Trilarion: Anyway, I wanted to add that Patrick Stewart is a superb choice and I hope that some other actors of TNG can be convinced to join too. Brent Spiner would be great.
Yes! That way Data could have the closure he deserves.

Actors from DS9 or Voyager could also make an appearence. Even it it's just for fanservice. We are still in the window when the actors are still available, do not waste it.

Another thing to note is that this will be an acknowledgement that the TNG/DS9/Voyager timeline hasn"t been abandoned. We will finally see what happened after the Dominion War.

Lets hope the writers for that new show do not leave Star Treks special utopian flair out in the cold this time and if they want to do new Aliens will actually do new Aliens and not pull such utterly unnecessary and major BS like DIS did with the Klingons.

After the first shock, I actually liked the new Klingons. They look like an alien species. They reminded me of the fantastic production design of Farscape, a show that backed away from "humans with headridges" (check for example the Scarrans). Compared to them, the old ones look like a human disguised for Halloween.

Anyway, I wonder what they'll do with Klingons in the new show. Especially if (when?) Worf shows up (I cannot imagine Muchael Dorn not wanting to be a part of this). Will they update his prosthetics/makeup? Or will they keep the classic look?
Also I must say that Patrick Stewart, for being now about a quarter century older than when TNG closed, looks remarkably like his old self (with a bit of makeup). He kept very well.

I wish I will look only half as decent when I'm so old as him now.

And thats IMO the problem. The DIS Aliens called Klingons could have been called anything else and it would have worked with Klingon fans just grumbling that they are a bit of a rip off. So they went from bad to worse and annihilated the Klingons in favor of Reman lookalikes. Who knows, a new race would have maybe been different enough warlike to really be new and even generate a new additional fanbase instead of pissing of the old one.

*sigh* DIS is a descent SciFi show on its own merits; but I hate it for wanting to be a Star Trek show. Its insulting and annoying in its hamfisted way to butt in between ENT & TOS with unneeded changes just for the sake of changes while it has been already proven that the classic look works with some modernization overhauls.

Dang, that was more than I wanted to spend on that topic oO

Sorry, its a bit of a sore point; I really dig the TMP to ENT Klingons and the decades of fine-tuning they had. :(

LootHunter: All I want is a screenwriter who actually understands and respects Star Trek theams and values. And has IQ above average.

Trilarion: They exist. CBS must just hire them.
I hope so. Because when Discovery was in production there was a lot of talk how staff is talented. How they understand and deeply care for old Star Trek and want to bring it with a new social and phylosiphical commentaries. And we all know how it went.
A very interesting video that tells what happened with Discovery and what will be with Star Trek in future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLl17YXrAZY

That is very depressing, but looks like modern Star Trek is going same road as modern Star Wars. :(

Memberberries and comedy? Yeesh..
The names Star Trek: Reliant and Star Trek: Destiny have been registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Will one of them be the title of the new TV show? Both?

I suspected as much. And frankly had my doubts about new show with Patrick Stewart. After this video, I don't think that it will be any good at all. I mean, there is always a chance that some genius writer and/or actors spin around even the most hopless situation, but for the looks of it that kind of chance is very low.

Let me guess. Reliant will be a simple clone of TNG, Destiny will be post modern leftist trash, pretending to be some fresh spin on the franchise.

I find the modern Star Wars and Star Trek rancid and no fun to watch and it seems most people agree even if they dare not say why.
