06Wahoo: For all the talk from people who hate that the new Trek films are nothing like what Gene Rodenberry wanted, a Section 31 series would be this times ten. Don't get me wrong, I think it was a great concept for a few episodes, but it is the very antithesis of the message Star Trek sent (peaceful Federation, above being uncivilized), and quite frankly, I think it would wear thin fairly quickly. Maybe some people want Star Trek to meld with The X-Files, but I'm not sure how well such a show would do.
DamnYankees: Can they bring ST back to TV already? Come on now.
TV's Vinnie: Brick-House:Ralph McQuarrie's original concept of the Enterprise refit. Much more impressive than the Andrew Probert version they decided on.:
TV's Vinnie: They did that. It was called "Dark Skies"
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: For my part, I would like to see any restart go back more closely to the original concept.Gene's idea was that this should be a story recapturing the same isolated, sovreign independence of a ship's captain as existed in the great days of sail, when the captain was on his own and communications with home were few and far between.
Bludyard: I can't remember if I read this idea here or if I made it up, but I think a new Trek show should be set on an all-Vulcan crew, in a Vulcan ship. And have completely ridiculous over the top things happen to them every week, which, being Vulcans, they react to in unemotional, stoic ways. In other words, a total deadpan comedy.
1000 Ways to Dye: Kirk NEVER said, "Beam me up, Scotty."NEVER.Stop saying he did.
FrancoFile: NutWrench: Star Trek Cat Fight! (sfw)One thing people forget is how awesome the incidental music in the original series was. That's a full orchestra - oboe, cello, french horn, etc.

Benevolent Misanthrope: HighOnCraic: The Borg Invasion in the non-canon books would be interesting. The Mirror Universe books are even cooler.No doubt, but can you really see any production studio today doing Trek well? The Borg Invasion would be done as a Walking Dead reboot, but with more electronics. The mirror universe stuff would be done up as soft core bdsm porn.
