Re: Bob Orci: Spoke with CBS about returning Trek To TV

I'm sure it's been brought up before, but I wouldn't mind seeing a show set much farther in the future. Like Voyager or BSG in concept but taken a step farther, something like the first ship to explore outside of the Milky Way.

Like the 'Andromeda' series, except, you know, not sucking.

Re: Bob Orci: Spoke with CBS about returning Trek To TV

I've never understood the notion that the current film crew wouldn't be willing to do a television series, (or wouldn't work for television wages), seeing as how most of them are currently appearing as regulars or semi-regulars. on a television series anyway.

Quinto is on "American Horror Story"
Urban is one of the leads in "Almost Human"
Pegg shot a series pilot for TNT entitled "Mob City"
Cho has a recurring roll on "Sleepy Hollow"
Yelchin does tons of television voice work, so clearly has no bias against TV roles.

The only two main players who aren't either already on a show, or actively pursuing a show, are Pine and Saldana, and neither has ever said anything to imply they wouldn't be interested in doing regular television work.

Though if they continue to get regular film work, it would limit their availability for a TV series. And Quinto apparently wants to go back to doing stage work.

Also,the fact they'd have leverage to demand higher than average wages. They are the crew that starred in the hit films, likely they'd push for wages that fall in line with that status.

I don't know about that. Hollywood and the TV landscape are so in change right now - one can totally screw whatever knowledge one has gathered.

Re: Bob Orci: Spoke with CBS about returning Trek To TV

But please, please Mr. Orci, CBS, do not produce an animated series a la 'Star Wars Clone Wars'. That's like the dumbest piece of sith on television except of Germany's next Topmodel with Heidi Klum.

Except that they're already stars with the leverage to demand higher than average wages, and it's not kept them from being hired for television gigs.

As for Quinto wanting to go back to doing theatre... plenty of other television actors also do stage work too. I don't see any conflict.

Re: Bob Orci: Spoke with CBS about returning Trek To TV

Bleeding Cool carries very little credibility with me since the way they handled the whole missing episode recovery story with Doctor Who this past summer.

But assuming there is something to this, my take is:

-It's that animated series Orci's been saying might happen for the past few years.

-It'll be set on another starship, or even a space station in the Abramsverse, and we'll follow these guys in the years-long gap between Trek movies showing us life on the Enterprise. Which, really sounds like a similar situation we were in with things in the 90s.

Re: Bob Orci: Spoke with CBS about returning Trek To TV

I also reckon a Sulu-taking-command-of-an-Excelsior-type starship in the Abramsverse, would be pretty cool! Perhaps he could captain the three-nacelled, red-hulled Armstrong-Class starship, as seen at the Spacedock in STID (which is incidentally, the USS Excelsior NCC-1729) - and go in the opposite direction to which the USS Enterprise was going (as has been suggested by previous posters on other threads).

I'd be up for a series of that!

If we get a new series, I want it to focus on either a Kirk and Spock five-year mission or young Picard in command of the Stargazer.

Runner up would be a Captain Sulu series starring John Cho.
Yes to all of those! Any of those would be fine with me.

There is a little bit of a difference between trying to turn a reasonably successful film career into 'leverage' when negotiating over a part in a completely random show that doesn't actually need you and using your highly successful pre-existing role within a franchise as leverage when negotiating regarding a show that would, at the least, take some serious flack if it tried to recast your pre-existing part.

It wasn't even remotely dumb, in fact much of it was way above kids heads. At its lowest point it reached TPM levels of political tedium, at its highest it was visually fantastic with storylines full of charm and surprise. Very Star Wars.

I've heard repeatedly that The Clone Wars got very good. Unfortunately, I gave up on it halfway through the intro movie, which was even more unbearable than Attack of the Clones.
