I think a new star trek series would be perfect but I not sure I like the whole idea of the star trek from the 60's but I just want star trek back on the air within the next year or year and a half.

I'd like to see something based on the Mirror Universe - that would be awsome.

Take it around 20 years after the DS9 storylines, where the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance is falling apart, Regent Worf had been deposed , by a coups within his own cabinet and in hiding plotting his return, and the Humans and Vulcans are fighting to take back their place in the universe, and build a new Empire.

Or stay in this universe, just jump ahead a hundred years, and have some shakeups in the political structure, create a few new alien species and bad guys - bring in some new tech, new worlds to explore - etc.

I think there is a real problem in trying to do a new series. In all science fiction that is visual, i.e. TV, movies, I think there is always a tension between action, drama, and characterization. When I look back at some of my favorite episodes of any of the series, especially since I have seen many of them lots of times, I find that there is a scene or a small number of scenes that is what causes the show to be so great. Everything else seems to go around that. For instance, in The City on The Edge of Forever, for me, and I think for many, it is that scene at the end, where Edith is killed and Kirk is so torn that does it. It's like a good joke. Most jokes are based on misdirection. The build up gets you thinking in a certain way and then all of a sudden the punch line comes out of left field, and that is what causes the big laugh. It is the combination of all of the aspects of putting a show together, the writing, the acting, the directing, that creates those moments, and I think that they are the essence of the popularity of the show. In The Inner Light, that comes when he sees all the people who, for him, died years ago, and realizes that the entire experience has come full circle.

I'm a huge fan of Star Trek,I've just finished watching half a season of ST: Enterprise on DVD.(I watched maybe 3 eps when it was on TV but just couldn't get into it), so decided 5 years on to give it another try. Well let me tell ya - awful!! Boring storylines, excessive soap opera type story arcs, superficial crew that nobody would miss if they ended up with a warp core breach, tiresome alien races - the writers even managed to ruin the attraction/intrigue of the Vulcan race (turned them into tiresome old farts). And thats what Im afraid of seeing again! Lets be honest if Law and Order can make 20 seasons and have a franchise to boot, there's plenty of room for Trek to go where no one has gone before. Just not that rotten 7 season Ferengi/Klingon/Cardassion boarder/war idea thats floating about. OMG - are they determined to ensure Paramount cancels all future plans to make ST?? That will DEFINATELY be a nail in ST's coffin.

The OS remains an icon. TNG broke a lot of new ground and did it very well indeed. DS9 had the most complex story line and was the best of the spinoffs in my opinion. Voyager was great until the final epidsodes and the space-time mumbo jumbo. I think that is what killed Enterprise. Paramount found a successful way to apply the space-time alternate reality shtick in ST2009. Dazzle 'em with flash, young attractive actors, lightening-like pacing and no one will even notice the lack of substance. Wipe out the boring, old fart, ST history to level the playing field and attract a new fan base to ensure the survival of the franchise.(Those baby boomers are now starting to die off anyway.) I'm afraid another TV series will merely follow in the current movie's footsteps. If only there could be a production with the quality of "The City On The Edge Of Forever." Then we would really have something.

Hey Pup - some of us baby Boomers have a good 40 years left on us - and it was WE that kept that franchise going during the dry years. Despite Berman's crap.

Show a little respect

Would J.J. Abrams make more money from a television series or from movies?

I wasn't all that impressed with Voyager and Enterprise. They were like leftovers. Sure they were a good meal but... eh...

Voyager became heavy-laden with discussing issues and excessively mundane crew interests.

Enterprise was good at following a proven formula, but there you go.. following not leading or groundbreaking. There were cannon storyline inconsistancies.

In the 60's stories were sharp and effects were dull. In the 00's it seems effects are sharp and the stories are dull.

it would be cool if they made a star trek tv series set at the starfleet academy. they never have really explored that part in any series and yet they always talk about how their training has put them where they are.

Let's see something like the old "police story" shows. Every episode a different ship,different crew, different time even different races. No silly Xindii style season long mind numbing cliffhangers again

I really enjoyed the new movie and I would love to see a series made with these new actors. But I also agree with an earlier poster that it would be awesome to have a series set around Starfleet. They havent explored that area at all and there is so0o0 much potential there, its almost silly they havent done it already.

I grew up watching captain kirk, spock, bones, scotty and all the best. I don't know how they can top the actors, but I know with all the special effects they have today, they can make star trek very interesting!!!!!!!!
Number one star trek fan. Got all the tv shows and the movies!! So i'm either a fan or a freak, probably a little of both!!!

Though the idea about focusing on the academy worked for a brief time in the latest movie I don't believe it would do so hot as a whole series. Worries of it becoming too "91210ish" come to mind. The show has always been about how we explore ourselves or our differences by exploring the universe around us together. I think you can't have a star trek without the exploration of the unknown genre in it. Remember the last time we explored life at the academy? Wesley wondering if e should tell the truth, peer pressure? Too many "91210 no" parallels

I would love to see a new series set in the time just after Janeway gets back only take up a story about a remote star base and a scout ship near to the Beta Quadrant the scout ship goes on 6 month survey missions that way you could have a cast at the remote star base and have a small cast on the survey ship.

but the station must be unlike DS9 perhaps on a planet with lots of old ruins.

I would like to see this crew from the new StarTrek have a TV series. They all seem to work well together, and Spock Prime could appear from time to time to give advice, and chat with his father who is now younger than himself!

Bring it on, and stop talkin' about it - light this candle !
