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

If you read between the lines, setting a "Trek" TV show based on being further in the future simply means more of the same ideas and story telling that killed Star Trek 10 years ago, so this means new Federation ships, new baddies with lumps on their heads, and new technobabble for the heros to shoot themselves out of trouble with.

This will appeal to the 245 purists in this world who would watch it on youtube, but an instant fail in the entertainment mainstream.

There was quite a lot of negativity about TNG when it was first announced: "Why go forward a century?" "It won't work without Kirk and Spock." "No one will buy it." "It will fail horribly."

They could have done the NuTrek story in the 25th century or even better. All you need is the right writers and it's not like the same old federation, same old baddies and same old technobabble rebooted is going to last 20 years down the line.

That's your opinion. There is nothing factual that would prove a 25th century show would instantly fail.

Oh, you think so, eh? My current avatar does not take two takes? It doesn't ... "do it" ... for ya? Now, listen, here: Genie Francis is Jonathan Frakes' all ... his Real Life "Imzadi." Together, they make perfect sense - as a couple and as my current avatar ...
