As a hypothetical, let's say TNG is rebooted from the beginning. You get to undo/redo anything in the series, but the characters, names, and backgrounds are the same (you can change actors and how they do develop on the show). The objective is to make the humans less irritatingly arrogant about their 'evolved sensibilities,' Starfleet more like a real military/exploratory organization, and in general improve the atmosphere of the show so that it doesn't date itself. Which TNG Bridge would be used - season 1, 3, or Generations? Which uniforms would be used - season 1, 3, a mix of TNG/TOS, or something else? How long would officers take to get promoted, assuming they perform competently, and are interested in promotion? Would there be a certain number of slots for each rank? Like 2048 captain slots, so Riker passing on the Melbourne means that only after Wolf 359 would another open up. How would admirals act, such that they aren't there to cause conflict, but to act as real admirals would act in a military-style organization? How would the crew interact, senior staff amongst themselves, and senior staff to enlisted? I never served on a naval ship (I was on land), so I'm not sure how all that would've worked. For civilians, would you keep that as it was in TNG (and have saucer separation before each battle), or limit it to mission-specialist civilians and perhaps crews' immediate family and any diplomats/ambassadors the mission requires? As for the TNG crew, which roles would you recast, if you could keep the originals at their starting ages, but put anyone else there? Replace Wesley with Leslie? Gates McFadden with Michelle Specht from Star Trek Continues? Jonathan Frakes with David Boreanaz? I had the random idea for a full on reboot pop in my head, having watched some Star Trek Continues, and was wondering, how it could be handled to make it still TNG, but better and more real.
