Star Fleet Academy by the way of HBO or Showtime, Not CW, would be okay

God no. This idea keeps coming up and it would suck massively. Besides, DS9 already had sort of the same concept, and then they give it a starship because hanging out on a base got limiting.

Re: Bryan Singer and Fuller developing new Star Trek series?

Honestly, when they do finally make another Trek series, I don't give a fuck what the setting is as long as it's a good show.

WHich is a reason many liked DS9, because it was much more 'serialized' than the 'explorer' 'alien race of the week episodes'.

At least for me

Serialization has nothing to do with the setting. It's a writing choice.

I watched it's entire run but never thought it worked. Didn't like the actor choices..And to me the Xindi season was a waste, so many great storylines they could have had and they shelved it for that.

In my opinion though if a new series is made they should go the shorter season route and have around twelve or so episodes in a season rather than a full twenty plus episode season. That way they could cut a lot of the fluff episodes and keep a solid story going.
Agree, short seasons on say, SyFy.. Riker show or the idea I've thought of is set it a few decades or so after TNG/DS9 with a serialized show following a warship as they are in a serious war with the Romulans or someone, with things not looking too good for the Federation.

You really should give it another shot. DS9 is the best Trek show.

I agree. The first 1-2 seasons were kind of a mess, but once the Dominion comes into play, it really is great.

Yeah but if they did SF Academy I just *know* it'd wind up like a CW show...likely on the CW with JJ exec producing it.

Wow...yeah it really was. I liked TOS and Enterprise and found Voyager fine with *really* liking TNG but almost every day I wish they were still making DS9. Along side M*A*S*H* it's my fav TV show of all time - not even Star Trek

+1 I'd say that, if you're just catching it casually on TV, any episode where Sisko's head is shaved is a good place to start.

Yeah, let's put them on another ship and send them out to encounter the Borg again.

They need to mix this stuff up.

They don't have to ever use the Borg again.

It's a writing choice. But I'm sure the nerds will clamour for them anyhow.

I *really* suspect Avery Brooks got more creative control which resulted in Sisko's head shaving. Over on the Trek boards they're all saying that Brooks may not have been intoxicated when he was arrested for that DUI since he acts kinda crazy all the time.

This I agree with and suspect it's that fine line between genius and madness that he injected into DS9 which made it so great.

As an aside on the homepage of Trekweb they have a poll up for what they want JJ to premiere at ComicCon related to Star Trek.

The first choice was a trailer for a new movie but a *very* close second was announcing a DS9 movie. Of course I voted for the movie and if any other fans wanted to do the same hopefully it'll prove to Paramount that they shouldn't be done with DS9 yet.

I've recently been Netflixing DS9. There was no chance I was going to watch the whole thing so I just Googled "must watch episodes" and I'm really enjoying watching just the main story line episodes.

I know I'll get to it eventually. On Netflix now so will be easy. Another show I need to go back to is The Wire. I watched the first two seasons then just didn't have time to start right up on the third, then was long enough that I would need to start over to remember what was going on. Sigh. I don't think I'll mind starting that one back from the start though.

Ugh... stay far away from TNG. That show started strong and became the worst sanctimonious crap on television and on the movie screen ever. And Riker was the very freakin' worst!!!

If you were to do this, it would have to be a show set at least 100 years after TNG, with no Starfleet and no prime directive.

Don't get your hopes up. He didn't show ANYTHING at the Comic-Con before the first movie opened.

I agree - but it was good to see that there's still a strong support base out there for DS9...hopefully one day Paramount will realize they should capitalize on that.

I'm not expecting much of JJ either...for anything really.

A new Star Trek TV series??

http://www.trektoday.com/content/201...k-on-tv-again/

Quote:
According to Sky News Entertainment Reporter Joe Michalczuk, there is ongoing discussion regarding the possibility of getting Star Trek back on TV again.

The information comes courtesy of Star Trek into Darkness Co-writer Roberto Orci.

“Bob Orci just told me they’ve had a meeting with CBS to revive @StarTrek on TV,” said Michalczuk. “This made me v[ery] excited.”
So if they did decide to revive Star Trek. What would people want to see? Exploration vessel? (7 year voyage etc etc). Space station drama? (DS9). Star fleet academy? New Trek Colony?

What time period? After Enterprise? Before TNG? After DS9?

Re: A new Star Trek TV series??

At this point they've done so many variations on ships and crews flying around space that I'd rather see something like "Starfleet Academy" or "Redshirts". Basically what everyone else is doing while the 3-4 main casts are off fighting the Borg and dealing with Q.

Also, after DS9 for a time period. No more mucking around with trying to make it fit into the chronology.

How about Kirk-era, but taking place on a Klingon ship.
