Trek to get a Battlestar Reboot?
With the demise of the last Star Trek series "Enterprise," people are asking creative Brannon Braga whether Trek needs a "re-imagining" a la Battlestar...
Asked if a STAR TREK "reboot" similar to the new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA would work, he expressed doubts.
"First of all it's difficult to reboot STAR TREK. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA the original series was relatively, relatively speaking to STAR TREK, very short lived. And did not have anywhere near the fanbase that STAR TREK has. You can't just ignore STAR TREK. But you could certainly revamp it. But I don't think you can reboot it. And in the terms of the darker tones there are many, many people that felt that ENTERPRISE, for instance, should have been more like BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and been much, much darker and grittier. And maybe that is the way to go with STAR TREK in the future. I don't know. And I personally feel that one of the things that distinguishes STAR TREK is its positive outlook, so I happen to disagree with that."
