I think spinning off Picard is the best option because we can get a follow up to DS9 era Trek
Given the cast and many wanting jeri back on TV I say so.
Yeah and I want to see what happened to all the species affected by the dominion war. Much as I like how ENT and later Treks expanded on Andorians and Tellarites, I wanna see the 90s aliens come back. They've been neglected for too long
Not just the species involved…did any of the Maquis crew on Voyager ever try to get revenge on the Dominion, or the Cardassian for their friends and family being wiped out by them? Did the remaining Equinox crew join in, as they likely lost friend in the Dominion War too?
There are lots of interesting questions to answer.
Yeah, and maybe the Federation isn't viewed in as positive of a light anymore
Back to the 24th century.
So much to explore there.
That was the wish back in the day when trek ended with Enterprise was to get both Patrick Stewart and Jeri Ryan back in Trek which they did.
My thoughts exactly.
Where should Trek go? Fresno. California's year-round playground.
I already got what I wanted, so it can go wherever.
A show focused exclusively on combat just to piss off the gatekeepers.
Back to the 22nd Century. The Romulan War! The Birth of the Federation! It's brimming with story potential.
The Academy. Where I've wanted it to go since the 90's.
My personal ideal would be keep SNW as the "base" series - but expand the 24th Century with Legacy as a series and keep LD and Prodigy. Ditch Academy to save money if needed. Thats my personal ideal in the present situation (though I am happy to be convinced by Academy).
What I think will actually happen is that SNW will stay for 4-5 seasons - but I have a feeling with the strikes and cost-savings the episode count might drop and we will end up with a miniseries/mini-season to wrap it up. LD will stick around to finish up it's run at about 5 seasons depending on how much it costs, and S2 of Prodigy is all we will get (airing... somewhere...).
I then expect formats different to the current weekly series ones will move in - mini-series', and one-off movies. I have a feeling that Legacy is gonna end up as a TV movie somewhere in the chain after S31 (if S31 actually happens). Once SNW ends - I really hope another weekly live-action series takes its place, but I'm feeling pessimistic. Having one ongoing weekly live action series and then one-off movies/mini series sort of dotted around it plus animation wouldn't be so bad.
I hope for a mix of episodic and serialized for the next live action show
Legacy might become a tv movie. But as a series, how this for a format?
- 8 episodes per season. Down from 10 episodes, but each episode is a full 60 minutes. Like its being aired on Apple TV+.
- 4 two-parters per season. Meaning planet-of-the-week, threat-of-the-week, romance-of-the-week etc, stories will be resolved in two episodes instead of one episode. Which might create some worthy tv movies in the process.
- Maybe rated R, to capture the vibe of DIS S1 and PIC S1.
I think it's doable although I'd prefer 10 episodes
No R rating. Legacy is about not offending TNG sensibilities.
I don't think they need to be r rated but also not be necessarily restricted to broadcast censorship
