While I would watch every episode of a new Star Trek, I'm not happy with the current direction and I think Trek got tired back with Voyager's first season. If there was to be a new Trek, it'd really need to be handled right.

I would much rather see a new space opera franchise. The Trek formula of a hero ship and hero crew exploring strange new worlds doesn't need to be limited to Star Trek. We've had Stargate, Firefly, Farscaspe and Babylon 5, but they all have b een different than space exploration stories.

I would love to see something like Poul Anderson's Ensign Flandry or Robert Heinlin's Space Cadet. I even think Anne McCaffrey's Brawn and Brain series could be a great basis for a series. I think David Gerrold tried to do this with his Star Wolf series (but not on TV.)

I want to see something like Star Trek, only without the continuity baggage. Fresh slate.

Re: How desperate are you for a new Trek TV series?

I'm happy with big movies every few years, and monthly novels.

That said, a new series with the fun and adventure of TOS/nuTrek (and none of the pretentious twaddle of TNG) would be awesome.

Re: How desperate are you for a new Trek TV series?

I'm not even remotely desperate for a new Trek series, but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't love to see one. But if it's going to be just another reboot, I'll pass as it'll be my cue I've outgrown Trek.

There's no way for fans to know a-priori whether new Trek would be good or bad because all we can do is judge what came before. Real talent in Hollywood is capable of doing good work with anything they are given. The trick is for the gatekeepers to put the franchise into the right hands. That's where the ball is usually fumbled right at the start.

Re: How desperate are you for a new Trek TV series?

Meh, I'd watch one if it were on of course, but I don't consider a new Trek series to be a priority. To be honest, at the moment, I'd just like new programming in general. The new season of Doctor Who is still over five months away, Defiance three months. I watch The Walking Dead when the season gets its DVD release, so that won't be until the summer probably. Hell, there aren't even any movies for me to see in March. If it weren't for Pawn Stars, I wouldn't even have a reason to turn my TV on at the moment.

Not desperate, but I think we'll see a new series within the time I predicted.. Which roughly coincides with the 50tj anniversary.

I would love to see a new show with a mix of old themes and modern sensibilities.

But, of course. (But DS9, Farscape mostly, and one or two others, also qualify )

...And JMS was ready to do it, but, WB (Or the Online Provider) backed out before the deal was signed

if every four years we could have either ...

1) A single two hour movie.
2) Approximately eighty to one hundred TV episodes.

I would select the second option, were it available.

I have my wish list of what I want in a new series too, but that new series can not meet, exceed or fall short of my expectations if there's no new series in the first place.

I definitely crave a new series.

I want edgy, sexier new Trek series. Darker, faster, funnier.

This. Desperate conveys the wrong emotions and I have hours upon hours of TV & movies to keep me entertained. I would love a new Trek show but it would have to be done right, which means...

  1. Prime Timeline. Which SHOULD have been done instead of JJ running back to Kirk etc in my opinion.
  2. Well written, like Enterprise seasons 3 & 4 not seasons 1 & 2.
  3. Lets create a deeper, more permanent show like DS9 with the adventure of TNG/VOY.
Why "SHOULD" anyone in 2014 invest in a TV series and re-use the same mediocre concepts and stories that got Trek cancelled nearly 9 years ago?!

The level of self-indulgence and delusion boggles the mind here!
