Re: If they made a 25th century TV series, would you watch it?

I'd watch. As with everything, if it was good I'd keep watching.

I reject the idea that any series without the Original Series' core characters would automatically fail. Because A) I disagree with the concept that anyone gives enough of a shit outside of fandom to notice, and B) because it did succeed before, and it's been a decade since the last non-Kirk Trek happened and will likely be at least another before it returns. By then, I doubt anyone will care enough to decide not to watch the show return just because it doesn't have Kirk.

^I have to agree that tv has never been the same after Trek went off the air.

Re: If they made a 25th century TV series, would you watch it?

Last week I watched Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and then Thor: The Dark World the next day. The difference in scope, scale, everything was unbelievable - S.H.I.E.L.D. felt like a Marvel Universe fan film in comparison. Old Trek movies and episodes were made in a very similar format to the TV shows (hence the "extended episode" feel) but that wouldn't be true today. Unless they made it land-based Academy series or a Eugenics Wars prequel or something along those lines, a new TV series would likely compare very badly to the current movies.

I would watch it as long as it doesn't turn into a doom and gloom series or something like Stargate Universe or screw up established Trek history. It also depends on the characters. Are they as good as the TOS, TNG, DS9 and Voyager characters, then it will be OK.

Agree Lynx.

I don't want my trek to be like BSG.

Agreed. Let Star Trek stay off the air until this current trend stops completely.

I just hope I live long enough to see it.

I voted "no" because "25th century" is just a meaningless time period, not a premise for a show. As I have said many times, a show is about the format, the characters, and the kinds of stories you're going to tell.

"A meaningless time period" was enough for TNG which originally just had "24th-Century" as its premise.

But the use of "25th-Century" here is just referring to a show that isn't set during the time of previous Trek shows and can have a different status quo, tone, and look from any of them. From there, new situations, stories, and characters can be developed that are unique to its time.

And just where is the pitch document which said "The new Star Trek is set in the 24th century" full stop? No, the premise of that show was it's a new generation of characters on a new ship many years after Kirk and Co., not "the 24th century".

It's no difference whatsoever.

After that television series by Glen Larson, we should just let Buck Rogers keep the 25th century to himself.

Yeah, and even the OP clarified as much.

But it's really a common sense question. Of course everybody here would actually watch at least an episode of it. The question is if they would keep watching it, and there's no way to know that because the premise isn't enough to give an idea of the quality. It really is too generic of a question.

Maybe if it were rephrased as, "Are you interested in a 25th century series?" then there would be a lot more no votes. I think that's probably what a lot of the no votes currently are for anyways. Or people are more interested in the JJ stuff only or think that this is just another "prime continuity" issue. Is it?

I have absolutely no desire to see a 25th Century STAR TREK. This need to keep pushing it into the next century beyond the last TREK is just absurd, to me. Sorry ... I would not watch it.

^I was going to say some people would outright not watch it but 2takesfrankes is the other side of the coin on the subject (the last one did, but your current avatar does not take two takes ). I like making polls (enough to have a Modder point it out) just to see what kind of fans are out there. I personally liked the continuing mission, and even though I like NuTrek, I'd prefer another generation skip.
