Could someone ever make a "New Voyages"-type fan series for TNG?

Yes, the sets and make-up would be a tad more elaborate, but after seeing a number of fan-made series based on the original crew, it might be interesting to see someone revisit the TNG crew.

Why not ask this in the Fan Productions forum?

There are several groups doing fan films set in the 24th century as I remember.

Re: Could someone ever make a "New Voyages"-type fan series for TNG?

I recently discovered a TNG fan film, but it's a little more unusual than you might think.
Offically, it's porn parody, but they actual wrote a real story for it, which involves The alternate universe Tasha Yar from Yesterday's Enterprise being found by by Picard's Enterprise, and naturally Sela and the Romulans are involved. Apparently the offical dvd release had a second disc with all the xxx content edited out and it still makes a 45ish minute story. The edited version is on youtube as Star Trek A Tale of Two Cities, and it overall looks pretty good. The production values are pretty similar to the best fan films, but there will be the odd bad wig and iffy prop. The actor who plays Picard is the same actor who plays him in the Intrepid fan films, and it's startling how much he resembles Patrick Stewart. For what it's worth a stunt double is used for his sex scene in the XXX content.
I only watched a little just to get a feel for what I thought of it, as I'm in the middle of a Trek marathon, and am going to wait and watch this in it's entirety when I get thru TNG again (I'm in the middle of TOS season 1 right now, so it'll be awhile).

Now that is a detailed production, they even have the Mintakan tapestry on Picard's ready-room chair. .

It is very good looking, from sets to overall with the actors. It's not perfect, Riker has a goatee not a beard, Tasha's wig is pretty distracting, but aside from minor quibbles, it looks excellent.
