Is there something already comeing called Star Trek New Frontier? Or did you come up with it? Great name either way, but I'd prefer a film. I love the Star Trek series, but I think Star Trek will make way more money in the cinema, and other than TNG and DS9, pretty much all of the Star Trek series have struggled on regular tv, but people will go see the movies if they continue in just the movies. I think part of the reason why Insurrection and Nemesis didn't do well, is because there's alot of people who don't watch tv series, but they love to go see movies. Even though Insurrection and Nemesis don't really have anything to do with DS9 or Voyager, the people who aren't keeping up with the tv series, don't want to go see a film about a tv series that they haven't been keeping up with. Which is why I think the new film did so well, because it was a fresh start, and wasn't linked in any way shape or form to what came before it.
But tv series struggling having low ratings throughout their run and/or getting canceled, doesn't make the company interested in making more. Which is why we had no more series and no more films after Nemesis and Enterprise. Then we got the remake, which again was successful because it's a new franchise, it's re-starting everything.
Do not make it into either one! No more far future spinoffs, please. Star Trek needs to get back to its traditional roots, like it was back in the days of Kirk, Spock, and Constitution-class starships.

An all-new franchise is born when on this day back in 1963 the legendary BBC sci-fi program Doctor Who began with the airing of its first episode ever, titled "An Unearthly Child." 26 seasons later (in 1989), the Doctor would end only the first of his runs; he was resurrected for a telefilm as well as a kinda/sorta reboot in…See More
Well, unless something super-wild-unpredictable happens, I guess Star Trek: First Contact -- released on this day back in 1996 -- will remain my favorite of the Next Generation series of movies. I wasn't as thrilled with it as most Trekkies, Trekkers, and Trek enthusiasts were -- I liked it well enough, I just…See More
