I would rather bring back Data if they want to bring back a TNG character, Worf was unwelcome in my book on DS9.  :patel

Worf and his High Council discommendation thread that ran throughout s3 (and s4?) were groundbreaking. It was so awesome to see something like continuity appearing in the series. I happened to catch a few more episodes of that while in the USA and was enrapt.

Wouldn't want to see Data without Brent Spiner, and he's too old at this point to still do a proper Data, unfortunately. Maybe in a very minor role or cameo.

They are not going to make a Worf Chronicles TV show. It's way too inside baseball at this point. But any attention being drawn to the idea of a Star Trek TV show, the better.

It's probably down to some studio bullshit between Paramount and CBS contracts in terms of the ongoing jj abrams' movie series versus detracting or otherwise limiting what can be done with new TV material.

I can't take John DeLancie seriously since he did that MLP documentary.

Oh, man. Watching DS9, I had forgotten that I cannot stand the character interaction between Miles and Keiko. Good grief, what a dysfunctional couple. As much as TNG was all about yuppies in space pursuing their careers at the cost of personal relationships, DS9 shows the logical outcome of that philosophy by having a couple who are always at odds because of their professional pursuits.

:yuck

Why does the only married couple on the series have to be broken?

"Hey, let's be passive aggressive about fucking EVERYTHING."

"Hey, let's get angry at Miles about shit he can't control because I can't deal with my own emotions."

"Hey, even when you present reasonable courses of action, I'll just stay here to opt into shit that will make me miserable still. Because reasons."

Even so, just looking at Terry Ferrell makes most of the Miles and Keiko damage fall away. Damn, she is a beautiful woman. I was crushing hard from the first time I saw her, in that miserable Hellraiser movie where one Cenobite shot out compact discs.

I would not bet the deal is that sweet. In truth I suspect the thing is that the movies can make a lot more money and much faster. At least it does now. It will always be time to pitch a TV show when the drought will come in.

Plus it will be hard to make a multiseason show that appeals to the fans and the 18-35 group (the series did start like 50 years ago).

Hell tons of young dudes bitch about Janeway not cutting it when she had the biggest balls of any captain. It's easier to just make a movie that focuses on the adventures rather than the whole cultural exploration bit.

I was the opposite. I didn't really like her but I adored the cute little chick that replaced her.

good fucking god Kes what happened



http://www.tmz.com/2015/09/15/star-trek-voyager-actress-jennifer-lien-arrested-exposing-herself-kids-mug-shot/
Quote
"Star Trek: Voyager" actress Jennifer Lien is behind bars after cops arrested her for allegedly exposing herself to 3 kids under 13.

We've learned 2 weeks ago Lien was at her Tennessee home when she got in an argument with her neighbor outside her house. She was angry that a small child was crying over a cut foot. 

Lien allegedly exposed her breasts and rear end to the 3 neighbor kids. Cops took a report and Lien denied exposing herself. But they didn't believe her and got a warrant for her arrest.

When cops went to Lien's house to arrest her she didn't go down without a fight. Cops say she refused to put clothes on, was carried to the police car and threatened to have them shot and killed.

EDIT: This must be insane Kes from the future:
Quote
In July 2012, Lien was arrested in Tennessee for domestic assault.

In April 2015, Lien was arrested in Harriman, Tennessee, and charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault

Kurtzman is currently an executive producer on Sleepy Hollow, Scorpion and Limitless. I like the last one, which he has no other credits on.

He and Heather Kadin seem to be executive producers together on a lot of stuff just to get it made for a friend/etc.

Scorpion has ten executive producers...of which one is the "developed by"/showrunner and another is Justin Lin of four Fast and Furious films and Star Trek: Beyond and who directed the pilot.

Now, I'm wondering what show has the most executive producers. CSI: Cyber has a decent amount:

Co-Executives
Richard Catalani
Craig S. O'Neill

It doesn't need to be dark or sexy at all for that kind of audience. Firefly and Dr. Who are really popular despite the other zombie/prison/medieval examples that article talks about. I think the main reason people watch these shows is for the self contained plots in each episode although having to wait 23 episodes to go through the main story arc of the season would be a legitimate gripe nowadays.

There are multiple ways you can take a modern reboot. Yes, I doubt making something exactly like Next Generation for a modern audience would be a good idea but that doesn't exactly mean you have to go insanely dark. Although there does have to be tension in whatever form that takes and an ongoing over-arching plot line.

Like the others, it looks like it could be a fine popcorn movie that completely missed the point of what traditionally Star Trek is about. 

This whole movie reboot of Trek was doomed after the very first one which set the tone of what New Trek was about.

Looks pretty good.

Justin Lin stan for life.

People forget that movie Trek and tv Trek ARE NOT THE SAME THING. Movie Trek has always been blockbuster shit. The problem with the last two Trek films is that they're just not that GOOD. And in the case of In Darkness, pretty fucking bad.

But I trust Lin.

The better movie treks were still not action films. If you go back and watch The Wrath of Khan now, its like the slowest movie ever. Good traditional trek movies, while not exactly like the TV show are not action films. There is action in them but they don't drive the movie.

Which is not to say this can't be an enjoyable film. It's just frustrating that it looks like another straight up action movie.

Movie Trek has always been Blockbuster shit.

Except that one about aging and letting go.

That one about arguing against that.

That one that is a parallel for the Fall of the Soviet Union and a mans hatred.

That one that is a huge Moby Dick Homage.

and so on.

Star Trek movies, even TNG ones explored human condition themes just as much as the tv shows did, just on a grander scale. Thats something the Abram's movies missed completely.

I always thought Star Trek IV was an outlier. The TNG movies were pretty Blockbuster, but I haven't seen them since I was a kid. That one with Kirk and Picard in the same movie is the exact thing I'm talking about.

And people don't like Generations. Yet, even that uses the Nexus as an exploration for someone trapped in the past. Thats the thing, Star Trek has always used sci-fi to explore human themes in it's storytelling.

I can't even tell wtf the Abrams movies were about.

The best three Trek films are Wrath of Khan, The Undiscovered Country, & The Voyage Home

Think about how different all those films are tonally from each other and such.

I wish they were inspired by those movies instead of just generic action shlock

Star Trek is naval films set in space. It's not about one character punching another character. Or if it is that is just one small part of it.

Star Trek movies should be more like Crimson Tide if they want to embrace a direction. No like actioned up versions of the old stuff just for the sake of action.
