The old gender reversal problem in a male dominated sexist world. What if Barney Stinson was a woman? Or gay. The character's acceptance would be completely different.

Hey, for my idea To Bold Go (see this subforum) I actually did have a female Kirk, probably his nephew Peter's grand-daughter. And a female Vulcan!

^I meant slut anyway, Kirk doesn't get paid for it.

It is safe to say Kirk is a slut.

I voted yes for the prime time line! Something like "Titan" different, but still Star Trek, picking up where STNG left off... sort of.

Regards,
Chuck

Yes, yes, yes and yes again!

Bring in Q or Captain Braxton to fix the "Adamsrift" and give us a new series with new characters in the timeline shortly after the end of Voyager.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

You know that's never going to happen outside of fanfiction right?

The whole point of the reboot was to get rid of the Primeverse, becuase it was beyond all chance of turning into a profitable venture again.

Why is that proving so hard for so many people to get through their thick skulls, the same adament stubborn entitlement that killed the primeverse is what they think will bring it back?

It's past sad.

Which is a reason why I go for fanfiction these days.

I don't think that the Primeverse is beyond all chances to be turned into a profitable and most of all enjoyable and successfull venture again. I) think that's what they have to do if they don't want to lose the ardent die-hard fans together with those who see recent Trek as a temporarily interesting novelty before moving on to other trendy things.

Just look and see what we had. We had this universe created in TNG, DS9 and VOY with hundreds of exciting races and enormous possibilities to come up with good stories about all this. And what do the fools do? They regress back to pre-TOS, followed by a lousy remake of the same series. It's like if the whole music industry should abandon the technology of today and go back to 78 rpm records and technology from the 30's.

It was not "adament stubborn entitlement" which (temporarily) killed the primeverse (the real Star Trek) but greed and stupidity.

The NextGen'ers said the same thing about TOS. Anything is possible when enough time goes by.

I'd rather the next series do what TNG did to TOS and set it in the 25th century.

I'm with the Lynx on this one. So many possibilities in the prime-verse unexplored yet.

I'm not so sure. They were already to the point by Voyager that they were retelling stories and just gluing different pieces of rubber to actors foreheads to make "new" aliens.
