There really needs to be a Star Trek TV series based on the movie!

Okay, I'm sure this topic has been done many times previously, but it really deserves another chance. Plainly, I think that there really should be a new Star Trek series, using Trek 11 as the platform, with the same cast and all.

Reason? Star Trek has always been about developing characters. I really loved the friendship that started between Kirk and Spock in the film. They hated each other at first, but then they realized that they needed each other, and actually complimented each other really well (as with TOS). I'm sure Trek 12 when it comes out will be nice, but I really want to see that friendship developing, over the course of a TV series. From one movie to the next, either development will be greatly lacking, or they will change so much (because so many events will have taken place "between" the two) that we will miss out on the development.

Who's with me?

I agree with you. I would love to see a series based off of the movie with the same cast! But there is no telling if it will happen or not. I really would love to see the friendship between Kirk and Spock grow. I do hope we see some that happen in the next set movies.

I disagree. I think that, for the time being, Star Trek needs to remain a movie property. The problems previously were that Trek had oversaturated the market. If there would be a new series then it would weaken the series again.

Besides, Zachary Quinto already has an ongoing tv series.

i agree. Although i wouldn't mind in a year or two a series with George Kirk, using Chris Hemsworth. He had so little screen time but was amazing.

Re: There really needs to be a Star Trek TV series based on the movie!

A series about the USS Kelvin with Faran Tahir set in the years leading up to the run-in with the Narada? THAT would be a great idea and allow a whole new prequel crew to take up where Archer and ENT left off.

If they made a series now it would probably something like Starfleet Academy, with hot teens having sex and kicking ass.

Yep. I can see Tori Spelling asking to be in it now.

Any future TV series should be set back in the prime universe.

I wonder if that is still possible. I still like the idea they might reset the timeline in movie 3.
People didn't mind all the time travel/alternate universe stuff this time. I bet 98% of the audience doesn't give a damn.
Why not make a cool story with lots of explosions and naked chicks and set everything back as it was (just souped-up in design) and everybody would be happy.
