I have always hoped for a new series that would be a continuation of TNG. Have Riker as captain, etc. (*I understand this question has probably been asked millions of times before, but I would like to know what you think.)

Hey - yet another new series thread ... there's a surprise!


Riker/Frakes had gained rather too many pounds I felt, in his appearance on Enterprise, and like Shatner is possibly a bit passed it for a spell/return to the captain's chair. I can't see that happening. Any new series needs new blood - in all departments ...

In my honest opinion, I really don't see it.


If there is to be a new series, it needs to pick up from a different period.  Like that between the original series and TNG.


Only then can a brand new cast pick up with new stories.  And the sets do not necessarily have to be uber fancy.


That is the problem with any new series the producers all want to change things in their own version that it totally upsets canon.

Agreed - new blood, new timeframe. Prefereably after VGR. But here's the catch, I don't want another ship named Enterprise..! Too many..! We need a new idea also:

* TOS/TNG (aka StarGate SG1)
* DS9 wasn't even a ship (aka StarGate Atlantis)
* VGR was unique (aka StarGate Universe)
* ENT was a prequel (aka StarGate Movie - well, not quite but I like SG rofl)

Something new needs to be created, following the timeline (TNG --> DS9 --> VGR --> New Series)

I don't want yet another ship named Enterprise either.


I want the original ship named Enterprise ... NCC-1701


A new series set before Kirk (and Pike) but on the same ship under Captain Robert April (let's return as best as possible to Roddenberry's original vision).


I don't want it to be in the same timeframe as VOY or DS9. I don't want the possibility of it having any connection with either of them, or for any of their characters appearing in any new show. Don't go forward after VOY - go forward after ENT...


to boldy go where no man has gone before

If they set it as a prequel to anything they screw up canon, because they're going to try to do what they want to do.  So set it after Voyager.  IMO, set it 30-50 years after Voyager.  Characters from TNG, DS9, or VOY can then have occasional cameos.  Maybe a new ship, maybe a new name.  Probably the next Enterprise, though.  Never saw Nemesis, so not incorporating that into my ideas.


 


I'd like to see a crew that emphasizes the original species of the Federation--Andorians, humans, Tellarites, Vulcans.  Maybe even an Orion in the crew (something along the lines of Worf's entry into Starfleet).  


 


My set up:  A Klingon Civil War broke out on Martok's assassination.  Several Klingon colony worlds, settled mostly by Dominion War veterans, decided to defect to the Federation and appealed to Worf for help.  The seceding colonies fought off the ragged attempts to retake them and are now member worlds of the Federation; their system defense vessels remain Klingon-style designs with cloaking devices.  This puts the Klingons as a potential threat.


The Cardassians (and Romulans?) have rebuilt on militaristic lines.  Both are potential threats.  The Dominion has essentially retreated behind the wormhole, having built powerful space stations near their entrance.  They allow in unarmed research or trade vessels and refuse anyone else.  The Borg have not made an appearance since the end of Voyager.


As the show progresses, a new threat arises from beyond the frontiers.  What I'm thinking are Augments--(a Botany-Bay type ship fell through a freak wormhole centuries ago; or maybe something more recent, and have built themselves an empire).  Ships might bear uncanny resemblences to TOS Federation vessels.

I would like the Enterprise C or the Enterprise J. But showing Riker as a Captain would be pretty awesome as well.


But as I've seen some people say, Voyager and Enterprise were like TNG all over again. While I enjoy them, they could be right to an extent.


I think if there's another ship named Enterprise, it could be TNG over again.


If it's a space station or land based series, it could become DS9 all over again.


If it's a ship not called Enterprise, than it could possibly become Voyager all over again.


At this point I think it will be difficult to come up with something truely unique. Not impossible of course. We'll just have to see what happens.

There are loads of options, but please no more prequel stuff, no more TNG either. Star Trek needs to move forward and not live in the past. After Voyager would be wise, maybe 50 years after. I think a new ship would be nice too, or perhaps a Voyager-B or a newer voyager.

I'd like a new series of course,  it would have to be familiar yet new, so i'd say 25 years after Voyager made it back to Earth, set it on a ship, dosn't have to be Enterprise and give them the mission "To explore strange new worlds" thats what Treks about, but if CBS /Paramount or whoever owns the franchise nowadays are nervous about commissioning an entire new show, perhaps they should do a few tv movies, revisiting the DS9, TNG and Voy casts combined or seperatly so we can see what our heroes have been upto over the years, it would give the network and studio a perfect oppurtunity to test the water and see if the intrest really is there, i no it would be.

Charlie that is an excellent idea, the networks needs to test to see if there sufficient demand. Some tv movies would offer closure to some of the series enterprise and voyager especially.

I think they should make a new one called "Star Trek: Pheonix" which happens just after First Contact. It could tie into Enterprise too, and other things could happen, I don't know, I just think that'd be something I'd like.


Another thing that might be interesting to see would be like way in the future, with a whole new crew and ship design and everything would just be way different. That might be fun.
