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

If written well with good characters, and if it were more of a serial nature like DS9 or season 3 Enterprise, I would definitely love a 25th century Star Trek TV series. I would love to see the politics of the Alpha quadrant after the destruction of Romulus. Would it resemble Star Trek Online? Would it be different? So much story there to tell, and I would be far more interested in that, than an Abramsverse TV series, that likely wouldn't feature Kirk and crew anyway.

The Abramsverse may have revitalized Star Trek and is making more money than Trek previous films, but they also are far more expensive to make, too.

If Star Trek returned to the small screen, the budget and FX would be more like that of BSG, and if written well, there is no argument that convinces me that continuing the Abramsverse on TV INSTEAD OF the Prime universe in the 25th century would be more interesting.

I like the Abramsverse movies fine, but I really could care less what happens in that universe, beyond the characters. In the prime universe, I want to know more about everything!

Lets not start with 'whichever timeline is dead', plus Kirk is alive in the 24th century in the books after "Generations", and could be alive in the 25th (knowing him, he'll cheat death indefinitely).

With two movies that have done 900+ million dollars combined, I'd say general audiences disagree with you.

Both died, but got better. And Spock is so not dead, there are now two of him!

With one exception:

Lets see a Federation dealing with the destruction of Romulus, and refugees from the fragmenting empire.

Kirk and Spock are dead. DEAL WITH IT.

If you don't want Kirk and Spock, then you don't actually want what actually matters in Star Trek.

You may aswell have a new sci TV show based on a new universe, worlds, races, characters, gadgets etc.

Because anything else with a Star Trek label is a diluted spin-off which is doomed for failure.

This isn't a 'which movie made more' thread but does your comparison take prices of movie tickets as time progresses in effect? Movie tickets cost more (not to mention 3D and RealD up-pricing). It's also hard to compare the number of tickets sold as there is more people alive today than there was back then.

Tell that to the 7 seasons of Next Generation.

Doubtful. Even Voyager, which was no where near starfleet, had references to previous mythos.

And my statement has nothing to do with which movie made more. But that Kirk and Spock definitely aren't dead as far as general audiences go.

Oh dear, I dont think you get it at all, and you still think this is 1995.

Your sentlements of TNG/VOY/DS9 is just that, sentlement. And perhaps you can gather together a few hundred fans who want that type of Trek on TV, but at the cost of repelling millions of other potential viewers.

Kirk and Spock are fictional characters. Fictional characters never die.

Yes, I would watch it but I hope it would be in the original timeline.

How would making a 25th century show automatically repel millions of viewers, and how is your "Because anything else with a Star Trek label is a diluted spin-off which is doomed for failure" not sentiment?

Ah. Gotcha.

I figured it might have been a typo, but wasn't sure.

While I'd give a 25th century Star Trek spin-off a fair chance, I'd be much more interested in one of these than any new Star Trek spin-off, sequel, prequel, reboot or remake.
