This trailer holds the key to The Future of Trek...

https://youtu.be/lKfkkhEbUlY

This teaser for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country offers a unique perspective of hindsight for what was, at the time, the 25th anniversary of TOS and the end of that crew's adventures.

The trailer beautifully summarizes the themes at the heart of all great Star Trek: duty, honor, sacrifice, loyalty, wonder, a pioneering spirit, adventure, and the exploration of the human condition, the greatest of all frontiers.

Any new series needs to begin with the drafting of characters who embody these traits. The era, timeline, ship, even the plot itself, will and must be secondary to these.

We don't need another version of Kirk and Spock or existing characters. We need the core of what made those characters so enduring to be mined again and used as the foundation of the continuing voyages of Star Trek.

Well, that's not how any of the previous series were created...but okay...

We sure don't need the umpteenth generic spinoff.

Much of that voiceover dialogue was reused to sell Trek VHS tapes in the UK. That ad (not the ST6 one) was on pretty much every vid I bought back in the day!
