    I think Paramount should make another "trilogy" of shows, which is what I've always considered TNG, DS9, and VOY. The first one could be based on a starship, the "traditional" Trek. The second could be based on a colony near or on the Romulan border, after the destruction of Romulus, that helps Romulan refugees, and battles off the various attacking Romulan factions which we all know would spawn immediately after the destruction of Romulus. The third could be based entirely on a Klingon ship, in a setting that, in the fifth or sixth season, could be transformed into a serialized war.

    So create another glut of shows that no one but the die-hards will watch?

    And it's questionable the die-hard fans would watch at that.

    I would love to see TOS rebooted on television in a similar manner to how it was done with the rebooted Battlestar Galactica. :bolian:

    ^ I thought about that too, but if they rebooted it with the new actors, it would have to be in the new timeline, where any episode involving Vulcan would be nixed, and episode involving Spock's mother would be nixed, the Menagerie would be nixed, (one of my favorite episodes), and a lot of the episodes would need a storyline change, to fit the timeline.

    It would be sweet if they hadn't messed around with timelines and such, but now it's just not possible... :(

    It would just be a case of having it be the mother of all reboots--wiping away both the prime and Abrams universes as if neither happened and starting over again with a clean slate. It would actually be very easy to do, especially if it looked noticeably different from both (different cast, slightly different uniforms, a different Enterprise NCC-1701, etc.).

    I think the age of any Trek continuity lasting more than ten years is pretty much passed. As with the various superhero movie franchises, Star Trek could very well be a property that will be continually reinvented and updated every so often.

    No argument from me! I am reminded of an episode of Red Dwarf when learns a remake of Casablanca is in the works. The man is livid! He says "The 2031 version with Zoltan O'Brian is a CLASSIC!" (I have zero idea what date actually was or the name of the actor, btw :p )

    Officer thinking! This is precisely what I'd like to see.

    I certainly hope so. Trek should periodically reinvent itself to stay relevant.

    I still think a fleet show would cover all the bases.

    I went with Station. I just love that kind of setting. Hub of travel! A colony will end up being little better than earth.

    I'd like to see a combination. A ship based out of a station, similar to the latter years of DS9. Each episode could be a two-parter or mini-arc with occasional stand-alones. One episode might involve the station, while the follow-up involves the ship, and other episodes or arcs would involve a plot requiring interaction with both locations. Unfortunately, you'd probably need 10 major characters.
