Re: What do you think Star Trek will do for its 50th anniversary?

Prior to the movie's release, Steven Moffat described it as "a love letter to the fans." Of course, given my experience as a Trekkie, that raised a lot of red flags. Thankfully, Moffat and Co. delivered it well. But the last time Star Trek had "a love letter to the fans," we got TATV. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Hopefully for Star Trek's 50th, we'll get something much better than TATV.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised in this day and age that a massive "digital content repackaging" type of service was offered... $200 flat rate for every episode of every series ever, maybe streamed to the player of your choice. I can see why they'd keep the current ongoing films out of the equation, but with the exception of the TNG HD re-releases, all those Trek hours are gathering dust.

Lots of re-releases with new logos, a made for TV/DVD Special with retrospective interviews and same stories we have all heard before and a big expensive table top book with photos we have seen before also.

Not really expecting anything great since the people who control things now do not really 'get it' and look upon the fans as kooks to be exploited...

Yeah, I'm leaning toward re-releases with a couple new interviews and slicker packaging.

Steven Moffat - Oh no, he did-N'T.
Yeah, "valentine to the fans" lives on in infamy.

You know, I think as a pretty big fan base here, we've set the bar pretty goddamn low. I mean, seriously. So far it sounds about as awesome as being kicked in the balls by Roddenberry Jr. for Trek's 50th.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
For next year's 50th anniversary of STAR TREK (TM)
GET KICKED IN THE BALLS BY RODDENBERY JUNIOR (TM)

The Las Vegas Hilton welcomes TREK(TM) fans from around the world to the fabulous 50th bash for TREK - where instead of a new series, either animated or live action, instead of a third film in time for the event or in time for any meaningful HD upgrade to either DS9(TM) or VOYAGER(TM), Eugene "Rod" Roddenbery(TM) will be here with some powerful and rich CBS(TM) executives. Fans willing to brave long lineups will be able to be KICKED IN THE BALLS* for free, both in celebration of TREK's milestone, and in sarcastic symbolism of our being out of touch with TREK fans.

In 2014, TREK YOUR BALLS OFF!

* = Female or otherwise testicle-free TREK fans will be given their choice of an adequately even kick either in the backside or front

I'm hoping we get a special movie where we see Chris Pine team up with Scott Bakula and a previously unknown Enterprise captain.

You know, if they go with Captain April who is depicted in the Countdown to Darkness comic as a renegade captain who is eventually stripped of his rank, it would fit the analogy perfectly.

I'd say Scott Bakula would count as an unknown Enterprise captain.

A press conference in which Orci complains about not being able to make money from toys, an animated series, and cocktail napkins emblazoned with the Star Trek logo because the people at CBS are MEAN!

That is to say, we'll get a new movie.

They'll release some overpriced pewter collection and call it a day.

I'd be happy with just a set of those Kelvin salt and pepper shakers.

Re: What do you think Star Trek will do for its 50th anniversary?

Since Prime Verse is most likely dead in the eyes of the execs, anything new relating to any of the TV series (apart from a documentary) is highly unlikely. If I was going to put money on it, I'd say the next movie, a documentary with a small amount of unreleased material and some actor interviews and a load of re-runs of classic episodes from all the series.

A feature-length TV special pulling in members from all 5 series would require cheesy time-travel or holodeck rubbish. Doctor Who can pull that off, because time travel is the whole premise of that show.

It would be possible to do a '20 years later' thing with TNG, DS9 and VOY crews, a bit like B5 'Sleeping in Light' but I doubt it would happen. Doesn't mean we cant fan'fic it though
