Trekkers Only! : New ST TV-Show?

New ST TV-Show?

I think the reboot of star trek killed it. I certainly lost interest when these movies came out.

I still enjoy TNG - wish they could do a spin off of that!

What if we followed Piccards rise to Captain? or more from the delta quadrant? i thought it was pretty cool over there.

I would love to start writing an episode - perhaps I'll do that and go to hollywood with it.

Welcome to the jungle then I guess.

What do you guys think - what would you like to see in a new star trek tv series?

Definitly nothing from Abrams! I think the new Series starring the Enterprise ´C´? Well despite there are a lot fans of TOS and TNG they hope to find a new generation of fans and the majority don´t want to see what we hope to see. I gave the 11th ST Movie, the first Abrams one a try. After nearly 1 hour I quit. This has absolutely nothing to do with our Star Trek. I like to watch Star Trek continous on youtube, hope someone starts a TNG-Continues someday.

Spock, the women on Vulcan are logical. it's the only planet in this galaxy that can make that claim

Re: New ST TV-Show?

I'm not sure why they made the recent three movies. I mean, I do, but it's like they could have gotten their points across without re-vamping the classic series with a bunch of actors playing caricatures of the crew a lot of use grew up with. They were corny, silly (moreso than 1960s Trek), and just plain over the top in all departments.

The idea behind those films is for our tech and science types to examine their efforts in the "war on terrorism", and not to get carried away by being on a war footing.

But in order to do that they really trashed the show upon which the films were based by making these films.

But, some people like them. Those same people like the Transformer movies too, and a lot of other junk that's hitting the screens today.

Or, in the words of Captain Kirk in "The Trouble with Tribbles"; "Well, there's no accounting for taste."

TNG was another misstep, but I've already beat that horse.

Well the TOS crew is too old/dead, TNG, DS9, and VOY people are too "expensive"
for Paramount's taste, and Enterprise was killed just as they started to get it right because Paramount was dumping UPN and wanted to hold on to their cash-cow.
So the only other alternative would be to re-boot or use one of the non mainstream book series, like New Frontiers, Star Fleet Corps of Engineers, ECT.
So what they did was reboot TOS, but to make money, turned it into a Michael Bey boom fest.




Re: New ST TV-Show?

To me it's like these people have no regards for our feelings and sense of worth of the tales they tell. And because the people who produce the shows and movies think of these things as merely tools to promote a kind of psychological inspiration and make money, to them they're just products.

No one wants to make a religion out of an old scifi TV show, but it's like at the same time no one wants to see it bastardized.

It's like what if some of the classics were turned on their heads. What if someone wrote a modern day sequel to the Red Badge of Courage that had Japanese Mechas fighting in Desert 2 against ISIS monsters or something. Or writing a sequel to Dickens' "A Christmas Carole" and showing how Scrooges descendants have to fight off an alien invasion. And I wouldn't be surprised if someone had written that already, or was writing it.

I think at some point you have to put something down, stop beating it, stop reworking it, and let it stand on its own two feet for the rest of time.

The guys who played the male leads were so over the top ... I just wonder who really thought these were good performances, and what self respecting classic Trek fan thought these were good films, or made in the spirit of Shatner, Nimoy, Doohan, Kelly and everyone else.

I think the other reason these films were made they way they were was to show how "crazy" war is. But you know, sometimes you have to fight for what's right and what's yours. And I guess Hollywood just doesn't get that.
