    I don't want it to die. I just don't want it to mutate into something way different and call itself Star Trek. An analogy would be if you took Superman and made him all gritty and dark. Or told a story with three pigs in it that had nothing to do with preparedness and planning ahead. I'd love to see some real Star Trekkish Trek come back on. animated is the most cost effective way. Experts on this board say it's not gonna happen. OK, then. I'll watch my old dvd's. Be well.

    I have never written a fanfic, but I have one in my head. For, like 25 years. Involving Elvis. '70s Elvis. Maybe someday.

    Thanks, every bit as precise as the thread title!:devil:
    As long as there are profits to be made, Star Trek will live... in one form or another. Will it be the Star Trek defined by your mind? Maybe not, but it will live as long as the owners of the Star Trek property are willing to keep investing.:vulcan:
