    Perhaps, but the Trekkies (at least on the trek board) seem to be coming down 70/30 as hating the idea
    Go Gators!

    Star Trek: The Reboot Scripters confirm new film to be a "reimagining." by IGN Staff ; March 8, 2007 - While precious little has been confirmed about Paramount's in-the-works attempt at restarting their Star Trek franchise, MTV has managed to confirm today what many fans have expected (and hoped for): that the new film will be a reboot of the franchise rather than simply a prequel.

    While talking to the film's scripters, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, MTV.com dug up a few tidbits of precious dilithium crystal info, though they hit several roadblocks as well from the writers in their quest to confirm the many rumors swirling around the project.

    "Orci and Kurtzman confirmed that the film is not in any way a prequel but a reimagining of the franchise," says MTV.com, which also adds that the plan is to simply call the film Star Trek -- with no subtitles, Roman numerals, or colons anywhere in the name.

    "We're not going to start totally from scratch," Orci tells the site regarding the look of the film. "We want it to feel like it's updated and of the now. That's actually the discussions we're having now: how to keep the look of the universe yet have it not look like nothing's new. It's tricky."

    The pair would not confirm casting rumors during their chat, including the talk that Matt Damon, Adrien Brody, and Gary Sinise are in the running to play Kirk, Spock, and McCoy (a rumor first reported by IGN). In fact, Orci tells MTV (apparently jokingly), "We never said Bones was in it." Kurtzman would only add, "I'm the hugest Matt Damon fan ever. If he became [Kirk], great."

    (In fact, IGN recently reported that Dr. McCoy's role would be a small one and that the story is more focused on Kirk and Spock.)

    Kurtzman and Orci also said that the film will be more action-packed than any of the Treks that have preceded it, and that it'll be the "biggest one" in terms of budget.

    "The economic models of the other [films] were very much based on the fans out there and their purchasing power," says Orci. "With this one we're going for the broad audience to bring people into Trek for the first time."

    The writers are less forthcoming in the interview about whether or not William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy will have cameos, though they do acknowledge that a starship will be an integral part of the film: "I don't know how you make Star Trek without a starship," Orci says. "You have to trek through the stars, so you need a ship for that." The pair does admit, however, that they have, along with the film's director J.J. Abrams, met with Shatner and Nimoy.

    Paramount offered the team full access and support when approaching the franchise. That, combined with their script -- which the writers say adheres to Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's original vision for the franchise - meant this was a project they couldn't pass up.

    "Trek, more than anything, has always been about the human interactions," Orci says. "It's all about the human soul."

    Stay tuned to IGN for more Trek news as it breaks!

    Spike has been running the Voyager series, and I have been catching up with the joy of DVR. That series didn't get enough love.

    I would rather see them moving forward somehow. Picking up somewhere after Voyager, and DS9. I don't like the idea of more Kirk and Spock, without Shatner and Nimoy.

    "Enterprise" the idea was a lot better than "Enterprise" the realized series. If they'd have run "Enterprise" from the start like they did in the last season, it'd have probably stuck around and been a damn good show.

    The inherent problem with "Star Trek" is that, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 750 episodes, 10 movies, and enough books to fill a small public library, there is simply too much of it out there. Its hard to create a new "Star Trek" fan because most of what has been put out there since "The Next Generation" assumes an average to above-average familiarity with the material on behalf of the viewers. Its hard to jump right into the universe cold turkey.

    In that sense, a total reboot makes sense. You can pull a whole new group of people in on the ground floor so that they don't need to have seen the episodes that explain all of the various concepts and background.

    Having said that, they're at minimum 5-10 years premature on the reboot. You have to give SOME time to let things breathe, let people forget and get hungry for new product, and let a new generation of potential fans grow up before you go back and try it again. Even "Batman" took almost a decade off between the old series and starting the new one.

    I agree. "Re-boots" seem to be in fashion, and some, such as "Batman Begins" and "Casino Royale" were well done, but I really am not particularly interested in a re-boot of "Star Trek." Some things are best left alone.

    As a trekkie... I personally think the idea stinks... Now another TNG type movie, I could go for that. With some serious Wesley Crusher action...

    Agreed

    A reboot just ticks off 50% of the fan base right off the bat, great plan for profit

    If they want to do this they should wait 10 more years and then place it in the 28th century or something, going back wards is lazy story telling.

    The Charlie's Angels and Brady Bunch reboots made too many millions for Hollywood to abandon the concept of reboots.

    I guess there is some consolation in the fact that it's not going to be a reboot of TNG.
