STAR TREK REBOOT - My Vision

INTRODUCTION
What if in 1987 the original series was rebooted, the original crew in brand new modern adventures? Aesthetically that is my vision for a Star Trek reboot, however since 1987 we have had a whole load of new characters, aliens and ideas introduced in spin-offs. Why not use that catalogue to create a ‘DC/Marvel Universe’ of Star Trek? Any TNG-era details are not set 100 years into the future, but rather the ‘present day’ of this new 23rd Century.
Our backstory is similar. Vulcans made First Contact with Earth in the late 21st Century as Zefram Cochrane tests his first warp drive vessel. In this universe it is the Humans, Vulcans, Andorians and Betazoids who form the United Federation of Planets.
Starfleet does end up in a short (and devastating) was with the Klingons, however this ended in the Organian Peace Treaty – the signing was the last work of Admiral Jonathan Archer.
I haven't worked out the pilot story yet but I have a few solid things laid out below. As for 'vision' I do have some specific fan designs for ships/uniforms that I absolutely adore, but obviously would not use without permission.


THE UNIVERSE

As our story begins, the Klingon War was a decade ago. The Federation is at peace doing what it set out to do – explore.
Our main setting is the THIRD Enterprise; NCC-1701 after NCC-101 and NX/NCC-01. Captains have included Jonathan Archer, Jackson Winter, Robert April and Chris Pike.
The Romulans are known but reclusive. They are rumoured to be quite militant, and have a small empire – not nearly as much as the Klingons. The Vulcans – particularly Spock – know a lot more about them than the rest of the Federation but are keeping big secrets. These two races, as with the Ferengi, are pretty much as they were in the prime universe.
During the war many ships were lost One of which was the USS VOYAGER, which went missing in the Badlands. This Voyager ha a tough, gritty and trying fight for survival through the Delta Quadrant. And yes they encountered the Borg.
In the corner of the galaxy bordering with the Gamma Quadrant is a station called TEROK NOR. This orbits a planet called Bajor, which has in the past 5 years left the tyrannical reign of a race called the Cardassians, who Starfleet has never encountered. Bajor is in negotiations to join the Federation.

CREW OF USS ENTERPRISE NCC-1701

CAPTAIN JAMES TIBERIUS KIRK
James ‘Jim’ T Kirk is a respectable but ambitious officer. Born on a farm in Iowa, he was raised by his mother Winona as his father George was in space. This guy had a solid upbringing with Uncle Forrest as his surrogate father – he’s not nearly as a jerk as his Trek09 counterpart!
Winona is unsure whether Starfleet is the right path for her son, however Forrest is encouraging. Jim joins Starfleet aged 16. One month later, the Kirks receive word that the USS Stargazer is destroyed with George onboard. Many survived however, including its Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Jim, in tribute to his father, is even more determined and sees himself doing big things. As a cadet he is soley responsible for saving all his classmate during an away mission which wins him high commendation.
Jim’s Starfleet career is nearly jeopardised, however, when he reprograms the ‘No Win Scenario’ Kobyashi Maru. It is Chris Pike who persuades Starfleet to give him another chance.
Kirk joins the security crews on the Hood and Defiant before joining Captain Pike on their Enterprise. He is made Head of Security before First Officer (NOTE: In this universe the first officer always doubles with another role.)
When Pike & Mitchell are lost he is given the Captaincy by Admiral Nogura. He is assigned a new Science Officer/Diplomatic Advisor named Spock, his old friend Leonard McCoy is made Medical Officer and Uhura is made First Officer.

MR. SPOCK
Spock is son of Vulcan Ambassador Sarek and a human named Amanda Grayson. He was raised on Vulcan and passed the Science Academy with flying colours, wanting to please his parents.
He has always been conflicted by his human side, Spock was picked on as a child and this frustrated him. He immersed himself in work wanting to compress his emotions and wanted to learn about Earth, so this inspired him to follow in his father’s footsteps and join the Diplomatic Corps.
After a time there Spock returned to Vulcan where he learned of a reunification movement underground on Romulus. Thousands of years ago both races were unified, but the Romulans found their own space and hid behind a ‘Neutral Zone’, rejecting pure logic and invading local planets.
Spock has spent time with the reunificationists on Romulus and truly believes in their cause. Upon his return Spock joins the Enterprise as Science Officer and Diplomatic Advisor to Captain Kirk. He wishes however to return to Romulus and continue secret talks...

DOCTOR LEONARD H. McCOY
Leonard McCoy joined Starfleet following his divorce to complete his Medical Training. He got to know Jim Kirk on the hood as his physician – regularly fixing him up following planet scrapes and Holodeck adventures.
McCoy left the Hood following the ships’ decommissioning, returning to Georgia to open a practice.
When Captain James T Kirk took over the Enterprise, Dr Mark Piper retired. Kirk tracked McCoy to his practice and begged him to become the Enterprise’s CMO, to which he agreed after some reluctance.

COMMANDER NYOTA UHURA
An intelligent and warm woman, Uhura initially used her linguistic skills as a translator for Starfleet Intelligence before helping to further develop the Universal Translator. Later she became Communications officer for Chris Pike.
Nyota has a sympathetic ear as an empathic Betazoid and often acts as an unofficial Counsellor to her crewmates. She accepts her friend James T Kirk’s invitation to become his First Officer.

LT. CMDR MONTGOMERY SCOTT
Practically the same as his Prime counterpart, ‘Scotty’ helped design many key engines Starfleet use today, he built practically the whole engine system for the Enterprise – his baby. His wit is sarcastic but can often be taken in good humour

CHIEF HIKARU SULU
A middle aged ‘Chief Petty Officer’, Sulu cut his teeth as one of the finest pilots during the War. He is happy to stay where he is rather than be promoted.
Sulu is still haunted by the death of his husband Travis Mayweather during the war, but he enjoys reminiscing about his past in order to teach the next generation of officers. His daughter Demora is also a helmswoman on the Endeavour.

ENSIGN PAA’VEL CH’KOV
Paa’Vel is a chen Andorian Navigator coming on board direct from the Academy having been handpicked by Pike. Although she struggled at the Academy, Ch’Kov was determined to prove her worth coming onboard as a junior. Despite academic difficulty she has quickly proved herself as a security officer, however she can be a difficult and seemingly abrupt person.

Thank you very much!!

I grew up with TNG and it's through New Voyages/Phase II that I fell in love with TOS so why wait 100 years to introduce TNG elements? It is a bit different to what other people do.

I didn't want to change the characters too much; I just took inspiration from all series/films to create new backstories for the characters. I guess the pilot/first movie would be first contact with the Romulans.

Also I wanted an Andorian onboard so I replaced Chekov; and the Endeavour is basically the Enterprise-D but obviously there's already an Enterprise so I needed a new name!

Eek!

If I write anything it will be a screenplay for a film/TV episode.

I'm nowhere near ready to start first I need to plot out the actual story.

Thanks!!
