^^I heard Janeway's loco. Maybe she can order the destruction of X in movies while shrieking or something.

Lots of people pay money to see them. Mostly younger people.

They can spin off movies for each of the captains: $$$
Not enough people pay money to see any of them.

Pass.

Using Saw as evidence of anything negates any argument you're trying to make.

No one gives enough of a shit about Sisko, Janeway, Archer, and at this point...even Picard to warrant the craft services fee. That was the problem with Star Trek for pretty much the last two decades.

DS9 petered out.
Voyager bombed.
Enterprise bombed.
Nemesis embarrassed pretty much everyone.

Who in their right mind thinks combining all of these failures into one massive movie with a couple of octogenarians is a formula for box office success?

Re: What were they thinking? AVENGERS style TREK

It's not about success, it is about making trek only enjoyed by a few elite trekkies and alienating casual viewers and potentially new generation of trek fans.

Excuse me? TNG was a huge success back then, DS9 as well ... and even Voyager used to be very popular. Just because some over saturated people like you are suffering from "franchise fatigue" doesn't mean it was all a steaming pile of horseshit!

Unfortunately, Modern Trek has the stink of failure on it after two movies bombed and three series all left the air with sliding viewership.

Neither DS9 nor Voyager were popular. TNG cracked into the mainstream 20 years ago and hasn't cranked anything out in over a decade.

It's. Dead. Even I wouldn't go see a movie based on this creative abortion and I'm a massive nerd.

Re: What were they thinking? AVENGERS style TREK

I can't help thinking a lot of discussions like these boil down to TNG people who aren't TOS fans being distressed and maybe angry about the reboot of Kirk, Spock, et al probably closing the door on the TNG and TNG-era characters forever.

This. I've had the same suspicion for a while but figured it was best to not poke the bear.

Of course it's dead. Didn't stop Jigsaw from working.
