Re: Your ideal New Trek Series

Despite not being much into TOS I'd dig a 23rd century retro series, not set on a starship but rather a cargo ship or a colony. Perhaps even several locations, either more objective than before with some documentary style vibes or without the classical heroic Starfleet characters. In short, less space opera.

This sounds exceptional actually. I can't see one-track minded execs being open to it - especially these days as it wouldn't have enough mindless action, lens-flare and perfect-looking cookie-cutter heroes to make them lots of money.
I'd be willing to donate to a kickstarter though.

My favorite era is the early to mid 2370s. Not that anyone else would be even faintly interested, but a DS9-style show detailing the lives of those involved in the design, construction and deployment of the Akira class would be awesome. It could be called Star Trek: Akira, and could involve observations on the Federation's changing priorities in the wake of Wolf 359. Ohhh if only.........

Re: Your ideal New Trek Series

It is two hundred years after the events portrayed in Voyager. The Federation and Starfleet have fallen on hard times. Being in Starfleet doesn't have the bragging rights it used to. Numerous costly run-ins with The Dominion, The Borg and Romulans, as well as other belligerents, have given rise to cynicism concerning the benefits of exploration. Many feel the only thing Starfleet is really good at is attracting trouble.

The Federation, itself, is seen as passe and quaint. A unwieldy and unrealistic United Nations of planets that doesn't represent everyone fairly and imposes its morality on alien worlds as a condition of admittance and amount of "say". Differences and petty squabbles are proving harder to overcome. Several important members have withdrawn membership or are internally debating doing so.

The events take place on an outdated exploration vessel featuring a multi-species group of proud & capable bridge officers beleaguered by low crew morale, underfunding, lack of popular support, & Starfleet bureaucracy as the try to explore & do their part to rehabilitate both Starfleet and The Federation.

I have a idea, but I'm not going to tell as I don't want it taken.

Re: Your ideal New Trek Series

I honestly wouldn't mind if they just had an exploration ship with a mixed human/alien crew set after Star Trek: Nemesis. It's what I wanted at the time, and it's what I want now. Took me awhile to appreciate Enterprise for what it was, they should have just kept going with the flow instead of hopping on board the Phantom Menace prequel train. It really has been a long road.
