What does that have to do,with anything. I doubt anyone would say live long and prosper to you,given you are so rude.

Any show,on the air now ,has nutty fans . So what .
Any new show on now,sucks,compared to any star trek show.
Crap like secret circle,raising hope,nikita ? X factor ,dancing with the stars ,glee ?

How many damn reality shows......must we endure ...?

Real tv shows, have been destroyed by idiot network execs ,pandering to morons who think big brother and the voice,are kewl .
Lucille Ball put Star Trek on the air .......and its too bad she isn't around now,to do something ground breaking,instead of the same old slop .


So,if people who like star trek ,want to be happy a new star trek series might be in the wings,that doesn't mean we are all out of our mind trekkies,with Spock bedsheets ,and tricorder tooth brushes .
You don't like star trek ,well then go talk on another thread .

We heartily apologise for offending you lame aesthetic senses with our mindless drivel *rolls eyes*

I like Star Trek.  It's among the best written science fiction, relying on characters and plot to develop the story rather than only special effects as many other do.
What William Shatner is doing here is called comedy.
Sorry to offend.

Live long and proper.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

DS9 was great!
It was 'Enterprise' that really sucked the big one!

"Enterprise" started to actually get pretty good in season 3... It tried to do some cool stuff with it's entire season long story arc. The problem was that it could never quite repair the basic damage done to it by it's first two seasons.

And, of course, the damage done to the show every episode by way of it's grotesque pop song...

Worf is working on a Worf Star Trek? I wonder what the time frame will be and if we see any familiar faces.

I thought it was going to be Star Trek Federation. - LINK


Quote

In his statement, Fuller said:
Bryan and I are big fans of Trek and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it. I don't think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I’m sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams’ purview of what happens. He's the guardian of Trek right now.

While that may be somewhat disheartening news for fans eager to have Trek back on the small screen, despite Fuller's hesitance, common sense suggests that Paramount and Abrams certainly see the potential in a new series, provided it's done right, of course. Given Abrams penchant for producing hit television, especially within the sci-fi realm - and Fuller's past credits on Star Trek: Voyager,along with Pushing Daisies and Heroes, the idea of a Fuller/Singer collaboration with the support of J.J. Abrams sounds like a sure-fire hit.
The question remains, however, whether this proposed Star Trek series would be based directly on the lore established in Abrams’ films, or if it will take its cue from Bryan Singer’s unproduced Star Trek: Federation series?

Worf has all the charm and personality of a dog turd.

Here's hoping this series only exists in the delusional mind of an unemployed and desperate Michael Dorn, because its as stupid an idea as basing a Cheers spinoff around the character of Cliff.

Odo is the logical 'Frasier' of the DS9 universe and should have had his own show a decade ago.

Some Problems with every ST series and flick so far:

Personal weapons don't recognize potential targets. A modern Isreali coldwar gun does. Won't fire if it's going to miss the perp.

A weapon should recognize forms, dividing them two ways: what space the form occupies, and the inversion of the space it doesn't occupy ("ecerything but" the form, in the event there is interference with the form-scan). It should also recognize individual people of any "race" (once seen) so it can follow them through any mixup of bodies, and recognize all known animals and their communication displays.

Computer is actually dumber than conscious thought. People steal shuttles, beam themselves places, shields don't activate unless some lethargic moron says so to the next moron, weapons don't fire at most vulnerable available points of known craft, and away teams can't count of computer interaction.

Even if away teams had interaction, Computer has no Behavioral Science installed! Everybody lies without getting challenged. (Tough on the script-writer, of course, to write a script not based on people deceiving people. Where do the obstacles come from then? No obstacles, no plot. But, come on guys! It's very future fiction!)

Textiles are not "aware". They don't see, or hear, or detect chemicals, or even know what's going on in the bodies they are covering. These are also things we can do already! ---though not very elegantly. Textiles should be linked to ship AI. The ship should always know far more than any person, and react faster in specified perview: always make AI more independent, like a child.

Let's face it: ST is virtually the gold-rush. Six-shooters would serve approximately as well.

Human beings are never invaders in the stories, except as they can learn and repair the damage. They can slip up and fix it. They are never under-evolved for an encounter.

STOS had one incidence, poorly staged, where "higher beings" took human form just to interact with Kirk and Spock, who disgusted them by resorting to violence.

But actors can't do "higher beings" or act disgusted except as dissembling deepseated guilt.

And we have the imp, Q, who clearly is not a higher being; just all-powerful.

It's never a mistake, in the stories, to force our habitual improprieties on the vast expanse beyond our cringing globe.

To go where no man has been invited. The choose the neighbor's orchard because he has strange fruit. As if distancing Sol from other stars were an accident rather than a precaution.

It isn't understood, by the usual psychologists, that there is in fact another traumatic amnesia and stroke, besides the familiar shock of violence: the trauma of an encounter requiring far more evolution from us than we can muster. Beauty-trauma!

Man encountering higher evolution would probably not make it back home. His ship would become an asylum without a doctor. Only the AI would know where it was and where it might go for help, if no one decided to "improve it" as schizophrenics are so inclined to do. "Computer! Zero is not a number! Delete all zeros!"

Credulousness is when the process of being made more useful to duplicitous exploiters leaves us presuming to have become superior. Something is growing that is killing the mind; thereby orphaning the children in one's very care.
Learning, if not credulous, is always growing. Teaching is always degenerating. Glibness is a vice in either case, the former because one will wish one had said more, and the latter because one will admire one's rubbish unto death.

They'd been saying the next Trek was going to focus on the Klingon empire. This could be taken as either confirmation or denial.

For the record, I agree with Becky's Mom. DS9 was nowhere near Enterprises level of stupid but it was always too much like a soap opera for my taste.

I admit I'm an Enterprise fan. But it took some time to go from hate to like. I liked the action.

I dreaded the sermons from the arrogant Jean Luc and the orgasmic "readings" from Troi. (Watch episode one? I think).

But I would still rather watch TNG over most any other non science fiction offering on TV.

Worf? Sounds like it won't lack action!

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I have to agree there, but he's a wonderful foil for other characters.

Dorn's been working steadily as a voice actor, so I'd think it was more a case of Dorn (like Nathan Fillion and his dreams of doing more Firefly) seeing if he can leverage his interest and passion into playing a character he loved again.

I did not watch the entire series at the time, but I did enjoy the expansion of the Ferengis with Quark, Rom and Nog on the station.  Before DS9, the Ferengis were really limited in terms of a race in the Star Trek universe.

As a nerdy high school kid in the 90s who worshipped TNG, I am very excited about the possibility of a new ST show featuring Worf. Bring it on, I say!

Ensign Kim, Computer requests 37 seconds of your time.
“Granted.”
There was an uncharacteristic hesitation in your entry of that familiar code. Please reflect on the associated distraction under the label personal;
Thank you. Under the label, ship’s security;
Thank you. Under the label ship’s performance.
Thank you. I conclude that your need for rest outweighs all other considerations. Thank you for your time, ensign Kim.
“No problem, Computer.”
