    I voted 25th century, but really I'd like any of them except the Academy idea (and I don't understand why anyone wants that, really) - but I'd probably watch it, too. :lol:

    The real next option wasn't in your poll, though. If there is a new series, it will almost certainly be set on another ship in the same universe and time period as the current movies.

    Do you think a mirror universe show would be good I would love it it would be a dark take on star trek.The mirror universe is so cool the uniforms look cool the ships look bad ass.I would like to see how the Terran empire got created.

    I really don't wanna be THAT guy, but I gotta say it - if you think Trek is about "cool ships" and being dark and bad ass, well you're REALLY missing the point

    I think a Smallville inspired Trek prequel series (although probably more of a reboot itself, as SV was) with Kirk, Spock and others at the academy could be a lot of fun. I loved the academy scenes in ST'09.

    A mirror universe show would be great maybe we could see the origins of the Terran empire.

    Of those options, I went with a Starfleet Academy series. Has the most potential for character growth and development, without relying on catsuits, big space battles, or hostile aliens every single week. Also it could give the chance for some cameos from TNG/DS9/VOY characters.

    Out of the others: A Klingon series would be dull; Mirror Universe would mean that the focus would be on the baddies and the horrific things they would do to get ahead; and 25th century would run the risk of being very technobabbly.

    That is why i would like to see a star trek show based in the mirror universe it would be a dark take on star trek and we would see what humanity has become in this universe.

    I'd watch an Academy series. I think the Pocket Book young adult novels from the '90s (both TOS and TNG) showed Starfleet Academy to be fertile ground for interesting sf stories without having Kirk (or whoever) save the world/universe every time, and the first Abrams movie had fun there, too.

    (No, I haven't read those books since before I was a teenager; I'll stick to my nostalgic memories rather than revisit them, thank you. :p)

    Right here buddy.
    Though I'd enjoy an Academy series, I'd rather see a 25th century series. I've discussed this in a couple threads but I'd focus a 25th century series on a fleet (an Admiral and several lead captains).

    A Klingon movie, I'd watch, but a series would be too much. Also, a mirror universe episode is okay but a series would be overkill (figuratively and literally).

    Sorry, none of the above. But I really don't think there will be another TV series anyway, so the point is moot.

    Would have to go for 25th Century. That said, I'm not optimistic that a new Trek show would be able to capture the odd balance between warm/fuzzy and tense drama that the show probably should have.

    A Klingon series as-is would be dull, but I liked Michael Dorn's proposition of a human colony on a Klingon planet. I think that has potential.

    I'd rather watch reruns of COPS and World's Dumbest. :lol:

    If there's another Trek series, I'd prefer it to feature Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise. I want it to be "Star Trek". If not, just create a brand new outer space series that can grow its own rules and universe.

    The problem with Star Trek's many series is that they have been so expensive in terms of costumes, makeup, effects, etc. That's too bad, because I think there's enough hard core fans that much of this could be de-emphasized and instead make them story driven. There were quite a few episodes in which real acting was going on and not mere entertainment. I'm going back and watching them from a chronological view to see how that will change my perspective on the shows and films.

    Hopefully the two reboots renewed interest in a potential series. It does make sense that some older previous actors might show up on a new series, and so I can see why people voted for a 25th Century show. Certainly there's lots of experienced actors turned directors as well.

    Seeing more about academy life was what I voted for. I felt that would be the least expensive in terms of sets and with far less effects. It also would likely be popular with the younger crowd. The die hard fans will watch regardless.

    There really isn't much on television right now that is compeling since the end of Breaking Bad. Shows from other countries like Äkta människor demonstrate the universal appeal of science fiction. That show can be rather tawdry at times but clearly are metaphorical as well about other sexual issues.

    We badly need some series in which the story lines are deeper and not just fluff. It might be that network television is simply dying due to the effect of TiVos and skipping commercials. As such, it might be far better for HBO or similar giants to take up the torch in order to produce something with very high standards. I'd love to see a Star Trek with the Sopranoes level of production values and writers. Ten episodes in a season that had excellent stories might be better than an alien of the week sort of shows.
