HBO/Showtime version of Star Trek

Temis thread on upcoming TV projects got me to thinking. What would an uncensored version of Star Trek look like?

Roddenberry established pretty much that Star Fleet guys were the milk toast members of the galaxy - the proverbial "dudley do rights," but in an uncensored version of Trek how would it be different?

It was called Enterprise, and it didn't work.

It was better than the several series before it, though.

And this is the wrong forum for a Star Trek thread.

Oh, sure. If you're talking about series such as My Mother the Car or Cop Rock. But better than any Trek series before it? Sorry. There you'd be wrong.

Yeah, really - it could have used more tits. Other than that, exemplary Star Trek as Gene would have wanted it.

Well, if they have "phase cannons" instead of "phasers", then perhaps they have "shows" instead of "showers".

I think we've found the basis for the NEXT Star Trek series.

There's a difference between the network allowing adult content, and the writers just scribbling in gratuitous nude scenes to add cheap sex appeal. Enterprise was embarrassingly bad in that regard, the Sato topless scene was just pathetic.

NuBSG and Farscape were both kind of already like that.

I see actual Trek as a network show, family friendly. I'm not sure it can be anything else. If Showtime / HBO did their own take it would probably be a new universe.
