Why We Need a Star Trek Series.
Posted May 21, 2013 - 9:54:43

 So this weekend Crysta and I went out to the drive in and saw "Star Trek into Darkness." I'm not going to go too in depth on the film, but overall I loved it. It wasn't perfect, but what kind of Star Trek fan would I be if I didn't have nitpicks? In any case, if you haven't seen it already, go do so.

What this got me thinking about though was what I've been missing from Star Trek these last few years - and that's the quiet, character driven pieces. J.J. Abrams two films are very action driven, and that's great - but you never really get to soak in the world surrounding that action.

This is, of course, to be expected. All of those character driven pieces were television episodes. Heck, they were the TV episodes produced mostly to save money. Those pieces would feel very weird as stand alone films, and producing a "bottle movie" makes sense to no one really -- not even me.

And that's the weakness to only having a film series right now. We're getting the action filled two parters without the character pieces in between. This is why, really, Star Trek needs a new television series.

I don't care if its in the Alternate Reality or the Prime Reality. I don't care if it follows a ship, a space station or a team of misfit Starfleet Intelligence agents. Heck, it could be a Klingon Political thriller for all I care!

(You loved "House of Cards?" Well you'll love "House of Mogh!" I think we have a pitch here...)

Really, I think I'd take any Star Trek series I could get right now - because being a Star Trek fan isn't just about loving one series or having a favorite captain. We're in love with the world itself that these series and films play in. And I really, really want to see more of it.

I really like the Elite Force games. Because while you're on missions. You could explore the Federation vessels and some enemy vessels to an extent. And you could get into the action of being in a firefight against Klingons and Borgs.

Plus I really liked the whole concept of the hazard team. Being like a special force especially a Navy Seals of outer space(considering these series go by Naval ranks).
Hmm... I can't find the link, but I did see some mention of Seth MacFarlane being interested in being involved in a '90s style Star Trek show (as a producer or whatnot).
