# 1 New star trek show...
09-10-2012, 04:25 AM
I have just seen on the net that Worf (Michael Dorn) has put his name and idea out there for a new star trek show, i was wondering if anyone has more information about this, if you think its a good idea and what you might like to see from it

If this is true i would like to see the prometheus as the main ship, with Worf as its Captain.

I think that theres a gap in the market right now for a good sci fi show and would love a new star trek show to come out

sorry to tell you but there is already a thread of this in ten forward. But hopefully we will get a show in the prime verse. They should do this while they do the alternate reality stories with the JJ trek,

I don't see it happening unless it's set in the abramsverse. That's where the trek story is continuing and much more importantly it's where the money is.

It's not the first show pitch, and the previous ones had writers, directors, and producers behind them. This one's got an actor whose character would probably make a worse captain than Janeway (though as Scorpion showed, "bad captain makes bad decisions and bullies anyone who disagrees" can still make for a decent episode).

Really not enough clout here to get wheels moving.

Really... Three years after Trek '09 and only a limited number of photos and no real info to speak of about the sequel... The money is REALLY there alright.

The MONEY is wherever they end up RELEASING the next Star Trek production. If they do a TV series, sponsorship will ensure profit.

If they do direct DVD sales, if they produce something like 13 hour-long episodes as part of an extended story arc, then they will make a lot of money on sales.

Look how successful Game of Thrones has been in DVD sales. Not everyone gets HBO. A Trek series made for DVD would work even without airing the episodes on TV. All they have to do is promote it heavily in every official and unofficial Star Trek / Science Fiction web site they can find, and people will be lined up on release day to get their hands on it. Base the viability of a second season on the sales.

Just saying...

Money is wherever people are interested in spending it...

Why do I get the impression people don't like janeway as a captain due to her being a woman, only captain I really see getting slagged yet also the only woman, ohhhh contravertial.

SyFy, to me, is a traitor to the genre. I don't watch it anymore and care less whats on it. Since when is WWE science fiction? I miss SCIFI!!

As for a new show, I have seen it said somewhere that CBS does not plan on reviving Star Trek as a weekly series until, at the least, the current movies are done. They nolonger have interest in running a series and movies simultaneously anymore. They don't want Star Trek to die but, they don't want to saturate it either.
