I seriously doubt it - because of the failure of Star Trek: Enterprise (Which I actually thought was quite good - the problem was that they didn't use the existing canon for the period which had loads of potential), paramount are making a new feature film about the earliest days of captain Kirk's command on the first USS Enterprise NCC-1701. I'm not really sure that another TV series would be that popular though - although they are a laugh, they are all quite formulaic, and the massive burst of three series (TNG, DS9 and Voyager) and the TNG and Enterprise E era films (Insurrection, Generations, First contact) all took place in the '90s, and I think people may have had enough. There's about 800 episodes altogether of the franchise, excluding movies, so really I think it's gradually withering away.

I hope not.
 
The original, 50 years old, is pretty good. Everything after that dreadful.
 
It's simply narration turned into dialogue.

Why was it stupid? How is your opinion unbiased exactly? It was quite good for the time and broke a lot of boundaries, which is more significant than a few special effects. Female (Uhura) of considerable rank and command on a ship, a multi-ethnic cast and crew, interracial romantic scene, what more could you ask of a show that ran for a few years.

Eventually they will come up with something in regards to another Star Trek TV series because they are all able to draw in the trekkie crowd and even if they are not making top ratings, so long as they garner a good rating on cable, which is only about a 3 share, it is good enough to make money on. What made most of them up until lately bigger money makers was that they were syndicated rather than relegated to a cable channel. Local TV stations promote the shows enough to gather in a good audience each week, something the cable channels do not do as well because they don't have the constant local draw for news, sports, and other programming that draws people to the station. And believe it or not, you still have a fair percentage of people who do not have cable and use either an outdoor antenna or an in door antenna (rabbit ears) to watch local TV, as they are not interested in paying cable companies a lot of money for a lot of programs they will never watch.
 
I would not doubt that Majel Barrett (Mrs Roddenberry and Nurse Chapel on the original series) will continue to produce Star Trek TV shows until she is no longer capable of doing so, and even then she may turn it over to a trust to continue the legacy the Gene Roddenberry started which Majel has said she will perpetuate for as long as she can.

exactly my sentiments. the problem with both Voyager and Enterprise was that both had Vulkans who aren't like Vulkans (read: Spock). but that was not the only reason but the cast in both cases was a major reason of failure. DS9 worked well because it was pretty different from the previous Star Trek shows in many regards, however Voyager was just a weak copy of the original & TNG. and what happened to all those kick-ass clouds & energy lifeforms?

The Cardassians were prtetty cool, now the Bajorans WERE lame. You know, they could make a show were the Borg declare war on all unassimilated lifeforms.

the Borg underwent a serious change since the first appearance in TNG and the last encounter in Voyager. in TNG they appeared as some sort of mystical superior race of cyborgs whose massive ships even huge fleets can't stop. the last time we saw them on Voyager they were some sort of dumb man-toasters that could easily be outmanouvred and destroyed by a witty starfleet captain commanding a mediocre ship isolated from its homebase.

I think despite all of the canon and cast, there has to be a fundamental change from just a ship, a crew and people exploring the galaxy to keep people interested. A really good setting for a show would be star fleet command or star fleet academy.

I'm well aware that this is a fairly old thread, but I'm a Star Trek fan (mostly of Next Generation and the Original Series), and I must speak my mind here. I wouldn't mind a new Star Trek series, I know Enterprise was quite unpopular, even with Trekkies, but there is still potential in a new Star Trek TV series, especially after the released of the critically well accepted Star Trek film (the new one).

If they do another series, I'd want it to be mostly like TNG, to be honest. I suppose it's the one I actually grew up watching (well, I was born shortly after the first two or three seasons), so I'm sort of biased for it, but we need another Captain like Picard, with Solomon-esque wisdom, and understanding for his crew. Maybe that's what Star Trek fans are looking for in a new TV series?
