NuTrek spinoff series: you're the producer

What if you were in charge of producing a new Star Trek television series directly based on JJ Abrams' series of movies. The suits ask you to keep only one character/actor from the movies, and build a spinoff series around him or her.

What do you do? Karl Urban in "McCoy, Frontier Doctor"? Zo Saldana in a futuristic spy show? Zachary Quinto in "Spock, the Last Vulcan"? What is the premise of the show, which main character do you pick and who are the show's other characters?

I totally shake things up by secretly planning on having it back in the proper Prime Universe

I do liked the idea of a McCoy show. Ideally though, I'd want to see Number One's return.

One unspoken element of my "what if" proposition is that you'd be a producer who'd actually be interested in keeping his job.

The most logical choice, of course, would be Spock, since he was the most popular character from TOS. Whether one could create an entire spinoff series with him as the lead however, remains to be seen.

Of course you create a spinoff starring Spock, and it woul be a huge hit.

NuSpock as a Star Fleet Academy Instructor, another main Actor as an Instructor who is Iconic in SciFi from a mayb Decade ago, like Nathan Fillion or Sara Michelle Gellar or Jeffrey Combs and then a bunch of 20-somethings as the Cadets, lots of Teen angst and bed hopping and put it on CW, oh nd have at least one of th cadets be from an alien species that are Vampires, you could have lots angst wth the character fighting the urge to feed or maybe a sexy female as a young Q cadet trying to fit in without her powers.

Now, of course, this porbably wouldn't be to the taste of alot of Trekkies begging for a new series, but, it would be a hit, I believe.

I can't argue with that logic.

We know that nuSpock isn't above having an affair with at least one of his students, expand that a bit and you have a hit.

Season after season of Spock "tutoring" the female cadets.

Smallville Trek/Starfleet Academy. It could be done with Kirk and McCoy or Spock and Uhura as principal characters.

Yes I know you said one character from the movies. But my idea needs two, dammit!

It's fun to joke, but I'd almost be surprised if a new series wasn't this. At the rate he's going, it's only a matter of time before Tahir gets to lead a show. Why not Trek?

A series with a young Pike would probably be pretty cool, actually.
