    Believable. Animation is cheap and I can see the executives waiting to see if STID will have the same appeal that ST09 did. Probably the most likely way we'll see Trek on TV any time in the near future.

    Animate it and get cheap but convincing voice actors instead of trying to pay for the "real" ones.

    Exactly. I don't see anyone shelling out the cash for a live action series at this point. Could be a solid animated series, for sure.

    So ths will probably feature the Enterprise in the 20 years time interval between Robau's Death and Kirk signing up to Starfleet.

    Maybe they will use that project that was cancelled.

    The next frontier would be an alien captain, if they have the guts to do it.

    Sounds like a mighty fine plan. A well crafted CG series ... maybe more of a miniseries format?

    If it will be a mini i hope they will do something that was not done before like a spy ship or a ship that ferries special forces around.

    Yeah, why use the actors from the movie? That would be The Stupid tm. :rolleyes:

    Well, it would certainly drive costs up. Also, I'm guessing most of the cast would probably pass on it. It seems to work for Clone Wars.

    So it sounds like if this goes through I get more adventures from the NuTOS crew. Yay!

    I'll believe it when and if it happens.

    I hope that it's about exploration. That's the whole reason I started watching Star Trek to begin with.

    Good grief, the comments on that youtube video :lol:

    Anyway, we'll see what happens after the STID box office numbers come in.

    A Trek animated show is a good idea, but they should really try to get a studio that knows how to do CGI well if they're going all CG (which I doubt, because that's going to cost way more in terms of budget and time, plus it looks like shit if you can't texture/shade it properly). I'd like to see a 2D show with CG ships, but I'll give a full CG Trek cartoon a shot.

    This isn't exactly new. The video was posted in July.

    12 episode series on Showtime or AMC would be my wish, but fat chance.

    Not interested in this at all, has to be a proper series for me with actual actors.

    I think you'll be SOL for a long time then.
