Yah. Don't care. We need a 'Kirk' in SNW who signals James T. Kirk. Wesley ain't that guy- sorry.
They can't afford Christopher Pine, period.
He's too expensive, so unless Christopher Pine is willing to take a serious pay cut, it ain't happening.
Vampire Diaries was huge.
Paul even as the way less sexier brother, can pull some of that audience, who buys key chains and novelty monopoly sets, over to this side of the fandom.
I’ve never heard of Vampire Diaries.
They're kept in the Vampire Nightstand.
Although a first-rate series, I believe "Deep Space Nine" is overrated and had failed to reach its potential of being the best Trek show. I barely like Season Six and disliked most of Season Seven. Instead, I would rate it just as good or bad as "Next Generation" and "Voyager". I also believe "Strange New Worlds" is basically a rehash of both "The Original Series" and to a certain degree, "Next Generation", but with a different lead. This is something I do not like.
I'm just going off of EAS: https://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/database/series-titles.htm#:~:text=SHO,for Short Treks. and https://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/...tion the site will go with that acronym.,-PRO
If they wanted to bring in Pine to play Kirk they probably could afford him, the budgets on the nu-Trek shows seems pretty big. It just might mean they have to do one or two eps that aren’t as VFX heavy with simple stories. Like every one of the “classic Trek” series had to do from time to time.
you just don’t know what his asking price would be.
Pine has done American Dad "recently".
He has a relationship with Seth.
We might see him on the Orville before we see him on Strange New Worlds.
I am a huge Deep Space 9 fan, but I don't like season seven at all. The Dominion War for the most part was brilliantly written, but its ending was a mess of convenient coincidences because The Good Guys Had To Win™. Also – I cannot stand Ezri Dax.
TOS 5ym era nostalgia does next to nothing for me, but movies/tng yes
I like Ezri (but am firmly in Team Jadzia) but I think she is one of the reasons S7 sputters a bit. They spent too much time and effort into “getting to know” her.
They should have worked out a deal to keep Jadzia alive. Or still kill her off but promote Nog or Kassidy to series regular. Introducing a new character that was supposed to be a series regular that close to the finish line was a mistake.
Been catching up with Season 3 of The Orville and honestly I think sometimes that show is better at being TNG than TNG ever was.
1. The Cardassians took DS9 for months, and Sisko is bleeding out in an alley behind his dads restaurant. That's what life is, a series of down endings.
2. Dax makes me feel funny, like when I used to climb the rope in gym class.
I like Ezri fine. I don’t like the season one like ‘getting to know you’ episodes in the middle of the final season though.
I have always liked TOS, but I have never loved it. And I only loved one particular TOS movie and one TNG movie.
I would trade all of TNG for a post Voyage Home version of Phase II on the "A", and Pulaski should absolutely be a relative of McCoy's. I would keep Riker, Troi, Pulaski, Data, Geordi, and Worf. Shatner in command. Uhura and Chekov made starring characters. McCoy and Spock making guest appearances (questionable on if Doohan could have done a couple years before Geordi takes over). Sulu written out as getting his own ship, because, well, screw Takei
Worf and Data would be interesting. Worf because of being a KIingon in Starfleet in the 23rd Century (there's a story!), and Data because Kirk spent a lot of episodes in TOS outsmarting computers and androids.
Seems a little problematic, though....wasn't Riker, Troi, etc. born well after the point this would be set in (late 23rd century)?
