Unfortunately, George Takei is now arguably too old to play the role again. I found it interesting that Tuvok from Voyager served under Sulu. Also worthy of note was the presence of now-commander Janice Rand among the BOFFs.

IIRC, a choice was made between two possible storylines. One gave us Enterprise. The other was Excelsior.

From a production standpoint, this series would have the advantage of being able to use previously developed models, sets, and costumes, that were fully amortized many years ago.

After thinking about this, I bet George would be all over this, no matter his advanced age. And I STILL want to see it. Anybody with me?
Nah I would rather want to know about what happened with the Enterprise B. Because I have one in mind.

What about the ringship Enterprise? Poor thing always gets forgotten about.
