    Shouldn't that be "Daisies"?

    I just hope he's kept too busy with "Pushing Daisies" to worry about this. PD is my favorite current US show, so I'd like to see it lasting a lot longer than his previous shows.

    I think, actually, the worst thing that could be done with a new Trek is to "shake it up". The formula objected to by Mr. Fuller – the captain/doctor/security officer format as he describes it, taking place on a ship, is how Trek is done. To change that format would be like trying to do CSI without a crime lab, or Monk without a genius detective with OCD. No, Star Trek is about Starfleet, the Federation, and the officers who crew the ships, or starbases of that Federation. It is a format that needs to be done right – Voyager dropped the ball several times -but it is the format Trek was designed for.

    The original Star Trek seemed to have an adult sensibility whereas the later incarnations became increasingly cartoonish although each of the later series had flashes of brilliance and memorable episodes.The re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica showed the path to renewing the series: make the personal and political more realistic without easy resolutions and with fewer solutions that depend on realigning the flux capacitor.It would also be nice if nearly EVERY enemy didn't turn out to a misunderstood potential ally.A real opportunity was missed with ENTERPRISE when they invented new enemy races rather than going back to the Klingons and Romulans. They could have made the Klingons even more blood-thirsty, ruthless, and dangerous than the original series, which would have an ironic edge since fans would know they would eventually become our allies.
