I would love there to be a new Star Trek series! Since the cancellation of Enterprise in 2005 there hasn't been much to watch in the Sci-Fi world for me. I loved the latest Star Trek movie but I'd like there to be a series on-the-go as well.


 


Some ideas...


Set after the latest in the franchise (maybe in the early to mid 25th century) on the Enterprise F or based on another type of ship.


Would anyone like to share some ideas?

I have an idea for a show. I would call it Star Trek: Alpha Quadrant. It would be set in the 25th century & follow the timeline of the tv series. The United Federation of Planets has been defeated by The Coalition (A combined force of The Klingon Empire, Romulans & a new race called the Djrini - prenounced Dee-jar-rin). Earth, Vulcan, Bajor & many other Federation planets are now under occupation. The series would focus on the Federations response as they regroup to bring many world back together to restore the United Federation of Planets. It would be set abord a new Enterprise (no ship has carried the name for over 25 years) but the ship would also return home to the Federations new base of operations so we would see the crew in their new home life & deal with the effects of the war. The Enterprise would have no families on board, no fancy quarters just crew quarters like on Star Trek: Enterprise, no holodeck, no 10 forward just a mess hall. It would have a cloaking device. Even though they are at war it would also be character driven. This is what the crew would be:


 


Captain Thomas Ryan - Human - Son of a respected Admiral


 


Comander Zarah Akelia - Trill - 1st Officer/Science - 6th host of Akelia - She is Thomas's childhood friend


 


Commander Sian O'Malley - Human - Chief Engineer - Her husband is a prisoner of war


 


Lt Tayia Cerys - Bajorian - Helm - Single mother


 


Ensign Rahid Samiee - Human - Communications - Parents disapprove of him joining Starfleet


 


Ensign Joesph Ross - Human - Engineering - Fresh from academy, trying to find his way


 


Major Jaylic - Djrini - Tactical/Security - Joins the crew as he is against his people joining the Coalition


 


Dr Jermaine Okachi - Human - Chief Medical - Former starfleet officer, he is now a civilain doctor


 


Some may say it's not very Star Trek but it is different & I think it would work.

Hmmm, after Voyager was ropped I had this idea for a series call Star Trek (Adventures) or simply just Star Trek (not to be confused with theoriginal series mind, it wasn't a series as such bur something that came on now and again as special two-parters, using (or recreating) stuff from the other series and films (occasionly from other sci-fi shows, talk about recycling eh) of props and modles never used before that already existed etc was well as some new stuff , the Idea was basicly have (seemingly) random stories set on various ships and bases ect. within the Star Trek universe seen from different poins of view and various eras, the pilot i had in mind started with in the 23rd century with the crew of a ST;TOS style consitution class, set between ST:TOS/TAS and ST:TMP they start of  rescuing the prototype starship USS Hyperion NX????-A (which was to be the unused modle Enterpise partually built for the unmade ST: PII) comining in, so at first we think it's the good old Enterprise only to find a Woman captain instead of Kirk and with an Andorian First Off. as well as a whole new crew, they manage to stop the renigade Klingons attack but they themselves are pursued by their leader in his  stolen Bird of Prey, into a forbidden nebula which seems they cannot escape where they discover a new planet... meanwhile  in the 24th century an Intrepid class ship is exploring the area, noting this was the same spot that the Consitution class had disappeared 75 (or so) years ago, they then recive a distress call within the strange nebula, after getting special permission to enter from Starfleet (before they even thought about asking) the enter the nebula  and find themselves with the missing ship in a null-time zone (simular to the Nexus, but a bit more complicated) at the heart of the nebula they find a barren M-class planet with only two life forms on it, the two crews join forces and encount a 16 ft tall reptillian Telosian like golden alien in robes, the alien explains it fled it's own galaxy and is in hiding from an immensly powerful planet sized tyranical enity called the Mon'dra which is a singular collectice consiousness in the form of a black morphiant  fluid which can remove parts of itself to create troopers and fighters etc., meanwhile the Klingons encounter a part of the Mon'dra and the renigade Klingon leader is possessed by it killing all the other Klingons before revealing itself and morphing into a trooper confronting the two starship crews and the golden alien as it tries to send a signal to the Mon'dra consiousness....


the pilot would be a prelude to a feature film featuring TNG/DS9/VOY and surviving members of TOS etc.


this would be hinted at thoughout this occasional series  a simular idea can be used with my other idea, see my reply on Ideas for Star Trek 2/12 (What do you think??? I welcome any comments )

Well Wildish, i examined your treatment and saw a lot of good stuff there, it may not be filmed but it was interesting, have you concidered writing it as a series of novels?

