If they put as much time and for sure money into a story, I would go see that. Better yet just bring back the cast that we know and love...

If writers don't have the creativity to come up with a new series, and have to depend upon "rebooting" an old (and beloved) series, they have no business being writers.

Would I watch a TNG reboot series? Probably, yes. But I'd much rather see a brand new series with a brand new cast.

1. It's not acreativity activity. It's about marketability, Holo. 


2. They're not going to reboot TNG. great series...but not pop-culture enough or mass appeal enough to do that with.

NO, NO, NO, oh and did I say NO?? I sure as heck did!!! Paramount & CBS better not even think of rebooting or touching TNG in anyway or they will lose me as a fan! I guess if they wanna keep writing more material for the next movie or wanna develop a story way further in the future like the 30th century that's fine and could be interesting. But leave our iconic beloved series alone!!!!

I think they should leave TNG alone. They would only screw it up for everyone.

These words please me. TNG satisfies my every
STAR TREK craving, completely! To me, TNG is
the totality of this franchise in one lucious,
Christmas Gift Pack. But please, never let
any disappointment with the STAR TREK brand
EVER deny you one bit of enjoyment of it ...

Well, firstly, "any Trek as long as it's good."

As for rebooting . . . I wasn't in favor of Nu-Trek when I heard about it,but I like the movies.

I do agree, though, that if reboot is all they can think of, then The Franchise is dead.

If it was a good movie a reboot of TNG would fly.  It's not a matter of iconic enough . . . the title "Star Trek" is all most non fans know, and TNG had millions of viewers for weeks on end in the beginning, and continues to gain a new audience today.  It's not like there aren't a lot of people comfortable with it (just check out the rescreenings going on of the episodes in hi def). 


Is it necessary?  Not really.  Hollywood is on the whole reboot craze though so that's why we are seeing it in the first place.  I suspect though that by the time the new version runs out of gas so will reboots in general.

Might work, with a few alterations.
Vin Diesel would make an excellent Capt Jean Luc Picard.
I'd change Riker to a women played by Anne Hathaway, Commander Wilma T. Riker.
Data would be a complete CGI Character, so his appearance would never change.
I'd make Worf a completely new alien creature so we don't have to do the entire Klingon thing again.
Definitely do away with Gordi, simply can't stand his character, but if he must be there show him as being blinded in an engineering accident and he gets new holographic eyes that can float out of his head...that would be pretty cool.
Bring back Lt Commander Yar, but make her a man who has sex with Data...very progressive.
Kill off Dr Crusher and replace her with Dr. Katherine Pulaski, a much more firery character then Crusher who always bored the crap out of me.
Wouldn't even mention that there was ever a Wesley Crusher.
Not sure what I would do about Troi...she was always really a very useless character...maybe make her a bartender instead of having Guinan.
 
Mmm...you know this actually sound better then TNG....

I'm not 100% sure you're trolling, but I still laughed so well done. Bolded the best parts. The internet would drown in its own Haterade if Anne Hathaway was cast as Commander Riker or if there was a CG Data. Vin Diesel as Picard doesn't even need to be commented on.....

I was half serious...especially about all your highlighted parts...and completely serious about La Forge.

I like the idea about replacing Crusher with Pulaski.
