Re: A New Modern Trek Animated Series

I'd love to see a continuation of the TNG universe, set after the destruction of Romulus. An animated series has the advantage of being able to combine TNG with DS9 and Voyager ... get it on, now!

Depends on how it was done.

Re: A New Modern Trek Animated Series

A reality where Romulus is destroyed doesn't seem as interesting a reality where Vulcan is destroyed, on the principle that stories are better when the heroes are the underdogs. Amps up the drama that way. (Think about fictional stories across the whole range of TV shows, movies, plays and books - almost always, the protagonists are at some disadvantage. It's a tried and true strategy for holding people's interest.)

And then there's the pragmatic factor that it's far more likely Trek on TV will key off success (Abrams' movies) than failure (Berman's TV shows). Hollywood no likey failure.

TNG was not a failure, neither was DS9. Even Voyager was fairly successful! It was only the last two movies and Enterprise that made the viewers turn their backs on Trek.

Re: A New Modern Trek Animated Series

Another interesting possibility could be if a new animated series picked up the STO timeline and used the STO uniform and ship styling. That way no one has to hire expensive Hollywood megastars, and the fact that it's animated would seem natural instead of jarring.

Re: A New Modern Trek Animated Series

I've been reconsidering this Modern Trek animated series idea. How many regular viewers does Clone Wars get per new episode. I would bet Trek has a large enough base of hard core fans that would tune in to support it. It may not be the demographic they are looking for however, and that might be a deal breaker...

Of course, it would have to be done well.

Re: A New Modern Trek Animated Series

This seems tailor made for a fan production. Or not. I have no idea how long animating takes. Some day I'll buy Anime Studio and find out.

Hollywood runs on the principle, what have you done for me lately? TNG may as well have happened in the early Triassic (and the TV biz was so different back in the time of dinosaurs that it's useless as a model for anything happening today). DS9 and VOY are also ancient history, and neither was much of a ratings success.

All that counts is whatever is most recent: on TV, that was failure. In movies, that was success.

Having a 24th or 25th century show where the Romulus have been laid low and are no longer a force to be reconned with is bad.

I did have this idea from last year.

Spock leaves Vulcan a half hour earlier, destroys the supernova, Romulus is save, Spock is a hero in both the Federation and the Empire, this pushes through reunification.

Spock and Kirk (resurrected in the Shatnerverse) celebrate by taking Kirk's late father's vintage corvette for a spin in the Iowa countryside.

Nero is found guilty of stealing Romulan state secrets (Borg technology) to rebuild his broken down old mining ship and is slowly executed.

His wife casually moves on to another tattooed miner. She's apparently hot for tattooed guys.
To many of the possible new fans of a possible new show, the destruction of Romulus was a forgotten passing reference in a summer movie.

To the more serious long term fan, the absents of Romulus's destruction can be dismissed through some techno-babble multiple universe wrinkle.

Unless a new animated series is going to depict the adventures of Pine-Kirk in the alternate timeline, there is no reason to set the show in said alternate timeline.

A animated series without the sneaky, backstabbing Romulans would be "less."
