Would you watch a NEW Trek Series based in JJ's Trek Verse?
 
Let's just say the new movie pulls huge numbers, and I think it can. Then a 3rd film in made, and JJ feels it's time to bring it back to TV.

But here's the catch 22, It MUST be set in his new timeline, AND..............

He wants to reboot TNG with this new show. We are talking about new actors, new look ship, and a lot of new twist to a few prime stories, and a ton of new story lines to go down.

Would you support a New show set in JJ's world, or be hardcore, and protest it by not watching one clip?

I have a feeling this might be the road they want to go down, but it will be based on what these next movies do at the box office. New younger fans, and hopfully more money in the bank.

So how do you feel about this idea?

I'd watch any series that had either Star Trek, Star Wars or Doctor Who (my three personal faves) in it's title, it makes no difference to me who is at the helm (on or offscreen)

Yes I would.

While I like the new films, my preferred course would be to go back to the prime universe but it does not bother me either way. I'll watch Trek as long as I enjoy it.

in a show you have to scale back the action and fx and they would be forced to do the more traditional trek shows which would probably win over some of the ones who hate XI.

Given that the trends in SciFi TV shows right now are to full-season continuous story arcs, I would probably catch the first episode, miss one, get pissed of that I have no clue what's going on, wait for the series to end, and torrent the whole bloody mess.

I didn't enjoy the first JJTrek movie, but I caught it in the theatre and bought a copy simply because it has the Trek logo on it. Along the same lines, I hate the Dr. Who reboot but I keep watching and buying it - it may not be the same show it was but it's still Who.

That in mind, I never bothered to buy Enterprise - IMO it was even less trek than JJTrek was, and frankly I couldn't be asked to rewatch a single episode, so if a new series managed to be that terrible, there is a possibility that I would skip it entirely.

Final note I think a JJTrekverse based TV show is unlikely, for a multitude of reasons, but another ST show may happen, with darker, grittier stuff than even DS9, and a massive rewrite of canon. My guess its 1 or 2 seasons total, probably on a premier cable network like Stars or HBO, then to syndication, with a massive fan outcry a la Firefly and subsequent self-referential and unintelligible film.

As an old Star Trek fan from 1969 - Yes, I would. TOS is still my favorite Star Trek era, and I have no real issues with a JJ Abrams series set in that era. ST09 was something the TNG feature films hadn't been in a long time -- entertaining.

I personally would like to see the long term consequences for the Federation. Vulcan was one of the core members of the Federation, it's destruction should make the galaxy much different.

I would not, and I would personally picket the studios of CBS, Paramount and root JJ Abrams out of his mansion and give him a trial by combat.

TNG reboot in the JJverse? Hell no.

If it was based on TOS with the current actors, ship, look, and feel. Sure, maybe.
