Just hire Patrick Stewart again. He hasn't aged.
Unfortunately, I don't think he has any desire to put on the space pajamas again.

Odd as it may sound, the same thing was said about replacing William Shatner.

Re: Star Trek TNG Reboot coming?

It's interesting, actually, that because Sir Patrick Stewart was old and bald in TNG and even today, is still old and bald, that this somehow equates to not having aged.

He looks ... really decrepit now in a way that's kind of scarey, honestly. Like maybe he really needs to get started on his Bucket List. Actors, especially the great ones, almost don't seem real, somehow. They age so slowly, because of a little tuck here and there, along the way and a thick base of make-up, when they're onscreen. But sure enough, Time catches up with them and it's always a shock, like "how could that happen?" When The Shat, or Nimoy go ... I dread ... I so dread the mourning and lamentation STAR TREK fans are in for. And Stewart won't be very far behind, I'm afraid to say ...

Re: Star Trek TNG Reboot coming?

After so many years of no Trek on tv, and the possibility of no future Trek, a reboot TNG sounds very exciting. The originial will always be there whether the reboot is any good or not.

I suppose so. I really have no idea how they would even begin to approach doing a reboot TNG nowadays.

It would have to be hip and in style, JJ Abrams like.

There probably really wouldn't be any high concept Sci-Fi in it though, but rather it would be more nuBSG like, all dark and brooding.

Re: Star Trek TNG Reboot coming?

^ This has had me imagining a recast TNG series done BSG style, maybe with the Federation at war or something. As long as it's good that's all I'm worried about, and be true to the spirit of the characters. I enjoy a good alternate universe, and if you're going to do something new with the characters, taking them in a different direction with the story could be interesting.
Not that that is my preference. I'd be thrilled with some old fashioned optimistic exploration.

That's the part, I fear, that would get lost in translation. I never understood the seeming obsession by some (I'm not saying you, borgboy!) with war, death, and grimness. Sometimes I think the part about 'to explore strange, new worlds...to seek out new life and new civilizations' gets forgotten.

The "new, darker" take on some old properties is pretty tiring, in my opinion. In fact, it really has worked out well so few times, I'm surprised the idea is still trotted out so often.

If there was ever a time when we needed some hope and optimism, it's now.

Kind of like Yesterday's Enterprise but throughout the whole series?

That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

Re: Star Trek TNG Reboot coming?

If the TNG "reboot" was in the NuTrekverse then a bleak and war-torn Yesterday's Enterprise-style future might be just what they'd face. Seeing as how the NuTOS characters don't have much in the way of maturity or common sense, a war started then could still be going on by the time of a 20-something crew of the E-D are on the scene (where female skants are little more than micro miniskirts and tubetops).

I love that some people never miss an opportunity to bash the Abrams movies.

No, he doesn't look at all "decrepit" and isn't "scary" - not even remotely. He looks like a 73 year old man in pretty good shape to my eye.
maybe he really needs to get started on his Bucket List.
Wow, classy.

I remember JJ Abrams talking about how his wife had input into how nuUhura should be characterized. Then look at the end result: An arrogant nagging bitch. lol

Then the nuTrek version of Carol Marcus: tits!!!

If you look at TOS, Uhura was an integral part of the crew with no need to antagonize any of the male crew, and was very sweet.
