The Future of Trek on TV.
Fans may have had a blasé reaction to Enterprise, but with so many years of broadcast silence the one thing everyone is now clamouring for is new Star Trek on television. It will happen. There's no doubt about it. Just when that will be and what for it will take, however, are up for debate. In this episode of The Ready Room hosts Christopher Jones and Greg Harbin look at some of the concepts that have been proposed as well as some that fans have on their wish lists—Final Frontier, Federation, Titan, Star Trek Online, a series based on the adventures of the Enterprise-B, and one set in the Abramsverse.
In news we discuss Star Trek 2 vs. The Hobbit, TNG Remastered in HD, the Star Trek Red Sea Resort, the Trekathon event that screened and rated all 11 films in one sitting, an interview in which Malcolm McDowel gets all up in Kirk's face, the cancellation of $#*! My Dad Says, and Leonard Nimoy's appearance in Bruno Mars's new music video. Plus, Larry Nemecek joins us to discuss his current documentary project, The Con of Wrath.