My favorite idea of Star Trek would be about Starfleet Academy cadets learning about UFP history in holodeck in classroom setting both in our timeline and maybe even other timelines as will. They go into Yesterday Enterprise timeline by information Romulan star empire get form Natasha Yar herself. They also go into part Best of Both world in which crew choosing to commit suicide rather surrender and rather be assimilated by the Borg.

Another was in Yesterday Enterprise timeline the UFP bad beat in six month left no choice but to surrender. However smell group genetic enhance humans decide to take matter own hands and try single hand chance tide of war in UFP favor by stealing Galaxy class starship and aim change tide the war in UFP favor. Force UFP look back if hold genetic engineer people Starfleet right or wrong.

First they need to put show place most people can see it. I say Star Terk.com would be the best place but that my option. Then they have showed it on Newspaper ad talking about to. Third show easily chance when the time needs were idea Starfleet Cadets study UFP history in the holodeck come in. You could chance the show almost at will. Good show the entire time strong moral lesson. Third way pays all these brigs sets and other decks these starships. Setting off Star Trek convents is perfect way. People way pay to tour decks and chance get destroy enemy the UFP and perhaps chance blast UFP starship while at it. So people not fan put some many ads on internet.

Truth be told they should stay away from original era shows, or prequels for that matter. Enterprise was hit, and miss, and with Abbrams rebooted/alternate reality Star Trek movies Paramount/CBS probably wouldn't want a similar era show that could cause confusion. Their best bet would be to set it in the TNG/DS9/VOYAGER era/continuity set more or less 10 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis.


 


The earliest we'd see a new Trek series would probably be sometime after JJ's Star Trek sequel. So maybe Fall 2013 at the earliest. What they need to to learn from is their past success and failures. They need to look back to what made TNG, and DS9 so well done, and well loved, and also look back to where they went wrong with Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. They also need to learn from modern day non Trek shows like Battlestar Galactica, and Stargate. Then hopefully they will be able to put together a good formula for a new series.


 


Another problem is having the right person in charge of the property. Lesson learned, never ever let Rick Berman near another Trek series ever again. Give the next series to Ronald D. Moore, and Damon Lindelof. Moore did a great job of being the show runner for fantastic Battlestar Galactica, and Lindelof was the creator of "Lost", and is co-writing the next Trek film. Letting those two run a Trek series even if it sucks it'd be better then the last two series, and it'd still be a success in some way.

What made TNG and DS9 successful was the lack of cable stations and first run syndication. Things you cant duplicate anymore. Also what made VOY and ENT fail was UPN and producers forcing their will on the show. I dont think the UPN fiasco will happen again but a new show will almost certainly have to fold to station pressure the second ratings drop even just a tiny bit.

Anyone involved with the last seasons lost should not be running a tv series again.

Yeah I agree the last season of "Lost" was a mess. However what Lindelof is, is a great idea man, he just needs someone to reign him in when he goes off kilter, which he didn't have with Lost. Having Moore as co-show runner would give Lindelof the stability he needs, plus all the great stuff Moore himself would bring to the series. Also having Moore running a Star Trek series would mean Moore could finally do things with Star Trek he's always wanted to do, without Rick Berman getting in the way anymore.

Everything after season 1 of lost was just extending it until it became unpopular and had to be ended. Lindelof hasnt really done anything outside of lost, he might have some good ideas but i think they should look for some one with more experience. RDM is a great choice to bring back to trek, hes done a lot for the franchise and has had success on his own since.

Idea Star Trek series would be Boraalans find get warp technology maybe hundred years after Star Trek Nemesis they find out UFP nearly allow race died out over Prime Directive in Star Trek After failing into talking UFP changing part Prime Directive peaceful. They are violation Prime Directive worlds near by UFP space left and right. UFP think they more power threat us forces on them they do not stop refuse. Boraalans turn Romulans for help which they do give. IF done right this kind longer amont war fighting however go deep both sides be right and wrong. They show suffer alien races that violable by help new technology however show place UFP successful blockade leading race to dieing. Making both sides come to term UFP agree less stricter form Prime Directive that allows rule broke if alien race survival would be destroy but would they Boraalans return agree obey Prime Directive unless race died out if they do. This be great show at least USA were having something similar the US separation between church and state. If we go to far to left we be allow practice religion we go to far right we everyone have a religion.
