featured. But they showed images at the end of them all if I recall correctly.

In addition to the above the BBC also did

An Adventure in Time and Space about the making of DW.

Night of the Doctor which had the Doctor in just not the one we were expecting.

The difference however was DW was in production on TV at the time had it not been I expect we wouldn't have had much.

Re: What Should Be Done for Star Trek's 50th

An Adventure In Space and Time was quite good and did feature several actors who had apeared in the show during the it covered circa 1963-1966.

I'd also recommed The Five(ish) Doctor's Reboot.It's actually quite impressive who they managed to get to appear in it. But then again maybe not.

Re: What Should Be Done for Star Trek's 50th

All the Doctors appeared in Day of the Doctor, although some due to stock footage/dialogue and some CG copy and pasting over body doubles at the end.

The episodes which bookended the seventh season-Asylum Of The Daleks and Name Of The Doctor-likewise featured a good chunk of Daleks from all of the Dalek stories over the last 50 years and Name of the Doctor also did the stock footage/body double stuff which featured all the Doctors.

In a way it was a bit like Star Trek's 30th which also utilized some clever stock footage manipulation (Trials and Tribbleations) and a returning actor (George Takei in Voy's Flashback).

Doctor Who did have some anniversary stuff when it was off the air-the awful 90's 3D special Dimensions In Time and the decent documentary 30 years in the TARDIS; the 40th anniversary did have another documentary I believe and also the announcement of the new series, as well as audio and novel stuff.

There were plans for a more elaborate 30th special called The Dark Dimension, but those fell through.

Re: What Should Be Done for Star Trek's 50th

Would love to have a special edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture with the theatrical, director's and special longer editions all on one disc with seamless branching.

Re: What Should Be Done for Star Trek's 50th

I think a rather interesting 50th Anniversary show would be to have some of the members from the TOS, TNG, DS9 and Voy go into a dream state where they wake in the new Trek Universe and interact with the new cast members on a one to one basis where Veteran Trek cast member thinks they are dreaming but are in fact in the new Trek timeline.
