Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Whatever the timeline/century/series/movie, I would keep the original TOS optimism. DS9 is probably as gritty as it can get and still be Trek.

I think, if it is a reboot, you need an attitude that is optimistic. Go the opposite direction of nuBSG and be more optimistic. If you bring back the Prime Timeline, then have the Alpha Quadrant move towards a period of peace, where exploration becomes more common place.

I think that having a more mixed crew, in terms of civilians and Starfleet personnel, could be fun as well. I'm sure that's come up before, but different point of view than the usual Starfleet lines would be a fun character to have as well.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

I would love the prime back but it couldn't be set in the 24th century (flogging a dead horse and what not). Move it forward 100 years set it with a better mix of characters like fireproof suggested and I think a better mix of aliens and humans (or at least have humans from planets other than earth). have the klingon empire on the verge of collapse fragmenting into houses with the smaller one wanting to join the federation or something and others aligning with the romulans/gorn. Giving more meat to some of the other races besides the stables (klingons/romulans/vulcans) would be a good idea too.
Getting around the techno babble of voy and ent should be easy considering how continuity for the details isn't strong suit in star trek. Focus on character and storyline and the tech shouldn't matter that much anyway.

Curiosity and cooperation have to remain the fundamental values. If they can't get this right, the question of timeline is trivial. "Let's see what's out there."
