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

I suppose one current movie with just homages and nods to the original would be sufficient. Maybe one with Tribbles in it.

Several TV Movie reunions would be an unexpected surprise. Probably Sept or October, riding in the third film's wake.

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

I would love a new TV series/Netflix series for the 50th anniversary. Of course, we will have a movie, and I want that too, but the most important thing should be to bring back Star Trek to the small screen.

I think there should be a big party at OP's house, with everyone from TrekBBS flown in.

I don't know how much Trek's 50th has been discussed around here, but here's whatI would do if I was in charge over there.

First, I'd make it a year-long celebration. Each of the modern series would have a reunion television movie penned by various writers from each series.

In January 2016, Enterprise. Bring in Manny Coto to pen a tele-movie that covers the Earth-Romulan Wars and lays the foundation for the Federation. Actually do something with the characters to show what they've accomplished since the show went off the air...don't have them stuck in the same place like in the finale.

In March 2016, The Next Generation. Have someone like Ronald D. Moore write a tele-movie that shows the aftermath of Romulus's destruction. I'd have a story where factions of the Klingon Empire want to invade the Romulans and the Federation comes to their rescue.

In May 2016, Deep Space Nine. Maybe Ira Steven Behr? Bring Sisko back from the Celestial Temple and show what's gone on with Bajor and Cardassia since the series. Maybe even bring in the Dominion and Odo?

In July 2016, Voyager. Maybe Kenneth Biller? Pit Voyager against the Borg...yes, done to death but see where I'm going with this. It's not your normal encounter, it's a prelude to a much worse invasion in...

A 3-part mini-series in September 2016 to coincide with the actual anniversary of Star Trek's first airing. Unite the TNG-era crews in a massive battle against the Borg based on David Mack's excellent Star Trek: Destiny books. I'm sure it would be adapted for all the crews and the pieces would already be setup from the individual reunion tele-movies so you've already got everybody's background. It would be epic and give each cast one last hurrah on Trek's 50th anniversary before...

The big one! What I call, Star Trek Legends (I'd call it Federation but that's already taken by another excellent novel. An epic theatrical movie that unites the cast of the 2009 movie with TNG and ENT as the two future crews are sent back in time to preserve the birth of the Federation. We can learn the true identity of "Future Guy", find out how Trip really died, and finally see the Federation's real foundation. And of course, the story includes a special appearance for Mr. Shatner himself as well as cameos for the rest of the original series cast and with today's technology, you can get both Mr. Kelley and Mr. Doohan in there. I have an original storyline all worked out for Legends and everything.

At least, this is what I would do if I had any say over there at Paramount. 50 years is big and they should follow Doctor Who's example over on the BBC and make it big.

What are your thoughts?
I think that this could be done, but as a series of animated movies (per my earlier post on the subject) so that the cost wouldn't be so much, and voice acting can be done without having the original actors if they don't want to reprise the roles they played. This would also let Doohan and Kelly be in the movie, also with different voice actors replacing them.

Also, if CBS doesn't want to show the movies on TV, they can have the movies be on DVD/download/PPV.

Bad Robot and Paramount should release a Star Trek movie directed by Robert Orci.

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

Things I'd like to see that are within the realm of possibility:

1. A new TV series! Seriously, Trek was meant to be an weekly exploration of the human condition. Movies, though fun, will never work as well. In 2016, it'll be 11 years since the last Trek series was on TV. It's time to try again.

2. That said, let's complete the trilogy. A new movie to wrap up this new universe. It's not like a movie and a TV series haven't both existed at the same time in the past. It's time to make it so again.

3. Documentaries galore! One for each of the shows and one for the new movies. Interviews, this should be easy to do, and Trek deserves no less than Dr. Who got in this department.

4. New DVDs/Blu-rays of whatever hasn't recently been re-released yet.

5. a docu-drama in the style of Dr. Who's Adventure in Time and Space, only about Gene Roddenberry.

6. merchandise for all the previous series, and the new stuff, updated action figures would be nice, but there is so much that can be done here

7. a big crossover event for characters of all five series in both the novels and the comics

Well, they're not going to "wrap up this new universe." This is it.

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

Indeed! Abrams has introduced us to STAR TREK, all over again. The iconic characters are all back and it's universe is no less "true" than the "prime" one is. That's what I find somewhat confusing, as to where fans of the original are coming from. Kirk, Khan or some other "K" name would talk a good game about what "happened" from the Sixties through the 23rd Century. Assorted novelizations of varying quality and other attempts to shoehorn STAR TREK's timeline into Reality have been kind of sad, really. I mean ... the insistance of a certain percentage of the fanbase that this discrepency be somehow "rectified" is just too embarassing. Timelines in STAR TREK don't mean a hell of a whole lot and they shouldn't. I kind of wish that "they" hadn't blown up Vulcan in the new storyline, because I thought it could be a really exotic and wonderful setting for some really great stories. But ... Ceti Alpha VI exploded and the results of that fueled the fire for television episodes and movies, for decades after ...

I think the only thing we`ll get for the 50th is a big annoying marketing campaign for star trek 3. A documentary of some kind. And a crappy computer game.

And novels. And comics. And merchandise out the wazoo.

Well to be completely fair, he created an alternate version.

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

Hmmm ...
That's debatable, T'Girl! Debatable, at best.

When it comes to STAR TREK, there's only 1 (one) game in town - and that's the new movies. There are no other versions being shot concurrently, by Paramount or CBS - it's just the one. Although, it is interesting to hear talk now that the movies will reflect more of what TOS was like. I suspect that this sudden concern for Trek of old has to do with the fact that General Audiences are fickle.

It's inevitable that the sequels money-generating potential is going to trail off. And if they are continuing to hear the TREKKIES complain that they, the General Audiences, aren't getting the FULL Star Trek Experience, their incentive to stick around will only diminish all the more. But even doing that, the fact remains, that there are no alternative versions to what's being done now, except through the atrocious Fan Film circles ...

Shatner appears in the next Star Trek film. Just find a way. I suspect the idea has to come from him.

Ideally I'd like Scott Bakula and/or Patrick Stewart to be in the cast list, alongside Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto et all too.

Archer's not a problem, since he's in the past of this universe. He's either really old, or deader than JFK or Nixon. But part of historical events you can make relevant to the plot. Like responsible for something negative, such as starting the Romulan War (from the enemy's perspective anyway) as well as something positive, like forming the Federation.

Picard is admittedly more difficult to achieve and definitely requires time-travel. If not a universe cross-over.
I'd like to see Bakula, Shatner, Stewart, Brooks, and Mulgrew all cameo in the 50th anniversary film somehow
