Doesn't have to be that way.
One wonders how Andorrian and Denobulan mating rituals would have altered or opened human culture up to new ideas.
But not for long.
Good god no! That's not what Star Trek is about.
"Should" is a strong word for art, but I'd say: Why not? Some of the "soapy" DS9 episodes are favourites of me...
nope, I probably wouldn't care for it. Especially how Hollywood handles it these. I'd probably just quietly pass on the show. That's all I'll say on that matter.
Honestly I'd prefer an official star trek porn series to a Star Trek Romance series, way more fun.
Not sure if they'd go down that road since there are already UNofficial Trek porn movies out there... thus the idea wouldn't be new. I hear the TNG parody even has a decent plot, haha. (I'd' check to confirm this, but I'm not the target audience for it... )
Both sound forced and awkward.
I have no idea what a "romance" series is.
Star Trek: Decon Chamber
An excuse for more emo bullshit.
You're not supposed to post nude pics on here.
You do realize my post was tongue in cheek right?
My point stands. Neither are enjoyable; just forced and awkward.
I'm not opposed to the idea. I think people tend to imagine a CW-style Star Trek show but it wouldn't have to be quite like that. Regardless, I don't see the harm in wanting to try out different genres and expand Star Trek to different audiences.
A Star Trek romance.... I have the perfect title:
Star Trek-Crossed Lovers
Romance has been around a long time. "Emo bullshit" not so much.
Apothecary, your drugs aren't quick enough. I'm just going to die.
Ah, but those are one-offs and mixed with a surfeit of other genres within the same show. Something for everybody. Unless one dislikes the overarching theme; some might like individual DS9 episodes but hate it because it's overarching theme is "war stories'. Not "Wil and Deanna french kissing in direct front of camera for one minute in every x episode" just to hit it over the audiences' heads they swap bodily fluids, oh how special. But some people prefer the latter over the former.
I may not be keen on the idea of romance just as much as others don't like other elements of the show. The franchise is big enough, but will one show focused exclusively on just that bring in enough viewers to offset?
Yeah, I think something like Moonlighting, or more recently Bones would work. Both had for several seasons that "will they, won't they" thing going on, which is usually more fun for audiences than immediate coupling. I think Bones would be the better one to emulate, while amusing at times, it wasn't as much of a romantic comedy, which would probably be a better choice for a ST show.
I'm thinking a ship-based, exploring strange new worlds show, with one lead being the captain and the other a civilian scientist (to avoid any potential chain-of-command ickyness).
