wait a second.... a gritty startrek on showtime.... showtime is owned by CBS.... that would be epic.... another quarter in the jar...
I can tell you what I absolutely do not want to see:
Any more "Gritty scifi reboots". I could barely tolerate the new Battlestar Galactica. It wasn't fun to watch, it was a painful experience. All the characters were jerks, so why care about what happens to any of them? Worse still, its success (and bizarrely enough, Firefly's failure) have forced producers into thinking this is the only way to make a sci fi show. Look how well that turned out for Stargate Universe. I pretty much peg the blame for the current lack of real scifi on new BSG.
So no, I would rather never see another Star Trek ever again than see a "gritty" Star Trek series.
