An academy series seems like it would have limited chances for exploration unless they go full magic schoolbus and make every episode a field trip

Would love to see an academy series that leads up to an intergalactic warp drive being developed, second season is that class getting the mission to be first to explore the Andromeda galaxy

The prequels and time travel and Milky Way politics are all played out. Star Trek needs a new blank slate. It was a compelling premise for the Mass Effect games but they fucked it up by sticking to the old selection of 4-5 species instead of inventing 4-5 new ones.

I started watching The Expanse recently, and I think it'd be cool to have a new Star Trek that followed people in multiple locations. I've always wanted to know more about what daily life on Earth could be like in ST

Like what if we had a series where we follow one main character on Earth, one main character on a science vessel, and one main character on a frigate patrolling the neutral zone or some equivalent conflict border, but all 3 of their stories are connected in a larger arc and they all eventually end up together

but if a new series just wants to be another crew on another Enterprise, then they've got to have a likable, optimistic cast of characters who steadfastly represent compassion, curiosity, and diplomacy in the face of a wide range of hostilities and complex moral dilemmas.

like yes please go back to single-episode plots with thinly-veiled metaphors of contemporary politics. we need that shit now more than ever

because this "edgy" wannabe-prestige shit where all the main characters are grumpy assholes isn't working. Discovery is a disaster on par with the new DC films

It's crazy how much of a unwavering house style each network has these days. I wouldn't mistake Discovery for anything other than a CBS show -- its pacing and acting and visual aesthetic is exactly like all the network's various forensic / procedural law enforcement shows. Just as Scandal and Quantico look and move like Once Upon a Time and Agents of SHIELD.

i posted a bit in the deletions thread that i broke my ribs so stuck in bed for a while and decided to get into star trek. im watching the original season and i really love the costumes of monsters and the landscapes of cities are real lovely as well. i found the first few episodes very forumaltic ie they meet someone who tricks them with super powers they have then its an issue on killing them so im now following this guide to decide what episodes to watch. im up to a taste of armageddon. let me know if u think im missing any eps! im also on an insane dose of opiotes atm for my ribs so not very coherent and apologise in advance.

The Next Generation was more or less the fully realized Roddenberry vision, so DS9 became a sort of reaction against that, trying to put in a bunch of the interpersonal conflict and political/moral messiness that Roddenberry always resisted while he was alive.

It also kind of got left alone to do its own thing, since TNG was airing for its first two seasons, and then Voyager was the shiny new show to launch the new television network.

my favourite part in the original series other than the show exploring different forms of society and consciousness is def spock and bones having stand downs against each other. where can i see these two things the best? most my friends recommended deep space nine so i was going to move onto that based only on their recommendations. i hadn't considered seeing how each series influenced the next.
