Awright, I've got a question.
When are we supposed to get any work done?
And where are the tribbles? :(
Edit: OK, n/m, I found 'em. All is copacetic.

Where the realism. Everybody knows that security officer Ensign Fodder (red shirts), never survives more than a few seconds on the planet.

:)..I wonder, was the choice of red, so as not to show the blood ( like the "redcoats" ) due to broadcasting hours and children watching etc ?..or to save on the cleaning bill for the uniforms for fake blood stain removal ?, or the cost of fake blood packs for the special effects dept ?..or did it just make him a better target ?..:)

It is time for a new Start Trek TV series. I have seen every Next Generation, DS9 and Voyager episode so many times. Enterprise was not so good, but once you get by the awful theme tune the series does grow on you. The original series with the wiggy man playing Kirk was way below par but it did start the whole thing off.
It is sad when Voyager is still the best sf series on TV and it is years old. We need a new star trek series based further in the future and hopefully featuring the time travelling corps of Starfleet, (Captain Branston's mob).
You have it wrong it is not just the red uniforms that die it is anyone who you have never seen before who is introduced into the dialogue as though he or she was always a regular in the show. This has been gold or turquoise uniforms in the past not only red.

Battlestar Galactica (re-imagined series) = newer then Voyager and at least as good. Stargate Universe was a brilliant series. A real shame that it was boycotted by Stargate fans, and ignored by non-SG fans for being from the SG franchise.
But yeah, where's the good SF? Its all fantasy at the moment. Boo.

+1 to that. I liked the original show, cheese and all, but absolutely loved the newer version.

Need to capitalize on the current vampire/fantasy craze:
- Vampires in Space (Star Trek: The Undead Generation)
- Harry Potter in Space
- Twilight in Space: The Sun Never Sets
How about a prequel prequel series, featuring Jim Kirk's father? (And with all due respect to JJ Abrahms, let's leave the timeline alone.)

50 Shades of Space..
( some of the subtexts of the original Star Trek were drifting that way from time to time )
Having watched Bonanza when I was a kid ..I could never get the music out of my head when seeing Lorne Greene in Battlestar Galactica..;)

I remember having to break it to my son that Boston Legal or whatever the thing was called was not William Shatner's first major TV series. OK, so it's not quite on a level with "Hey, look, guys-- Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings!" but still :(
...to say nothing of the possibly-apocryphal cartoon that shows one guy in medieval dress carrying bow and arrow accompanied by a kid with an apple on his head, and a second guy in TV Western garb with a black face mask armed with a six-shooter and accompanied by a closed-mouthed darker-skinned guy.
Caption: "Then it's agreed: The winner gets exclusive rights to the theme music."
Which reminds me that I also had to explain the line "Who you calling 'we', white man?" deployed every time son used the words 'Colorado Avalanche' and 'we' in the same sentence.

Reminds me of the number of Brits who who actually think that ..O Fortuna #5 from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff..was actually not written especially as the theme music for Old Spice TV ads..The ones with the surfer..
