I'm not sure if I'm happy about this or not.
TNG was my intoduction to start trek and I was a propper trekkie, DS9 was good, I loved Voyager, but couldnt stand enterprise. I have sadly never watched the original series properly. It will certainly be interesting to see what they do, but I do hope that they do not try to re-invent old characters or re-write history as in the most recent films.
I would most like to see a fresh start with something set after voyager, then old characters can be brought back for little apperances.
It is a difficult genre to do right, there have been many different series over the years and numerous spin offs - star gate is perhaps the most obvious.
I think the only one that has survived the test of time and has mostly got it right is Dr Who, although that did have a number of years off the tv screen as well some re-writing ( i remember the doctor could only regenerate or so 7 times, now he's done more than that.)
I suppose its not supprising about a star trek revival what with the the x-files revival on its way.
