    A lot of canon sucks and should be ignored.

    That's true, but I personally think TAS has a lower dud rate than TOS.

    Nah, it had like one and a half non-duds.

    Plus, it never aimed nearly as high.

    So let me see if I've got this straight: A bunch of runaway teens find an old abandoned Starfleet vessel, fix it up and go joyriding on adventures throughout the galaxy. Time setting not given, but likely post-Federation since Starfleet'd be in hot pursuit of them otherwise. Ship has to be big enough to handle most anything thrown at it, yet small enough for maybe a half-dozen kids to fly and comfortably live in it. So smaller than an Excelsior, bigger than a runabout, and capable of automation...

    Oh hell.

    They're going to be flying the Enterprise-A, aren't they? Just like those kids in the Ghostbusters Afterlife trailer with the Ecto-1. It'll be floating in the long-forgotten Starfleet Museum, keys in the figurative ignition...

    Isn't that the plot of "The Way To Eden"? ;)

    No, they commandeered a fully crewed and operational front line Federation Starship. That's infinitely worse:lol:

    What about "Star Trek: Valiant - The Series (but done a little better)"

    Actually, I would love that. It would finally explain the fate of the Enterprise-A, since we know nothing about what happened to it after TUC other than that it had been decommissioned.

    If "The Slaver Weapon" had ended that way, it would have been incredibly lame, and thereby dumbing things down for a supposedly kid-friendly ending complete with an implicit moral would have unambiguously represented an instance of a trope "typical of kids' cartoons at the time." Not to mention, it would have been totally implausible for Spock and his party to risk the entire Federation by in effect handing the Kzinti the total conversion weapon on a proverbial silver platter, in the hopes that they would then do "the right thing" by returning the favor of sparing their lives.

    You're making a lot of assumptions there, not least that a peaceful resolution would inevitably hand the Kzinti the weapon. There are many ways it could have ended without the deaths, that would fit in more with the tone of the rest of the series, as, to my recollection, they weren't completely immune to reason, completely unwilling to listen. It could even be an uneasy resolution, a tentative truce, no more than hopeful, positive possibilities.

    Personally, one of the things I like so much about TAS is that it could come up with good peaceful resolutions, ones that were earned, rather than tacked on just because. If anything, TOS was more guitly of tonally awkward 'happy' endings, the infamous 'tease the Vulcan after lots of people have died horribly' conclusions. Heck, even TNG did it with First Contact.

    TAS captured, particularly well, the things I personally loved about Trek, things I believe are lacking in the current TV incarnation, and if the Nick show can recapture some of that, I for one will be content.

    What about a post-Calypso Discovery? I know that's probably going to be ignored in season 3 and was setting up an earlier plan for getting the crew into the future, but if we still accept it as something yet to come then it's always a possibility.

    It was Christopher's assumption that the weapon was in the possession of the Kzinti at that point in the story.

    Not necessarily. There are probably a bunch of semi-functional derelicts out there that Starfleet forgot about. Then there's also the Qualor II surplus depot, which looked like they had a bunch of potentially functional ships that hadn't had all the good bits taken out of them yet. Dominion War & Wolf 359 graveyards may also have a few functional vessels which are untouched, likely due to "memorial" status.

    FFS, I hope not...
