Not sure if anyone talk about this here, but how do you see events in TNG playing out under the new timeline?

Different ships?
New races?
Different crew?

This might be fun playing out the what if. So what do you see happening after the NEW Movie in TNG time period?

Little would change. Vulcans do little to nothing in TNG. You see Spock and mabey an occasional Vulcan(They couldn't all be on Vulcan, they have colonies). 10,000 survivors makes little sense to me as they are a space faring civilization.

Vulcan may be a founding world of the Federation but there is not much there to write home about.

Well you had the fact the Klingons had a run in with Nero too, and he took out a ton of there ships. That would have changed a little history as well.

Picard would drink Chai instead of Earl grey and be slightly less bald

Season 1 uniforms wouldn't suck

Warp-drive would make an even louder boom

The Enterprise-D would have pulse phasers quantum torpedos and a third nacelle from season 2 on

Data would be emotionally compromised

Geordi's Visor would look like a 2010 Ford Mustang grille instead of a Cadillac air filter

Tasha Yar wouldn't be dead, and Worf would be one of the main villains

The Bridge would be shinier

LCARS would be blue already

Vulcans would all be living on Betazed where they would be the primary psychologists, psychotherapists, and governing officials.

Doctor Crusher, Wesley, and Riker would all be aliens of some sort for the sake of diversity and a better VFX budget.

Hand phasers would still be pistols instead of dust-busters

No more Admiral Sela

...and no one would be able to find Sulu.

Wow, I'm finding a lot of subtle bashing on the new movie. Grow up, the new movie was awesome. New timeline TNG would probably go something along the lines of this.

-The Enterprise D would probably look a little more streamlined, perhaps a Galaxy with some Sovereign sleekness to it.

-Wesley Crusher wouldn't be the deus ex machina to fix all problems in the first movie, and may be written off all together since he was a stupid character from his inception.

-Troi would do something other than crash the Enterprise into something every time she gets temporary command.

-Wolf 359 would be an even bigger massacre since the Borg would be even more advanced, assuming they find future Borg tech from the remnants of the Narada as well as potential debris from the Borg Sphere that went back in time to First Contact, which still technically happened in both timelines.

-We'd actually get to see Yar get it on with Data. Also, Yar would take Wesleys spot on the bridge.

-Doctor Soong would design Data to resemble a Vulcan in honor and respect of them, given that they are now a rare race.

-The Federation would be at peace with the Romulans, not the Klingons.

-Worf would still be a Starfleet Cadet, and be even more p1ssed.

-John de Lancie would still play Q and openly talk about his time with alternate universe Picard and perhaps even take new Picard to meet Picard Prime.

We don't know how TNG would look like.
Why?
We would all be blind because excessive use of lens flares.
That's why!

-Ship would look less like the enterprise and more like a variable speed vibrator

-every episode would have a shocking twist that is never fully explained

-picard would be killed off several times throught the show and come back each time.

-more episodes would be "dream sequences"

-wesley would be played by Justin Long

-More Q

-Borg would be even more bad-ass

-riker wouldn't settlle for troi, he would be even more of a *****....

-data would be compaitible with Mac's. And have USB support...unlike the stupid iPad.

-the finale would reveal that they were all photonics

-more lens flare

-less use of proper physics, in the interest of cool light shows.

-if the old enterpise can withstand a red matter explosion, then the new enterprise is indestructible! it will fly THROUGH planets...for funsies

-Geordi will finally get lasik eye surgery. its the future for F sake...

-tasha will still die...she was way too butch

-worf will seem less whiny and disobey more.

-more tribbles

-the bridge would no longer have wood panels resembling and old winobago

-more lens flare....part 2

-all canon will be replaced with temporal anomalies and re-written

Ok I can see Worf being a main villian type in a redone TNG, maybe he would kill Duras sooner, and he is the current leader of the Empire.

We would see more Orions in the Federation, maybe one will be on the Enterprise.

The Warp Effect would be matched with the new one, maybe even loader. lol
