I have been reading the Star Trek: Destiny series, I am on Book 2 now. The way the Trek Universe looks post Nemesis it looks like that type of Trek series could be too expensive for TV. I see in this book series the have multi species crews and more high tech than the previous post TNG series. The Titan's Doctor was described as Dinasour like head. One of the Enterprise E's crew members has cybernetic implants in his head. I wonder how much a Trek series with that type of stuff would cost? I know they wouldn't do a Trek series based on these books. Would a post Nemesis Trek series have to maintain a 10 rating to stay on the air? Not to sound mean but wouldn't a post Nemesis Trek series only cater to the Trek fans and not the mainstream public?

Maybe if its a century after Nemesis like they did with TNG after the original? That might work. But no, not immediately after after the movie.

The books are good, but like said, too expensive for TV at this time. Its basically the same reason the Star Wars books, though superbly written(mostly) will never be movies.
A post Nemesis series would be cool, but impractical. However, also as said by someone else, perhaps a century sep'd like TNG or even in between, with Ent-B/C or Excelsior?

OK, i suppose i didn't consider CGI series when i said it would be impractical (I was refering to the cost of special effects, make-up, etc), after all, Star Wars got away with it(I think the series isn't half bad, in fact, its quite imaginative, though i don't think the first "episode" should've been a movie{On a side note- why did Jabba have a son when Hutts are asexual and change genders to reproduce?}). However, i don't think everyone would like an animated post-Nemesis series, though i would, provided it was well written. But who knows? Maybe Star Trek could pull a rabbit out of its hat yet again and get away with it!

Solve cost problem easily part just lot smell part next or two TOS movies were the future Spock could talking could help cut the cost show. For example having Kirk asking best way for beat the Borg to Future Spock and he explain him Vulcan mindmild or tell him effective tactics in time this call Post Nemesis show. He point out MACO force tactic high yard explosives and some other weapons destroy Borg Cube. Allow Kirk use similar tactic. IF save bridge set and engineer set starship and all equipment that used and costems. It be simple task of cut cost for Post Nemesis Star Trek when they deside to make it. You even have future hologram doctor in part Future Spock talks. I do not know if CBS is even liston say on this posts.

I feel we need to get away from just machines, endless violence and conflicts etc for their own sake. Too much of movie world is going that way, and even in Enterprise I noticed a big increase in punch-ups, bashing, guns and so on, relative to intelligent and well-considered interactions that explore important human themes as in the TNG, DSN and Voyager. Let's get visionary again - into real future prediction and leadership, let Star Trek become to our real 21st C world what the earlier series were to our real 20th C world. Let the writers and directors seek advice and updates from the scientific, ethical, environmental, and spiritual leaders of our times and create a new vision for the masses to consider. The original Star Trek had a powerful influence on 20th C technology, but also on social issues such as racism, sexism, etc. It heralded an era of equality, loyalty, respect and co-operation. Too many of us did not listen. In the state of our world now, here in the early days of the 21st C, how about a Trek series that predicts and paints a dynamic picture of the kind of future that will help solve our planet's real problems in the way Picard explained to many species in TNG? How about a Trek series that moves beyond our outdated 20th C philosophy, sociology, politics and violence-tech, and starts power-assisting real human evolution as responsible, souflul, mature citizens of the cosmos? Star Trek is such an influential icon of our times, and can be more so if it leads UP instead of sideways or down.
