The Kelvin timeline movies have a whole bunch of flaws, but for some reason I still enjoy the heck out of them. And as much as I'd love new Kelvin timeline stories with those versions of Kirk, Spock, etc., I've really always thought it would be fun explore the Kelvin timeline through the eyes of a different ship, captain, crew, all of that stuff, but do it as a TV show. Of course, I knew it probably would never happen due to the rights being split between Paramount and CBS, with CBS holding the TV rights. But now with Viacom and CBS merging, I say lets do it! IDW's Star Trek: Ongoing and Star Trek: Boldly Go series were kind of hit-and-miss, but even in the bad times it was still really intriguing to me to see how the Kelvin timeline evolved by mixing new ideas with concepts from the Prime timeline. And personally, I feel like that's what "TV Star Trek" needs right now - the freedom to mix new ideas and classic ones. To create something new, but yet familiar. I'm NOT picking on Discovery or Picard; I really enjoyed Discovery season 2, and I poop my pants at least seven times a day in excitement over the upcoming Picard show. But regardless how further into the future you go, be it 20 years or 930 years, the Canon Police will be there with their batons waiting to inflict pain upon those whom make even the slightest diversions from established canon. The beauty of the Kelvin timeline, despite its flaws, was the [mostly] clean slate it had. The universe was their oyster! They could do [for the most part] whatever they wanted to do! Now, take that [mostly] clean slate, throw in new & fresh characters, and imagine what you can do! I'm not saying they should do the Kelvin timeline TV spinoff INSTEAD of Disco, Picard, Section 31, Lower Decks, etc. I'm saying do the Kelvin timeline TV spinoff IN ADDITION to those shows. CBS All Access has said they want at least eleventy billion new Star Trek shows to keep the Trekkies/Trekkers/Trekksters subscribed. With Viacom and CBS merging and unifying the Star Trek brand, and one of the architects of the Kelvin timeline (Alex Kurtzman) being the leader of the Star Trek Global Group (or whatever fancy corporate name it's called), suddenly this is within the realm of possibility! Some will argue that having two different timelines (Prime and Kelvin) coexisting at the same time on CBS All Access would be confusing. To that, I say look at all these other genre franchises with multiple versions of the same character(s) and settings existing at the same time. Heck, in CW's Arrowverse, one of the shows (Supergirl) literally takes place in an alternate universe. And like those shows, you can also do a big crossover event - like... have the crew of my hypothetical Kelvin timeline spinoff TV show meet up with Anson Mount's Pike and Enterprise crew to thwart the Into Darkness Klingon/Disco Klingon alliance! (Yes, I know, that would violate canon! ) I just saying I think viewers are smarter than they're given credit for. I don't have any focus group data to prove it, but it's just a hunch. Anyway, that's it. Apologies in advance for this long post - I just needed to get this idea out there so I can move on with my life. May the Schwartz be with you.
