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.
I wouldn't mind seeing DS9 itself pick up where it left off, with some new characters, obviously.

But I am not so desperate that I would want to see ANYTHING remotely connected to Abrams/nuTrek.


Another possibility that strikes me as fun would be to set a new series in the future, with effectively warp 10+/transwarp drive and common (or at least more common) extragalactic travel.

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.
Hah. I'm in the opposite situation. I can barely keep up with all the good returning shows: The Americans, Bates Motel, Hannibal, Vikings, etc.

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

I don't see how it really matters if a series set post-TOS era references the Kirk who fought the Gorn or the Kirk who fought Nero. It doesn't really matter, if all it's going to be is the odd mention.

Expecting a new show to continue the tone and style of TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT is wishful thinking. Television has moved on.

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!
Well aren't you special.

As much as it pains me to deprive you of an opportunity to feel like you're better than people, they should invest because it's a valuable franchise that will get people to check it out just by having its name. And the idea is that it wouldn't reuse the same mediocre concepts and stories, it would come up with new, well written stories with a fresh, modernized take on the same established universe. Nobody wants another TNG rehash like Voyager. They just want Star Trek to keep what makes it special instead of becoming just another popcorn action flick.

H5 on The Americans! Also The Following and Justified.

Not at all. I'm sick of remakes and reboots (and not just pertaining to Trek). Give me something original.

Not at all. If it is Trek-like in the way I like, great. If just action-adventure, nope. YMMV.

I agree. Moving forward is the way to go. A 25th century TNG/DS9 hybrid (with nuBSG production values) would be ideal!
Make it a big Colony-ship to the Beta-quadrant or something to avoid Canon. Sort of like a moving DS9/Babylon-5.

Prequels and reboots? Meh. No thanks.

How about the future? As far in the future relative to DS9 as DS9 is to TOS?

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

I'm afraid that the days of STAR TREK's dowdy, cerbral image are well and truly over. Time to sex up the television franchise with popcorn sensibilities. If they make it entertaining, exciting and passionate enough, they may even end up calling it STAR TREK: Gets - as in "gets" the ratings! It paints a pretty picture ...

Scandal, The Blacklist, NCIS, Homeland, some of the most popular scripted show on TV today. Which of them fit the profile of sexy popcorn? In the top ten, top twenty, which fits?

Yeah, the best TV these days is arguably better than it's ever been.
