(Emphasis added) I think this is something that needs to be recognized. Part of my problem with any Trek film is similar to any problem of taking a TV series and put it in a film. TV series usually have an ensemble cast, with episodes focusing on different characters. A film usually has one or two main characters (three in TOS films' case: Kirk, Spock and McCoy), with the rest supporting the action. I think seeing a new Trek TV series, in Abrams verse or another time period, would be interesting. The struggle I see with Trek right now is the idea of being relevant in a manner that TOS was in the 60s. The timeless commentary that was sometimes missed due to the goofiness of the plot. Don't get me wrong, I think Abrams films do a good job with the social commentary. I think a series will need to recognize how to do the same, in addition to telling good stores, to continue on with the show.
