Re: series 6,, what will it be like

I know that this idea has not been well received by many in the past, but...
I've always been intrigued by the idea of a series set during or after the Fall of the Federation. Less comfy era, less perfect humans, less tech, more conflict and drama. Maybe still have pockets of Federation-loyal systems, maybe have one or several core worlds (not necessarily Earth) in turmoil, or even occupied (but not by a local rival like the Romulans or Klingons or Borg). The Federation of the late 24th Century would simply lose its cohesion for one or many reasons, and become a scattered collection of separate systems or small empires, many competing with each other for dwindling tech resources/knowledge, others outright hostile to each other.
No doubt others could flesh it out better than I'm doing.

And yes, there's a percentage of the fan base that rightly points out that part of Trek's allure is its optimistic view of the future, so a Fall of the Federation would not be Trek. Maybe. But IMHO, and as I once read, Trek's real center is its heart, the best of human values triumphing against adversity. There just doesn't seem to be much adversity left in the late-24th & early 25th Century.

Is it 2161 yet?

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

I don't get it.

There are always comments of

"Trek must move forward!"


"Trek must have a war!"

But this animated series idea sucks.

Re: Fall of the Federation

I was always very suspicious of the idea, but I've actually been very intrigued by Star Trek: Lost Frontier. It could work on TV.

I dunno. I've spent so long trying to come up with a good Series VI premise that it hurts my mind to think about it. Voyager's premise was bloody brilliant, in retrospect. It took the whole Trek vision and turned it on its head while still being Trek. I suppose I'd try to think along those lines.
Star Trek: Excelsior: a full-cast Star Trek audio drama, releasing episodes semi-monthly. With more than 100,000 downloads, we must be doing something right!

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

In Star Trek:Online, Federation is adapting Borg transwarp technology, isn´t it?

So what about giant transwarp hub with connections in this and other galaxies and with high probabillity of hitting dimensional and temporal anomalies/glitches. Except of Federation ship(s) they woud have Klingons and Romulans as their protection. Romulan would be one of main characters.Ferengi would be very different and klingon - influenced by this era ( constant klingon occupation force would be only thing that would keep Grand Nagus Rom in power).Kelvans would be primary adversaries, at least for time being.
So we would have:
- Stationary base
- Unlimited research
- Reminding us that Janeway, Seven of nine and their contribution to mankind´s technology were the best thing since sliced bread....

Everobody wins!

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

Hopefully, a good story line with some characters we can like. Using new names for the characters.

Sort of like TNG.

Who would a have ever thought an older bald Frenchman would become one of Star Trek's most well known Capitans.

I always said it should take place 80 years after TNG on the enterprise.

I'd watch it. I honestly believe that a new animated series is the safest way for CBS to bring Trek back to the small screen. Production costs should be much cheaper and they could go with a half hour format to make it even more so.

Re: series 6,, what will it be like

Titan would be good as an animated series, it would probably be too expensive to do live-action with all the non-humanoid characters.

I would hope that they make something that takes place maybe 20 years after nemesis. It would take place on the newly commissioned USS Enterprise NCC-1701-F. That way they could have all the former tng characters guest star as admirals and higher ups.
