I think there should be many more space battles in Star Trek, sort of like the DS9 episode "Sacrifice Of Angels" or "What You Leave Behind", or a cool new movie featuring all the trek Captains, well except Sisko of course;)

Well most of the people I know that don't like think it is too nerdy and for geeks hehe. However when I show them videos of such things as the big DS9 battle scenes they want more of that. I guess a lot of people might like some more action and less tech talk. Kind of how out of the movies, most people identify Borg and First Contact. Basically I agree with Gavin.

[COLOR=Black]Well, Making Star Trek cool is partly already underway, Because as we know the original series is currently undergoing a overhaul by its being re-mastered, And by doing this it is becoming more appealing to the younger fans, As a lot of them dident like the original series because of its graphics. To Keep the current fans well that is simple "[/COLOR][COLOR=Red]DONT DO PREQUELS[COLOR=Black]", That is what caused Enterprise to be cancelled as well as its ignoring continunity. And yes more space battles would be cool also, And to see more of what a starship can do such as Jettisoning the nacelles, use of auxillary shuttles (AERO RIDER, Voyager, WAVE RIDER Equinox), Anti-matter pod ejection, That sort of thing. Also i think more mirror universe episodes would be great, The evil Terran Empire. But we musent forget that Star Trek is still about the real life issues that Gene Roddenberry wanted in the show. I think the last series of DS9 and Voyager were quite cool, because of upgraded graphics and quality, Thats not to say i dident enjoy the rest of Star Trek.[/COLOR][/COLOR]

the graphics have moved on alot yes - but we haven't really moved the ideas of star trek on - they started taking themselves too seriously and we lost alot of the dry hunour that people loved in the original series - also i think there need to be chemistry within the characters - mabye a bit more action, a bit more gritty looking at issues of today - i think thats how stargate kept going soo long - they just have the right mix and thats what trek need to get back I may be wrong - its just my opinion

I totally agree with you about there being more mirror universe episodes. I would love to see a film set up on the game, Shattered Universe with Sulu:nodding:
