    I was disappointed by 2009 reboot of star trek because i hoped it was an opportunity to put off the most naif part of star trek. Unfortunately the reboot highlight the part of star trek i don't like.

    I'd like tp see a reboot of star trek like the reboot of BSG:

    -no alien
    -no superweapons
    -no magic technology (transponder,replicator,universal translator)
    -no particle of the week
    -with more internal coherence
    -no time travel
    ecc

    and you?

    No!

    I like Trek exactly the way it is (both original and Abramsverse). The less it's like BSG, the better. I can't think of a worst direction Trek should go in.

    Doesn't sound at all like Trek, though.

    Don't care. Both were OK, neither one is Trek. JJ did just fine.

    No. I love Star Trek's current status.

    I wouldn't mind a story set in the TMP era where tech was still advanced but very limited compared to TNG. I'd place limits on transporters and I'd want to see alien civilisations more limited in number so we develop perhaps a dozen species in stead of aliens of the week with one defining trait. God-like aliens should be Vorlon level not Q level.

    I would not want to reboot established characters with different genders but I would want to see equalisaton of the sexes (i.e. double the number of women) and crew members with relevant skills picked for relevant missions.

    I am fine with conflict among the humans but not as ever-present as NuBSG.

    I'm even writing a TMP-styled comic where I'm doing exactly this, although I'm not sure how successful it has been in its style and implementation...

    I'm all for re-rebooting Trek one day and making some more fundamental changes(not yet though! I loved Into Darkness and would love a sequel), but to make it anything like BSG?

    Hell no! Bleh. Cool aliens, cool futuristic technology, and fun and excitement, please.

    Heck no.

    I don't think I would enjoy that at all (although NuBSG was not a bad show).

    How do you have a United Federation of Planets without aliens?

    How would it still be "Star Trek" without these elements? No strange new worlds, no new life and new civilization?

    Warp drive is pretty magical, so no FTL travel?

    What do you mean "more internal coherence"? For group a shows and films produced in a time that spans nearly five decades and by several different people its coherence, either by accident or design, is rather amazing.

    ùmy idea is to set star trek thousands of years in the feature:

    earth colonies many world, then there were wars for the independence of the colonies, a space middle age, with lost of technology and knowledge. The eart will be discriminate for its past of oppression and submit to occupation by one or more of indipendent colonies.

    I begin a serie here: the colonie/colonies which occupy earth allow to earth people to explore the space, but gradually, and finally with a long rage exploration ship. It'll be a rebbot of Star trek enterprise.

    Sounds like it could be interesting, but it doesn't sound like Star Trek. Maybe it's a Firefly reboot.

    That's my idea of a serious rebbot of star trek; as i said, problaby many original BSG fan said the same of new BSG.

    Damn, many TOS fan problaby said the same of TNG and Enterprise, to don't speak of the 2009 reboot

    I can be wrong but I believe BSG was a real reboot and Star Trek not, Star Trek was a time travel movie were they are not going back to the 24th century.
    So they had some rules to follow

    No warp drive, no transporter, no Vulcans (including no Spock), no Data, no Klingons... might make a perfectly decent show, but it wouldn't be Star Trek.

    Another thing:

    no turbolift.

    Really, they have no sense, they are just a wwaste of space.

    Maybe they can have some sense in a ship like Ent-D with a sauder section of 460 m, but just to connect stratetic point of the ship (bridge, engineering, officer quarters, shuttle bay)
