As far as an Enterprise B series I think that actually might be the way to go. The odds are any new tv series will be set in the AU. No tv executives will pick up anything else after seeing the new movie numbers. As far as being set in our current Trek time frame I am not so sure it would work and here is why.

Would you really want to see a Farragaut series or something set on a space station or whatever else knowing Kirk and crew are out there exploring? Now the odds are they could not get these actors to all appear in the tv series anyway so this new JJprise on tv is most likely out.

As much as I could actually be satisfied enough with a Kelvin series we already know the fate of the Kelvin and George Kirk so that is out. Besides I don't think for an tv executives perspective they will even listen to a pitch for a Trek prequel in any styling.

Now since this is a new timeline and such we can easily say that Harriman's grandfather was killed on the Kelvin (Just an extreme example). Point is the Enterprise B or even A can be brought forth in this new timeline in almost any way. They could even take Vice's idea and go sometime in the 24th century with the Enterprise C and work within that time frame. I would hope in this new timeline they are not building Enterprise's every ten years or so. That would be a copout. Point is I don't think the next tv series should be carried by any other ship unless it is named Enterprise. I think they should get back to their roots and always keep Trek running off of ships named Enterprise.

Here is my simple list of wishes if someone somewhere is TRULY thinking of initiating a new Star Trek series....

I agree with the comments.  I'd go a tad further and add:

Don't be afraid to "South Park" the show.  No- that's doesn't mean a funny badly animated show; it means in South Park almost every week they kill Kenny and next week Kenny is back on the show.  Don't get hung up on what happend on previous shows, rather concentrate on this week's show being good, if that means that the so called previous canon (that has gone from simply script guidelines and devolved into minutia) gets trashed, don't worry about it.  Heck, if you think about it, using that model when central stars get in a tight jam, they might not make it out.  So, what, they will be around next week in an all new episode.  This isn't a soap opera, so don't treat it as one.  (Of course don't over do this, you could go from "He's dead, Jim" to "I am dead, Jim")

Put simply, yes it is.

Should we list all the times they have magically brought people back to life?

What killed ENT was bad stories coupled with story arcs that made it  impossible for a new viewer to watch a single episode and enjoy that one show.  It was a soap opera set in space.

SciFy has a lot more to concern themselves with than getting a new series. How many of the new series will they cancel because the ratings fail to garner more than three million viewers?

The way TV is set up now, only a fraction of good shows can possibly survive competing for the kinds of numbers networks think they OUGHT to get. The math just doesn't add up anymore, though. So good shows get cancelled.

...I also like the Captain Robau idea. That segment was my favorite part of the new movie.

I know if we do get a series it will more than likely be set in the new time line and I am fine with that. However, I really would have loved an Excelsior series with Capt. Sulu at the helm.

Just an opinion of mine on how they should approach a new TREK series:

There are three options:

1. Traditional TREK episode to episode adventure or DS9 type adventure story arc type series either will work fine neither is 100% original, yet they definately work well.

2. Outer Limits type format TREK ¿individual stories that are one-offs that can go just about any where and an episode can be revisited at a later date with out hurting the series by infringing on canon.

3. This is the most expensive version of the 3 formats I am suggesting ¿and would prove to be the most interesting in the long run. Have a given number of ships for example 3 ships with seperate crews that are in no way related yet are all part of a bigger story that doesn't involve story arcs.

For any of these to work the production team needs to be familiar with all types of TREK.

IMO number 3 would be the best and it could cater to more of the fan base than a traditional show would. :logical:

Yep I agree 100%  :logical:

No not exactly THAT bored. It's just more I think about this topic, the more I realize that my ideas are more viable than the others listed in this topic. I know I didn't go into great detail with my ideals yet I did address the topic of bringing a fresh new TV show to SyFy within the requested parameters .

"Syfy" and Star Trek should not come together EVER in any sort of way other than reruns.

Dance with the one that brought you.

Set the series in the early 25th century (2420) featuring the Enterprise - F. The ship would be based from a starbase orbiting New Bajor in the Gamma Quadrant. But the ship's mission would be to explore the farthest reaches of the Gamma Quadrant. :logical:

Would a post Nemesis just be for Trek fans only? Remember you need the general audience for a Trek Series to survive. A post Nemesis Series would seem to me to have alot of far out technobabble in it.

I don't think so. It's time to move forward and not back in the Prime Universe. But not yet. Give it a few more years.

very similar to my suggestion accept the enterprise-f would be exploring the large Maganellic cloud.

either idea would be good for me
