POLL RESULTS: Animating Star Trek

Here are the results of the latest SF Signal poll.

Is the proposed animated Star Trek series a good idea?


(80 total votes)

Wow, talk about evenly matched!

A couple of comments this week:

“I do think it’s a good idea. I think it’ll help remove some of the pomp which surrounded Star Trek in its latter days, before it collapsed on itself. The Original Series had not only very good writing, but a sense of fun as well. I think the cartoon, done well, could revive that.” – Pete Tzinski

“Wesley rocks! Well, Wil Wheaton rocks, and that’s good enough for me. We need to start a netroots campaign for Wil to play the young Kirk in the upcoming ST XI. Now that would _REALLY_ rock.” – Tim Morris

Be sure to vote in this week’s poll about buying a book fom a vending machine!

  1. Will Wesley be a floating head in a jar? We’re talking a 165 year-old ensign, yes? I can’t wait to see another Kirk-free Trek production. Please make it happen!

  2. I loved the original animated series. I do not mind the idea of a new series. I dislike the re-imaged idea where the Federation has failed and things are not as bright and shiny as they were when Gene Rodenberry controlled ST. I like re-imaged BSG, but I want my Trek happier than that.

  3. You know, this background for the series reminds me of some of the scenarios for the Star Fleet Battles game. The game allowed for a lot of ship to ship, etc., actions. When it first came out, there were no computer games, so we made do with cardboard and the like.
    When ST-based computer games did come out, what was the major theme? Well, battles, not exploration.
    So maybe the re-imagined background has come out of a generation of gamers, rather than those who feel akin to Roddenberry’s idealistic scenario? Folks would rather see spaceships exploding than diplomacy?
    Or is it just easier to do a show with an explosion between every commercial break rather than try to develop a logical background, actual “stories” and the like?
