Star Trek returning to TV?

I’m going to be honest here. I liked “Enterprise”. I enjoyed Captain Archer. Really enjoyed Vulan sexpot T’Pol. Never had a problem with Porthos the dog. And yep, didn’t even mind the opening theme. Goes without saying that I’m not a Trekkie – since most Trekkies, Trekkers and, er, whatever the ones that wear the uniforms to sleep call themselves – hated the show, but I’ve always thought I’ve had OK taste.

And I don’t really know why I felt the need to admit my enjoyment of “Enterprise”.. Maybe because nobody else ever will. So there! It’s out there! It’s done! Whip me with Romulan fetter throng!

But I digress, word this weekend is that writer Bryan Fuller (“Dead Like Me”, “Pushing Daisies”) wants to cash in on the impending success of the new “Star Trek” film (as you would), by creating a new small-screen “Trek” series.

“I told my agent and told the people of J.J. Abrams’ team I want to create another ‘Star Trek’ series and have an idea that I’m kicking around,” Fuller said in an IF Magazine. “I would love to return to the spirit of the old series with the colors and attitude. I loved ‘Voyager’ and ‘Deep Space Nine,’ but they seem to have lost the ‘60s fun and I would love to take it back to its origin.”

Aint it Cool managed to contact Fuller, who wrote for “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager” before hitting the big time with quirky series like “Wonderfalls”, and asked a couple of questions. Firstly, when and where would his new series be set?

“I would love to do it in the same era as the J.J. Abrams movie, but on another starship on a completely different adventure,” Fuller tells Ain’t It Cool. “But it really is a dream and there is nothing official about it at all.”

Meantime, and talking of Sci-Fi, how cool was the finale episode of “Battlestar Galactica” episode guys!? Couldn’t ended any better in my opinion. Just fuckin’ grand! Well done Ron Moore. Any new “Star Trek” series has its work cut out for it, after the magnificent “BSG”, as I see it.

Expendables loses 50!
