That's a "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" type of question, I'm afraid. No matter how many dead horses are beaten, there will always be yet another dead horse and an adequate supply of sticks with which to beat it. It is the order of things.

Maybe the movie mantle should pass to Bad Horse?

My first post in years.

I think it should pass to no one. Star Trek's been great, but it should end.

It's been over milked. This cow should be allowed to retire with dignity.

That's a possibility, too. And I get where you're coming from. (A lot of the ideas for blue-sky "reboots" that we occasionally bat around on the Future of Trek forum would, in all honesty, probably be better-served as simply new properties.)

OTOH I've learned not to count Trek out. A franchise that could recover from The Final Frontier has depths and lives unguessed-at even now. So, who knows?

Star Trek isn't going to end. It is going to be rebooted. And then it's going to be rebooted again. And then again. And then...
