How to save Star Trek: Make it the True Detective of science fiction - Vox
Interesting idea. And it could work, and would expand Star Trek from the trekkie market (IMO) to perhaps a more mainstream audience. It could also focus on arcs, not the typical happy space camper cast for umpteeth seasons. You could actually focus on an issue on just one planet, or with just one species... or a particular angle, without being forced to stay there next season.
Also, the thought of this just leaves me weak in the knees:
Thoughts?Hannibal and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller (a Trek alum), for instance, would love to make a Trek series with Angela Bassett as captain of a starship. With the anthological miniseries format, both Fuller and Bassett could squeeze a 10-episode season into their busy schedules.
